Thinking You Might Be Pregnant?

Thinking you might be pregnant?  You’ve come to the right place. Common symptoms of pregnancy include a late or missed period, tender or swollen breasts, frequent urination, fatigue, and nausea.   A woman might miss her period for many reasons, a change in diet, exercise, or stress, all can cause a late period.  Sometimes, women have late periods for reasons they’re never able to trace. The first step to take to see if you might be pregnant is to take a pregnancy test.  We can provide a test for you if you haven’t already taken one at home.  If your test is positive the next step is to have an ultrasound to determine if the pregnancy is viable and how far along you are.  We offer free ultrasounds to determine viability and gestational age.  An ultrasound is also the only way to determine if you have an ectopic pregnancy, which is a life threatening emergency that requires immediate medical intervention.  We can give you answers. There are bound to be a lot of thoughts swirling around your head.  Those thoughts might change from moment to moment…excitement…anxiety…happiness…anger…  How you are feeling is completely normal and it may change over and over. What is Emergency Contraception? Do I want an abortion? Is parenting right for me? Adoption? Do I have an STI (sexually transmitted infection)? Making a decision might feel impossible at this moment but we are here to help you sort through those thoughts and decisions, to help you figure out what is best for you.  Call us at 207.253.5555 for an appointment.  You are why we are here. #pregnancyresourcecenter  #pregnancyhelp  #ultrasound  #unplannedpregnancy  #abba  #abbaportland  #earnwhileyoulearn  #sti  #freeservices ...
