The Women’s Clinic of Atlanta provides abortion screening and advanced abortion screening with a licensed medical professional. This service includes the following:
- Do I have proof of pregnancy? In the state of GA, proof of pregnancy from a licensed medical professional is required 24 hours prior to an abortion.
- Is this a viable pregnancy? Is the heart beating or might this pregnancy end with a natural miscarriage? According to current research, 15-20% of all pregnancies end with a natural miscarriage. Prior to an abortion, it’s medically recommended to eliminate this as a possibility.
- Exactly how far along am I? The gestational age is the calculation that most doctors use to calculate a due date, it’s based on the first day of the last menstrual period. The fetal age is the actual age of the fetus based on conception. The gestational age determines what abortion procedure a patient is eligible for. Reputable abortion providers require ultrasounds prior to providing an abortion to confirm fetal sizing and the gestational age.
- Do I have an *STI? Abortion procedures can jeopardize a women’s health by increasing her risk of infection and other complications if an untreated Sexually Transmitted Infection is present. STI fees are due at the time of the appointment.
- What questions should I ask before I abort? It’s common for young girls, women, and families to rush into a decision when the pregnancy test is positive. Prior to an abortion, it’s important to get answers from an unbiased, licensed medical professional. Medical abortions are legal up to 10 weeks in the state of GA, and surgical abortions are legal up to 20 weeks. There is no reason to rush into a decision. The Women’s Clinic of Atlanta does not receive payment if you choose to abort or if you choose not to abort. Regardless of what you choose, and it is your choice, the Women’s Clinic of Atlanta and/or the licensed medical professional do not profit.
*It is medically recommended by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) to be tested for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea prior to a medical or surgical abortion to reduce the risk of Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID). During an abortion procedure cells infected with Chlamydia or Gonorrhea can travel from the vaginal opening up into the uterus. When the cells travel and are not treated, there is at greater risk for developing a secondary infection called Pelvic Inflammatory Disease. https://www.cdc.gov/std/pid/stdfact-pid.htm

All services are offered confidentially as allowable by state law. Arriving 20 minutes late for an appointment can lead to an extended wait time or the need to reschedule.
