Before you schedule an abortion, consider that you should visit our Center to:
- Take a Pregnancy Test. We offer FREE lab-quality pregnancy tests here at our Center that detects pregnancy up to a week before your missed period.
- Get an Ultrasound Scan. It is Ohio state law to have an ultrasound scan done before obtaining an abortion, for the purpose of: confirming intra-uterine pregnancy, confirming fetal cardiac activity, and confirming how far along you are. At our Center, we provide these scans FREE and our ultrasound technician will be sure to show you the images and answer any questions you have.
- Get Tested for STDs. If you have an STD when you undergo an abortion, you can run the risk of getting Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID). If PID goes untreated, it can lead to infertility or other complications. At our Center, we test for both Gonorrhea and Chlamydia -- the two most prevalent STDs in Hamilton County!
- Think Over All Your Options. Right now, you're scared and that is understandable. When you make an appointment with PCW to receive any of the above medical services, we also spend time going over ALL of your options so that you can consider what the next best step is for you.
