How Our Advanced Abortion Screening Can Help
Our advanced abortion screenings help answer important medical questions before getting an abortion, including:
Do I have signs of pregnancy and proof of pregnancy?
If you are experiencing signs of pregnancy, you will need verified evidence from a medical professional before getting an abortion. In Georgia, women are required to receive documented proof of pregnancy from a licensed medical professional 24 hours before an abortion. Our advanced abortion screening service provides Atlanta women with accurate, lab-quality pregnancy test results to confirm your signs of pregnancy. The advanced abortion screening also includes an ultrasound for qualifying patients.
Is my pregnancy viable?
Our medical team will determine if your pregnancy is likely to end with a natural miscarriage, including monitoring for a heartbeat. It is medically recommended to eliminate miscarriage as a possibility before getting an abortion.
How far along is my pregnancy?
In Georgia, the gestational age of your pregnancy determines what type of abortion you’re eligible to receive. Our licensed medical professional will determine the fetal and gestational age, then discuss your options. Safe and reputable abortion providers require abortion ultrasounds prior to the procedure to accurately determine the gestational age.
Do I have an STI, and will it affect my abortion procedure?
If you test positive for a Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI), an abortion procedure can increase your risk of complications or further infections. It’s medically recommended by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to undergo an STI screening and receive proper treatment before getting an abortion.
