Abortion Risks Gainesville, FL
Finding yourself unexpectedly pregnant can be overwhelming, confusing and scary. This is not what you had planned for your life right now. Many women feel that abortion is their only option given their current life circumstances. We are here to discuss your options and learn more about each path.
A Woman’s Answer is available to answer any questions you may have about pregnancy, abortion, sexual health or adoption, providing you with medically accurate and up-to-date information. Most importantly, we are here to listen to any and all of your concerns in a confidential environment. Here are some important risks to consider:
- Damage to the womb or cervix
- Uterine perforation
- Bowel injury
- Excessive bleeding
- Blood clots
- Infection of uterus/fallopian tube
- Scaring within the uterus
- Reaction to medications
- Retained product of conception
- Abdominal pain/cramping
- Anniversary grief
- Relationship problems
- Eating disorders
- Alcohol & drug abuse
- Suicidal behaviors
- Post tramatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Things to Consider
- Am I Really Pregnant? And if so, is my pregnancy viable (living)? Is there a heartbeat? Am I at risk for a natural miscarriage?
- Do you know what the laws in Florida are regarding abortion?
AWA offers free pregnancy tests to confirm your pregnancy. If you are pregnant, we will offer you a free ultrasound to confirm pregnancy. You may be unaware that 20% of women experience natural miscarriage in the first trimester1 (first 12 weeks) of pregnancy, so an ultrasound is the first step prior to scheduling any medical procedure. Your risks can be best assessed through an ultrasound once your pregnancy has been confirmed.
*A Woman’s Answer (AWA) does not perform or refer for abortions.
