If you’re considering abortion in Ohio, you’re not alone! The compassionate team at HerChoice is here to help you navigate this stressful time!

Confirm Your Pregnancy

The first step is to confirm your pregnancy. HerChoice provides free pregnancy testing and limited ultrasounds to confirm the viability of your pregnancy. Approximately 25% of pregnancies end in natural miscarriage. Ectopic pregnancies are rare but can be life-threatening. An ultrasound can equip you with important information to help protect your health and possibly avoid an unnecessary abortion procedure.

Be Informed

Next, be informed about the risks and side effects of abortion. Get the unbiased medical information needed to make an informed and empowered decision for your unplanned pregnancy at HerChoice. We’re happy to answer all of your questions!

Some common abortion side effects include

  • Heavy bleeding, which can last up to 16 days
  • Cramping
  • Fatigue
Some women experience more extreme side effects, such as:

  • Headache
  • Chills
  • Fevers
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Allergic reaction to the abortion pill
  • Blood clots or pregnancy tissue remaining in the uterus
  • Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID), which can increase the risk of infertility

Get Tested for STIs

Finally, get tested for STIs. Even if you don’t have any symptoms, an abortion increases your risk for pelvic inflammatory disease. HerChoice provides free STI testing for chlamydia and gonorrhea so you can protect your health.

All of the Facts. None of the Judgment.

Our compassionate team is ready to serve you. Get the facts you need and the care you deserve at HerChoice! Give us a call at 419-354-4673, text us at 419-969-3560, or schedule your appointment online today!
