Do you live on the Kenai Peninsula and find yourself facing a pregnancy you did not plan?  There are a few things you want to do before making a pregnancy decision.

  1. Verify your pregnancy
  2. Get an ultrasound
  3. Understand different types of abortion

Why verify your pregnancy?  

A urine pregnancy test reveals the presence of HcG (the hormone a woman produces when she is pregnant) – however this type of test does not verify that you are pregnant.  That is why the next step is important.  Only an ultrasound can verify if you have an ectopic pregnancy or if you may be miscarrying. Up to 25% of pregnancies end up in miscarriage within the first trimester, thereby ,eliminating the abortion procedure.

Why get an ultrasound?

An ultrasound determines if you have a viable pregnancy – that is, the embryo/fetus is located in your uterus, and not ectopic (outside your uterus), and if there is a heartbeat.  This is important to know before you have an abortion.  Since up to 25% of all pregnancies end in miscarriage within the first trimester, you’ll want to make sure your pregnancy is viable before you go further with your plans.  Plus ultrasound will date your pregnancy and you’ll want to know how far along you are which determines what type of abortion is available. At the ABC Life Choices, we provide limited OB ultrasounds and they are free to all our patients. 

Why understand the different types of abortion?

Different abortion methods are available at different stages of pregnancy.  We will share all the procedures and risks associated with medical abortions (abortion pill) and surgical abortions (in-clinic).
