Verify Your Pregnancy
Before getting any type of abortion, you will need to verify that you’re actually pregnant. Even if you’ve taken an over-the-counter test, it’s best to have an accurate, laboratory-quality pregnancy test and ultrasound to confirm your pregnancy.
Contact the Pregnancy Clinic to make an appointment for a free, laboratory-quality pregnancy test. If your test is positive, our medical staff may schedule an ultrasound to determine the viability of your pregnancy. An ultrasound will provide important information you’ll need if you’re considering abortion.
Before You Decide
If you’re seeking abortion, you should know that up to 30% of early pregnancies end in natural miscarriage.¹ Visit the Pregnancy Clinic to learn if your pregnancy is viable (living).
If you’re considering abortion in Annapolis, Bowie or Severna Park areas, the Pregnancy Clinic offers free and confidential information, counseling, and medical services to equip you to make the best choice for your situation. Contact us to talk to our professional Pregnancy Clinic staff and medical personnel.
Ultrasound Before Abortion
An ultrasound is an important step if you’re considering an abortion procedure. An ultrasound will tell you how many weeks pregnant you are, which determines the types of abortion methods. It will also tell you if the pregnancy is viable (living) and the location of your pregnancy. This information is important as you are in the decision making process.
