Per WebMD, “because the early symptoms of pregnancy often mimic the symptoms you might experience right before and during menstruation, you may not realize you’re pregnant.”

If you did not plan on getting pregnant, you may want to have an abortion. But there is no need to take that step until you have confirmed that you are really pregnant. In fact, there are four things that our medical team advises you do before you schedule your abortion.

1. Obtain medical proof of pregnancy: Before you can have an abortion in the state of Georgia, you are required to have official proof of pregnancy (a piece of paper from a doctor’s office stating that you are pregnant). We can provide that to you for free.
2. Determine if your pregnancy is viable: Statistically, one in five pregnancies will end in a natural miscarriage. If that is the case for you, then there is no need to go through an abortion procedure. An ultrasound is the best means of determining if you have a viable pregnancy, meaning the pregnancy is inside the uterus, and there is a heartbeat. We can provide an ultrasound to qualifying patients at no charge.
3. Determine how far along you are in your pregnancy: The limited ultrasound provided at our clinic will provide the evidence-based confirmation needed and tell you exactly how far along you are, which determines which type of abortion, medical or surgical, will be an option for you.
4. Protect your Reproductive Health: Prior to having an abortion procedure, it is important to know whether or not you have an STI (Sexually Transmitted Infection). STIs can spread during an abortion procedure. This can cause PID (Pelvic Inflammatory Disease). If left untreated, this disease may lead to infertility. The Women’s Clinic of Atlanta provides testing for two of the most common STIs, gonorrhea and chlamydia, plus initial screening for HIV.

The medical professionals at the Women’s Clinic of Atlanta are trained and licensed medical professionals who will provide caring and confidential care.
