Reproductive Health

You deserve accurate information to make the best decision for your reproductive health. During your appointment you will gain the medical knowledge that you need to ensure your health is protected.  There is a lot of politically charged misinformation on the internet and it can be hard to navigate what you really need to know before making a decision that can impact your health long term.

No one should pressure you into making any decision about your pregnancy, no matter what. If someone is pressuring you to have an abortion please reach out to us for help, we want to make sure you have all the knowledge you need before making a decision. That includes medical knowledge that many people do not consider when they are not the person in the unplanned pregnancy.

Expert Care

Family, relationships, school, work, life goals, health, safety, and personal beliefs – these are things that can weigh heavily on you. It is important to carefully consider these things before having an abortion. And these are the things that we can help you process in a safe confidential space.

Lots of people lean on others to help them with their decision. It’s good to choose people who you know are understanding and you can trust to give you accurate information. Your local Alcove Health Clinic has caring professionals that can answer any questions you may have. They’ll give you expert care, accurate information about all your options, and non-judgmental support along the way.

Here are few examples of information you may need to know about your pregnancy before making a parenting decision:

    • It is important to know exactly how far along you are. This medical information is important to determine what type of an abortion is available for you. If you are given incorrect information this could potentially be harmful to you.
    •  Ensuring the pregnancy is viable is important; if there is no heartbeat or if the pregnancy placement is not in the uterus you could end up paying for a service you do not need or it could be a medical emergency. This is why an ultrasound is so important and you can get a free ultrasound right here at Alcove Health.
    • Understanding what will happen to your body during an abortion is vital. No matter what decision you make you want to go in armed with knowledge.
    • Protecting your reproductive health by ensuring you have not contracted an STI is extremely important before you make this decision and you can get your free STI/STD test at Alcove Health when you come in for your pregnancy appointment.
