If you are facing an unplanned pregnancy, you may be wondering why you should consider speaking with the Pregnancy Resource Center about abortion and your pregnancy options. Abortion is a serious medical procedure, so it is important to have all of the facts before making a decision.
Like any procedure, there are risks and side effects that women should be made aware of. Your health matters! PRC of Glenwood Springs does not preform or refer for abortion.
Learn More About Pregnancy
If you have decided that you want an abortion, there are several things that you will want to do beforehand. Learning more about your pregnancy will tell you which type of abortion you are eligible for.
An ultrasound can provide the following information:
- Viability: Ultrasounds can tell you whether your pregnancy is viable and growing, or if you have had a miscarriage. Almost 20% of pregnancies end in miscarriage, and miscarriages may require further medical treatment.
- Gestational Age: Ultrasounds can determine gestational age, or how far along you are. Medical abortions are only done up until ten weeks in pregnancy.
- Location of Pregnancy: It is crucial to determine where your pregnancy is located. Some pregnancies are ectopic pregnancies, which is when a pregnancy is located in a location other than the uterus, such as in a fallopian tube. Ectopic pregnancies are very dangerous if left untreated and require medical treatment.
