When should I take a pregnancy test?
It is possible to receive accurate results before a missed period with certain medical-grade tests. If you have an at-home pregnancy test, we suggest not taking it until after having missed a menstrual cycle.
Or, come to True Care Women’s Resource Center for no-cost pregnancy testing.
Why do I need an ultrasound?
Once you’ve received a positive result after taking one of our pregnancy tests, it’s time to have a no-cost ultrasound. You need the information that only ultrasound can provide.
Learn if your pregnancy is viable or you’ve had a miscarriage, how long you have been pregnant, and where your pregnancy is located.
Can my partner come with me to my appointment?
We encourage you to bring someone who will support you. Your guest will be able to join you for some parts of your confidential appointment at your request.
Do I need insurance?
Your no-cost appointment is confidential at True Care Women’s Resource Center. We will not report your visit to your insurance provider.
What should I do before an abortion?
You need to follow our Pre-Abortion Checklist. Start with a no-cost pregnancy test and ultrasound. Then, learn about all the abortion procedures, side effects, and risks first.
What are the side effects of abortion?
The side effects depend on the type of abortion procedure you have. Common side effects include heavy bleeding, cramping, nausea, vomiting, and headaches.
What are the risks of abortion?
The risks depend on the abortion procedure you have. Possible risks include incomplete abortion, infection, damaged uterus or cervix, and various emotional consequences.
Do I have options?
After having your pregnancy confirmed with a positive pregnancy test and ultrasound, you have three options: abortion, adoption, and parenting. Our staff is here to answer questions you may have.
