Answers to Frequently Asked Questions
Perhaps you are afraid to contact us but you have some questions. We hope that the answers to these general questions listed below will help you.

How Do I Get Pregnant?
A woman becomes pregnant through sexual intercourse or other sexual activities when sperm from the man travels up through the woman’s vagina and into her uterus. Pregnancy occurs when a sperm fertilizes an egg in the woman and then this living human embryo implants itself in the uterus wall.

Can I Get Pregnant Without Having Intercourse?
Believe it or not, the answer to this question is yes. Pregnancy can happen any time that sperm is ejaculated or pre-ejaculated out of a man and spilled near the woman’s vagina.

What Are The Symptoms of Pregnancy?
Many women don’t experience any symptoms until after they have missed their period at least a week or two. Nausea, swollen breasts, being tired or dizzy as well as frequent urination are common symptoms. It is possible that any combination of these symptoms could mean you are premenstrual or that you have some illness. The only way to be sure is to have a pregnancy test. For many women, especially young women, irregular periods are fairly common. This means that the period can be delayed. These irregularities can happen from month to month. Although pregnancy could be a reason for missing a period, it could also be caused by illness, travel, worry, or stress.

How Accurate Is A Pregnancy Test?
Our test is a urine-based test, and according to the manufacturer of this product, it is 99.7% accurate. Other tests may vary in their accuracy.

How Does A Pregnancy Test Work?
Nine days after conception, urine-based pregnancy tests work by picking up a hormone that you body produces when you are pregnant. If the test is done too early in the pregnancy, it may not be able to find the hormone yet and the result will show a “false negative” result. It is best to wait until nine days after intercourse, and the first morning urine sample would be the best when tests are taken this early.

Will You Tell Anyone About My Visit To Your Center?
All our services are confidential which means we won’t tell anyone (parents, friends, etc) that you visited us and we won’t contact you afterward for any reason unless you give us permission. We are here to help you and to talk with you about your concerns.

Is The Morning After Pill Safe?
Not always. Some of the possible side effects of this drug are irregular bleeding, abdominal pain, headaches, nausea, vomiting, breast tenderness and possible blood clot formation. You must have a prescription in order to obtain the morning after pill. It works in 3 ways—it inhibits ovulation, prevents sperm from reaching the egg, and, in fact, it works as an abortion to prevent implantation of the already fertilized egg into the uterus wall. The Morning After Pill is an early abortion, not a contraceptive.

Can Anyone Make Me Have An Abortion?
No. It is against the law for anyone to force you to have an abortion. Not even a husband or parent can require you to undergo an abortion against your will, even if you are a minor (under the age of 18). Our Helpline is happy to discuss your legal rights with you. If you want us to, we will also help you to discuss your pregnancy with those closest to you that are influencing your decision.

Does Abortion Have Any Physical Risks?

  • Yes, abortion has possible risks to your body and your future fertility. Risks include:
  •  Future ectopic pregnancies (a fallopian tube pregnancy)
  •  Pelvic Inflammatory Disease and Infection
  •  Breast Cancer: women who abort face a 50% increase in breast cancer risk.
  •  Tearing of the Uterus
  •  Infertility
  • Future Miscarriages and/or premature deliveries
  •  Damage to the Cervix
  • Hemorrhaging (excessive bleeding)

 

How Else Could Abortion Affect Me?
Many women and men do not really want to end the life of their conceived child; they just want the pain of their situations to go away. Many people express that they wish they could go back and “undo” the abortion, but of course this is not possible. Some common symptoms include guilt, anxiety, depression, emptiness and deep loss, thoughts of suicide, flashbacks, nightmares, eating disorders, drug and alcohol use and abuse to numb their emotional pain.
