What Should I Know Before An Abortion?

What Should I Know Before an Abortion?

Where can you find the accurate information you need before you get an abortion? The answer – a place that will not benefit financially from any of your choices. Our clinic, Alcove Health Women’s Clinic, is that place. It’s a wise choice for a safe place.

Your best bet when you’re seeking a well-advised decision is a place that doesn’t see you as a dollar sign; but instead, sees you as a real person with real dreams for your future. After all, you’re pursuing a decision that is best for your long-term health, not a decision that is monetarily best for a clinic.

It’s easy to go with the “I need to make a quick decision and just get it over with approach” when anxiety is high and you are seeking to just make the anxiety go away. And it’s not hard to find a local abortion clinic that will offer to help you accomplish that. The problem is, they offer you only one choice for how to fix the problem of your pregnancy. Abortion Clinics may profit from your choice, so it’s impossible to know if what they are selling is best for you. On the other hand, it’s easy to see why abortion is the best choice for the abortion clinic.

What if you know you want an abortion? No hesitation, no questions; you are certain this is the choice for you. Even then, an abortion clinic still shouldn’t be your first call. You want your first call to be to a place that will give you accurate information to see if abortion is even a medically appropriate option for you. You need definitive answers to all the questions you may not even realize you need to ask:

  • Am I pregnant? 20% of all pregnancies end naturally in miscarriage.  Meanwhile a pregnancy test may show a +positive during a miscarriage.

  • Is the pregnancy in the process of a miscarriage?  

  • Do I need other medical care that an abortion won’t address?

You don’t know what you need until you know exactly what’s going on inside your body.   You may not get those answers from a place that isn’t required to give you an ultrasound – or does not share the ultrasound with you.  

You can, however, get those answers where support, wisdom, and accurate medical information aren’t for sale. They’re a gift.  Every consult, every pregnancy test, every ultrasound – all free. Every time. For every woman. No cost. No fees. Just what you need to make the right choice that’s all about you.

If you think you are pregnant and are considering an abortion, contact our clinic at 757-591-8141.

The Abortion Pill

The Abortion Pill

Have you ever wondered what the abortion pill does and how it works?

Well, the term is called, Medical Abortion and it’s used for under 10 weeks gestation, it’s actually a combination of two different medications, taken two days apart. The first medication is called RU 486, or Mifiprex. It blocks the hormone progesterone from getting to the embryo- causing disconnection from the uterine wall and the heartbeat stops. The second set of pills, called Cytotec or Misoprostol, is taken at home 48 hours later. It causes uterine cramping to expel the pregnancy. Often heavy cramping and bleeding occur and could last for up to 1-2 weeks.

IF for any reason, someone changes their mind after taking the first medication, but BEFORE taking the second medication, a reversal protocol could be possible. It’s best to begin the reversal protocol within 72 hours of taking the RU486 pill. High doses of progesterone are used to counteract the RU 486. There is a nationwide hotline number to call that will connect the woman with a medical provider to begin this treatment. The success rate is between 64-68%, meaning their pregnancies continued and they delivered their babies.

If you have taken the Abortion Pill and regret this decision – call the 24-hour hotline 877-558-0333 and they will connect you with a medical professional who can guide you towards reversing the effects of the abortion pill.
