When considering an abortion, your health and safety are important.
It is good you are taking the time to do some research before you make your final decision because there are risks, just as there are with any other medical procedure, and you are wise to weigh them. Skylark does not provide or refer for abortions but our staff can provide a safe and confidential place to assist you in acquiring medically-accurate information as you make an informed choice.
Your health and safety are important to us. If you think you are pregnant, find out for sure! Take the steps to get the medically-accurate information you need.
Step One: Are you pregnant?
This is always the first question to ask. It’s important to get verification of pregnancy from a reliable independent source like a pregnancy test. Our center is here to help you confirm your pregnancy on a more personal basis, one-on-one, and to look at your particular situation and health factors.
Step Two: Is this pregnancy viable?
If you have had a positive home test, you might be feeling overwhelmed. However, remember that a home test is designed to detect the presence of a hormone, nothing more. It does not have the ability to check if a pregnancy has implanted and is progressing normally. The only way to verify this is by ultrasound. Skylark provides these at no cost to you! Give us a call or submit an online request to schedule your appointment today.
These first two steps are very important when making a pregnancy decision, as they will help inform you for your next steps.
When abortion is an option you are considering, our services can help you in your decision. Our medical grade HCG urine pregnancy test can confirm your pregnancy, and a limited OB ultrasound can determine if your pregnancy is viable while also giving you vital information on your pregnancy’s development. This is important information to have when reviewing the abortion options available to you.
According to the Department of Health and Human Services, having gonorrhea, chlamydia or bacterial vaginosis can increase a woman’s chance of having an infection after an abortion procedure. This is important because more than one million pregnant women are annually diagnosed with a sexually transmitted infection.
Before scheduling an abortion procedure, make sure you confirm your pregnancy through a medical-grade HCG urine test, receive an ultrasound to determine pregnancy development, and are tested for any infections that may affect your health. Skylark provides sexually transmitted testing and treatment at no cost.
