When scheduling an abortion in Rhode Island, a pregnancy evaluation is standard care for any woman considering her next steps. There are three important questions you need answered in order to determine your options:
- Is my pregnancy potentially viable? Statistically, 1 in 5 early pregnancies end on their own before 7 weeks. (1)
- How far along am I? This is important because your gestational age will determine the type and cost of the abortion procedures you might be eligible for.
- Do I have an STI (Sexually Transmitted Infection)? Having an abortion with an active STI increases the chances of serious side effects like pelvic inflammatory disease. (2)
At Harmony, we offer the answers to these questions in a free, confidential, one hour appointment.
