Bookstores aren’t what they used to be. They aren’t where they used to be, either. With the proliferation of on-line resources, brick-and-mortar bookstores just aren’t the comprehensive retail destinations they once were. Even in their heyday though, we’re pretty sure their “how-to” sections never included the title: How to Terminate Pregnancy. If that’s the information you find yourself researching today, we are here to help.
For over 35 years, our DuPage County limited medical clinics have been helping Chicagoland women with their questions about pregnancy, abortion options and the other information that’s needed to navigate through the challenges of an unplanned pregnancy. If you are feeling alone or overwhelmed, please contact us today and allow us to assist you.
If you suspect you may be pregnant but are not absolutely sure, we will provide a free, medical-grade pregnancy test, 99.5% accurate 10 days after conception. If the result is positive, our experienced, compassionate client advocates will walk you through your questions and the decision-making process which follows.
- So what are the options when facing an unplanned pregnancy?
- How does abortion work?
- Which types of abortion might I be eligible for?
- What should most women expect?
- Does it hurt?
- Are there side effects women should be aware of?

Yes, as women today we are strong and independent. Still, this is one “how-to” that you needn’t try to navigate alone. We are here for you!The information provided here is general in nature. It is not a substitute for a consultation with a medical professional. Before any medical procedure, it is imperative that you discuss your personal medical history, risks, and concerns with your doctor. If you have questions during or after a procedure, your doctor should be immediately contacted. Avenue Women’s Center is not an emergency center. If you are experiencing severe symptoms, such as bleeding and/or pain, seek immediate medical attention. Contact your physician, go to an emergency room, or call 911.
