A Woman’s Haven
Pregnancy can be a very emotional time in your life. Many women want to have children. And they want to have children when they are ready and best able to care for them
If your pregnancy is unexpected, you may be feeling scared or confused about what to do. It is important to remember that you have options. But first, you need to make sure that you’re pregnant.
If you are pregnant, you have three options to think about — abortion, adoption, and parenting. Reading and learning about each one will help you get the facts and may help you decide
It may also help to weigh the benefits and risks of each one. Think about which benefits and risks are most important to you. Only you can decide what is right for you.
Women often find it helpful to talk it through with someone else. You may choose to talk with your partner or a trusted family member or friend. Pick someone you think will be supportive.
In this stage A Woman’s Haven can guide you for taking any further step.
A medical abortion involves taking a prescription medicine called “Mifepristone” which is also called the “abortion pill”. The pill is used to end an early pregnancy.
It works by blocking progesterone, the hormone that builds up the lining of a women’s uterus during pregnancy. Without progesterone, the lining of the uterus is unable to hold a pregnancy.
As the lining of the uterus breaks down, bleeding occurs. The abortion pill can only be used up to 49 days after the first day of the last period (or 9 weeks). It’s about 97% effective.
A surgical abortion is a procedure that terminates a pregnancy, which is typically performed up to 16 weeks after the pregnant woman’s last period.
A doctor or advanced practice nurse usually performs the procedure in an out-patient office or clinic, or hospital.
For teens, this is usually a parent or other relative; sometimes a counsellor, nurse or your primary care provider is the first person you talk to when you find out about the pregnancy.
Many clinics offer free counselling if you have a positive pregnancy test.
In this important stage A Woman’s Haven can guide you to take right step for you future.
