KNOW FOR SURE
If you think you may be pregnant, your first step is to schedule a pregnancy confirmation appointment. A missed period is the most common indication, but it doesn’t necessarily mean you’re pregnant.
Pregnancy tests can provide invalid results, and false positives can still happen. Hormonal changes, stress, diet, and exercise all influence your cycle and reproductive health. Know for sure. Contact Hope today.
HOW WE CAN HELP
If your pregnancy test is positive, it is important to see if your pregnancy is occurring within your uterus, if there is a heartbeat, and then determine how far along you are.
The medical professionals at our center can perform a limited obstetrical ultrasound, giving you essential information at no cost. You can also talk through your options without any coercion or cost involved.
All services at Hope are confidential and completely free of charge. Schedule an appointment today.
AN INFORMED CHOICE IS AN EMPOWERED CHOICE
Time is on your side. If you are pregnant, pause and learn about all your options and how it impacts your future before making a decision. We provide a judgment-free, confidential environment where you can learn about:
- the abortion pill
- abortion procedures
- single parenting
- family resources
We provide the support and answers you need to make a fully informed choice. No matter what your circumstances are or what you decide, we are here for you.
To safeguard women’s health outcomes, The Hope Center offers free STI testing for Gonorrhea and Chlamydia for all clients considering abortion. In the event of a positive result for either infection treatment will be offered at no charge to our client.
STIs & STDs: What are they?
An STI (Sexually Transmitted Infection) is an infection that does not show any physical signs or symptoms. It is contracted from another infected person through sexual activity, including vaginal, oral and anal sex and skin-to-skin contact. It becomes an STD (Sexually Transmitted Disease) when symptoms appear. It’s important to remember that not all infected people will have signs or symptoms. The problem is that some of these STDs can cause a lot of damage and can be passed to your partner without your knowledge. You do not have to have symptoms to be contagious; you can spread the disease any time you engage in sexual behavior. Concerned you might have contracted an STI? Contact us for free and confidential STI testing.
After Abortion Care
For women who have had an abortion, there can be unanticipated emotional distress
. This can happen in the following months and even years after. We offer caring and confidential post abortion support at no cost to any woman who desires help to process the various emotions that can be present.
