Why Alternatives Medical Clinic Should Be Your First Choice

Abortion clinics charge for their pregnancy confirmation services. Alternatives Medical Clinic offers a confidential place to confirm if you actually are pregnant with a free and comfortable limited ultrasound exam. We also provide an unhurried setting to get all of your questions answered regarding your pregnancy choices.

Do I need a ultrasound before an abortion?

Getting an ultrasound before an abortion is recommended because you will need to determine the gestational age of your pregnancy to know what type of abortion you need. A limited ultrasound also verifies your pregnancy or indicates if your body is preparing for a natural miscarriage.

What tests are done before an abortion?

You should have a pregnancy test as well as STI/STD testing and treatment.

What happens during an abortion?

This depends on the type of abortion you get. If you get a medical abortion, you will likely be taking two different medications. One pill stops the pregnancy, and the other pill expels the pregnancy tissue from your body.

If you get a surgical abortion, a doctor must insert a speculum to view inside your vaginal canal. Your cervix will be stretched open with dilators before the procedure. Next, the doctor will insert a tube through the cervix into the uterus, which is attached to a suction device. This will empty the uterus.

Do abortions hurt?

Pain and discomfort levels vary from woman to woman. Some women experience the physical side effects of severe cramping, heavy bleeding, fever, chills, vomiting,  etc.

Additionally, some of the emotional and psychological side effects don’t always present themselves until much later.

How long does the pain last after an abortion?

You can expect to experience light to heavy vaginal bleeding accompanied by cramping for about two weeks. However, if you continue to have bleeding and cramping for more than two weeks, you should seek medical attention. Seek emergency medical care if you have excessive bleeding at any time.
