First things first: Your mental health depends on you making your own pregnancy decision.

According to a study looking into the link between abortion and adverse mental health outcomes, it’s clear “that at least some women do have significant mental health issues that are caused, triggered, aggravated, or complicated by their abortion experience.” 

Furthermore, feeling pressured into an abortion is one of the risk factors for experiencing a mental health issue after an abortion.

This is why it’s critical to ensure that you’re making your own pregnancy decision, free from the pressures of others. This article will highlight strategies you can take for making your own decision. However, if you want to talk to someone in person about abortion and your other options, contact Choose Hope Women’s Center today to schedule a free, confidential appointment. 

Learn About All Your Pregnancy Options

Learning all you can about your pregnancy options will help ensure you’re making a fully informed decision for yourself. Your pregnancy options include parenting, adoption, and abortion

Making sure all your questions are answered is also important. Some questions to think about include:

  • Do I know the physical and mental health risks of abortion?
  • What might my life look like if I chose abortion? Adoption? Parenting?
  • How might I feel after each choice? 
  • What questions do I still have?

At Choose Hope Women’s Center, we offer free, confidential appointments that will give you medically accurate information about all your options and the space to ask questions. 

Know Your Pregnancy Details to Protect Your Health

No matter what choice you’re thinking about for your pregnancy, knowing certain information will help protect your health.

The pregnancy details you need to know include:

  • Gestational age: Your pregnancy’s gestational age will determine what options are available. For example, medical abortion (also known as the “abortion pill”) is only FDA-approved if your pregnancy is 10 weeks gestation or under.
  • Location: Rarely, a pregnancy develops outside the uterus. This is known as an ectopic pregnancy, and it’s a life-threatening situation that requires emergency medical treatment. 
  • Viability: Roughly 26% of all pregnancies end in miscarriage, and it’s possible to experience one without immediate symptoms. If you’ve had a miscarriage, you will need medical follow-up to ensure you don’t face complications.

The only reliable way to know these details about your pregnancy is by getting an ultrasound scan. 

At Choose Hope Women’s Center, we offer free ultrasounds to give you the information you need to stay safe—no matter what pregnancy decision you choose.
