It happens everywhere. A missed period, a positive pregnancy test—but this isn’t the right time. You’ve heard that there’s a pill you can take to solve this problem. Maybe someone said it will “force a miscarriage” or “bring on your period.”
If you’re wondering about the abortion pill in Wheaton, we hope you’ll visit our Avenue Women’s Center office on the border of Glen Ellyn and Lombard, located near I-355 and Roosevelt Rd. Please contact us today.
When you have a concern that is this significant, it’s easy to fall into a tailspin of worry. At Avenue Women’s Center, we encourage you to slow down and take things one step at a time.
If you think you might be pregnant, the first step is to find out for sure. If you haven’t already had a medical-grade test, you can receive one for free at Avenue Women’s Center—and get your results in a few minutes.
Next, you’ll want to know if your pregnancy is likely to continue or might turn out to miscarry naturally. An ultrasound can detect signs of miscarriage, which occurs in 1 of every 5 to 6 pregnancies.
The next question is how far along is the pregnancy? The abortion pill can be used through 10 weeks of pregnancy. You can estimate how far along you might be based on your last period, but an ultrasound provides more accurate information. Some women are farther along than they thought—they may continue to have a period, or period-like bleeding even when pregnant. Some women find they are less far along than expected, such as those with irregular periods or who have missed periods due to birth control hormones.
Finally, we recommend learning about how the abortion pill works and what to expect as far as your recovery and possible risks. Each woman faces a very personal decision about whether to pursue the pill or the surgery for the termination procedure, but the trained staff at Avenue Women’s Center can help you consider things from every possible angle.
Avenue Women’s Center is conveniently located for women who are wondering if they might be pregnant, who have had a positive test, or who are wondering about the abortion pill in Wheaton. Our quiet, comfortable Glen Ellyn / Lombard office enjoys a discreet location in an office building on Roosevelt Road between I-355 and Finley.
One woman who visited us, when asked what she liked best about Avenue Women’s Center, wrote: “[My client advocate’s] voice was soothing and the environment was calm.”
