Sometimes in life, we give ourselves ultimatums and operate by “if/then” statements. This may have helped you make decisions in your past. But it’s important to recognize some situations are a bit more complex than we might be ready to handle. Maybe right now you’re concerned you may be pregnant and are waiting to take a pregnancy test. Even as you wait, you feel confident that if the test is positive you’ll have an abortion. But is the situation as straightforward as it may seem? Is making a pregnancy decision more complex than just choosing abortion if your pregnancy test is positive?
It’s important to view your potential pregnancy decision as the complex situation that it is. Not only is it crucial to learn about the state of your pregnancy, but there are different abortion methods as well. You don’t have to figure all of this out alone. Avenue Women’s Center is here to walk with you during this uncertain time. We offer free and confidential pregnancy tests to help you in your decision-making process.

A Pregnancy Decision is More Than a Test Result
Your first step is to determine if you truly are pregnant. It can be easy to think your mind is made up, even before you know the outcome. Take a pregnancy test and find out for sure if this decision is one you have to make. Avenue offers lab-quality, high-sensitivity pregnancy tests at no cost.
Then, it may seem easy to decide that a positive pregnancy test means abortion. But even if you’re set on abortion, you need to find out which type you’d be eligible for. Learning as much as you can as you make your way toward your decision is crucial.
Confidential Services to Help Your Decision
While making your decision it’s important to find factual and updated information about your options as well as your own pregnancy. Avenue Women’s Center offers always free, always confidential services to help your process. If your pregnancy is confirmed, we can perform an ultrasound exam to determine the likelihood that this pregnancy will continue on its own or end naturally in miscarriage. If the latter, there won’t be a need to receive an abortion procedure. The ultrasound can also tell you how far along you are, which will inform you of the abortion procedures you qualify for.
As you face a possible pregnancy, sometimes it is a comfort to have support and unbiased, compassionate care from a professional. Our consultants would love to be with you as you take a pregnancy test and read the results. You don’t have to be alone.
Don’t feel like you have to face a possible pregnancy by yourself. Avenue Women’s Center would love to provide our free services and assistance to help you in your journey. Our expert staff is trained to listen to your concerns and answer any questions you might have.
