Abortion Questions and Answers

Each situation and personal circumstance is different. However, in order to protect your health, you always need to ask these questions:

If you have had a missed period or are experiencing pregnancy related symptoms, taking a test is the first step. Even if you have had a positive result at home you will want to come in for a medical quality pregnancy test at Real Options.

It is also important to know if you have a viable pregnancy, because one in five pregnancies end in miscarriage, making abortion unnecessary.

Real Options offers free pregnancy testing, options assessment, and confirmation ultrasounds.

It is important to know how far along you are to determine what abortion procedures are available to you. A sonogram is the most accurate way to date a pregnancy. Real Options provides free sonograms conducted by certified sonographers and reviewed by our OB-GYN Medical Director.
