If you’ve recently had unprotected sex or the condom broke, you might be feeling anxious about the possibility of pregnancy.
Emergency contraception is any type of birth control used after unprotected intercourse or a known or suspected contraceptive failure (e.g. a broken condom) to attempt to prevent pregnancy.
Commonly sold as Plan B One-Step and ella®, these emergency contraceptives may reduce the chance of pregnancy. These medications are reported to work in several possible ways: Delaying ovulation, blocking sperm from joining with an egg, or preventing a fertilized egg from implanting – some may consider this a very early abortion.1,2,3,4
Emergency contraception does not prevent the spread of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and there are potential risks and side effects to be considered.4

COST-FREE PREGNANCY OPTIONS CONSULT:
We provide lab-grade pregnancy testing. If the test is positive, we can schedule an ultrasound and talk through your pregnancy options.
CONSULTATIONS ON ABORTIONS AND YOUR OPTIONS BY TRIMESTER
Your gestational age determines your due date and impacts your pregnancy options. Only an ultrasound exam can accurately determine gestational age.
An ultrasound is needed to determine which options are available to you. We can determine how far along you are and if the pregnancy is viable. You can also talk to a nurse about your medical history, learn more about the side-effects of the abortion pill and surgical abortions.
Do I need an ultrasound before an abortion?
An abortion clinic may or may not offer an ultrasound before an abortion. An pregnancy test and ultrasound can confirm a viable pregnancy and estimate how far along in pregnancy you are. If you are considering abortion, an ultrasound will provide important information that will tell you more about your options. Abortion costs vary depending on how far along you are and the abortion procedure that you receive. Speak with us today about our free and confidential ultrasound services.
