There are various types of abortions depending on how far along the pregnancy has developed. Mend provides information on the various abortion procedures.
An ultrasound is needed to determine how far along the pregnancy is and if it is progressing or possibly a miscarriage. An ultrasound can also rule out an ectopic pregnancy which is rare but requires immediate medical attention.
Before having an abortion, it is important to be treated if there is an active STI (Sexually Transmitted Infection.) We can test for the two most common bacterial infections: gonorrhea and chlamydia.
