Pregnancy. Not planned. Not now. But you just missed your period, which means you must not be too far along. Your friend tells you, “There’s a medication you can take to no longer be pregnant. It’s like a miscarriage or a really heavy period.” If you’re researching the abortion pill in Wheaton, Avenue Women’s Center is your first step. We offer necessary services for Chicagoland women who are just finding out they are pregnant and are looking into their options. To discuss your situation, please contact us.
If you are searching for information about the abortion pill in Wheaton, we are here to help. Before obtaining the abortion pill, the following steps are recommended to ensure your safety:
- Confirm that you are in fact pregnant by receiving a free medical grade pregnancy test.
- Ensure that your pregnancy is located in your uterus and is not ectopic, via ultrasound. (Statistically approximately 2% of pregnancies are diagnosed as ectopic.)
- Determine if your pregnancy is likely to continue or likely to miscarry, via ultrasound. (Statistically between 10-20% of pregnancies miscarry naturally on their own, without the use of the abortion pill.)
- Discuss your options with a pregnancy advisor to determine your qualifications and preferences regarding surgical abortion or the abortion pill.
We often hear our clients say that there are pros and cons to both the abortion pill and abortion surgery. Some women believe that the abortion pill feels like a more natural route to end their early pregnancy. Others prefer the surgical abortion as it seems more time-effective for them. Also, most women find it is important to learn exactly how the abortion pill works.
For that information and more, schedule your free abortion pill consultation and ultrasound at one of our offices today. Avenue Women’s Center has offices in Elmhurst, Glen Ellyn / Lombard, Naperville, West Chicago, and Wood Dale, Illinois, and is the first step for every woman researching the abortion pill in Wheaton.
