PRE ABORTION SCREENING
Prior to an abortion appointment, it is strongly recommended that you:
1. Confirm you’re pregnant. Abella offers lab-quality pregnancy tests. You will receive the test results at your appointment.
2. Make sure your pregnancy is viable. Abella offers no-cost limited obstetric ultrasounds which can confirm the viability of your pregnancy. Up to 10% – 25% of early pregnancies may end in miscarriage1. Avoid unnecessary costs and potentially high-risk and/or painful procedures that you may not need.
3. Get tested and treated for STI/STDs. You could be at-risk for serious complications if you have an active STI/STD during an abortion procedure
4. Get your STI/STD testing and treatment done first. Abella can help you with this.
