Obtaining Relevant Information About Your Pregnancy

If receiving confirmation of a pregnancy through a doctor while uninsured poses a financial concern, then you may want to consider some alternative resources. You may be able to obtain a medically approved pregnancy test through a first-step options clinic, like Avenue Women’s Center, or a local health center. After taking the test, if you see a positive sign, then you may want to obtain relevant information about your pregnancy and your potential decisions before you make your choice.

Some women may feel overwhelmed after receiving confirmation of a pregnancy, and it’s understandable that you may think you need to make a choice about parenting, adoption, or abortion immediately after taking the test. But ensuring your overall health and the gestational age of your pregnancy is usually relevant in the decision-making process, and you may want to consider scheduling an ultrasound exam before you decide on one of your options.

Considering Abortion Without Insurance

Often medical coverage can be a concern, regardless of the pregnancy option you are considering. If you are looking into abortion, you may wonder if the procedure is covered by insurance or if there is any financial assistance available. Coverage and assistance options vary from state to state. However, prior to moving forward with any abortion plans, it is important to find out more information such as abortion procedures and types, potential after effects or risks, and how far along you might be. Gathering this information beforehand will assist you in deciding if abortion is the best option for you.
