Coming in for a confidential pregnancy consultation can provide two kinds of abortion information that will be helpful for you:
—Information for you. This includes a basic overview of the different procedures, including the abortion pill and the surgical procedure, what you might expect, a general cost estimate, and a chance to discuss any concerns you may have.
—Information from you. Some of what you need to know before an abortion actually comes from you.
Pregnancy information: This includes how far along the pregnancy is, which determines the kinds of procedures you can get. The age of the pregnancy can be estimated using the first day of your last period, and confirmed more accurately using ultrasound. Ultrasound can also let you know if you may have a higher-than-usual chance of miscarriage.
Personal information: Other information that your client advocate might ask about includes your beliefs and history, the circumstances you are facing, if any one is pressuring you to abort, and how sure or unsure you feel about getting an abortion. You know these things already, but sometimes saying them out loud in a safe, supportive space can help you get a fresh perspective.
You might be thinking, “I don’t need a fresh perspective, I just need to know if I’m too far along to take the abortion pill!” But we want to encourage you that other women who have been in a very similar situation have found it helpful to take time to consider all the information about abortion, including facts, feelings, and whatever is in between. Our visitors have said things like:
