Before taking the Morning-After Pill, you should understand what it is, what it could mean to your health and how it works. Call for an appointment and one of our staff will be happy to discuss it with you, confirm if you’re pregnant and advise you on your options.

What is it?

The Morning after Pill is a large dose of levonorgestrel, commonly used as an oral contraceptive. Plan B One-Step is taken as a single dose tablet with 72 hours of unprotected sexual intercourse. A generic two-dose form of this medication can also be prescribed.

How does it work?

Plan B is believed to act as an emergency contraceptive principally by preventing ovulation or fertilization. In addition, it may inhibit implantation. It is not effective once the process of implantation has begun.

Things to Consider

• Emergency contraception is not effective if a woman is already pregnant.
• Plan B does not protect against HIV infection (AIDS) and other sexually transmitted diseases.
• The most common side effects in the Plan B clinical trial were nausea, abdominal pain, fatigue, headache, and menstrual changes.
• The manufacturer warns that Plan B is not recommended for routine use as a contraceptive.

Before taking RU486, or Abortion Pill, you should understand what it is, what it could mean to your health and how it works. Call for an appointment and one of our staff will be happy to discuss it with you, confirm if you’re pregnant and advise you on your options.

What is it?

A Medical Abortion is actually a combination of two drugs – mifepristone and misoprostol – that cause an early abortion. These drugs are approved for use in women up to 70 days (10 weeks) from their last menstrual periods. The farther along you are the less effective it is.

How does it work?

The first pill, mifepristone, is taken orally and blocks the hormone progesterone needed to maintain the pregnancy. The second pill, misoprostol, is taken up to 3 days after taking the first abortion pill.  This second pill will cause you to have cramps and to bleed.

Things to Consider

  • Most medical abortions using mifepristone are completed within 2 weeks, but some can take up to 3 or even 4 weeks.
  • Side effects include heavy bleeding, headache, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and cramping.
  • If this method fails, a surgical abortion will be required.

Many women experience a sense of grief or loss following an abortion. Women have reported depression, psychological numbing, anxiety, nightmares, and feelings of hopelessness. Others report self-destructive behaviors, such as eating disorders, alcohol or substance abuse, abusive relationships, and promiscuity. 

If you or someone you know is experiencing any of these symptoms, please call and we will connect with one of our Abortion Recovery facilitators. They’ve been where you are and want to help.

You have lots of choices with adoption. Will it be open or closed? Will it be private or will you use an agency? You are in the driver’s seat when making an adoption plan and adoption is something to consider if you:

  • Don’t want an abortion and aren’t ready to be a parent
  • Want to provide your child with a 2-parent family
  • Want to provide your child with emotional and financial stability

In today’s adoptions, you can know your child and be a part of your child’s life. You can have the peace of knowing your child is loved and cared for by the couple you choose.

Assure Pregnancy Clinic does not facilitate adoptions, but we are able to provide you with referrals to organizations that we trust. We can help you understand your options with adoption.

Pregnancy is not the only thing to be concerned about after having sex. STDs (sexually transmitted diseases) and STIs (sexually transmitted infections) are common. Some can be cured. Some cannot. Many have lifelong effects.

HPV (human papillomavirus) is the primary cause of cervical cancer. At least 50 percent of sexually active men and women aquire a genital HPV infection at some point in their lives. There are more than 100 types of HPV. Most HPV infections have no signs or symptoms; therefore, most infected people are unaware they are infected, yet they can transmit the virus to a sex partner.

Chlamydia is the most frequently reported bacterial sexually transmitted disease in the United States. Any sexually active person can be infected with Chlamydia. The greater the number of sex partners, the greater the risk of infection. Because the cervix of teenage girls and young women is not fully matured, they are at particularly high risk for infection.

In women, symptoms of Gonorrhea are often mild, but most women who are infected have no symptoms. Even when a woman has symptoms, they can be mistaken for a bladder or vaginal infection. Untreated Gonorrhea can cause serious and permanent health problems.

There are still over 1 million people living with HIV in the United States. About one-fourth of those have not yet been diagnosed and are unaware of their infection.

Sex is a big deal. Know the facts. Make informed decisions. Respect yourself.

Abortion Pill Reversal may be an option, after the first dose of the abortion pill, mifepristone, is taken. You should understand what Abortion Pill Reversal is, what it could mean to your health, and how it works. Call for an appointment and one of our staff will be happy to discuss it with you and advise you on your options.

What is it?

  • Abortion Pill Reversal uses the hormone progesterone to reverse the effect of the first abortion pill, mifepristone. Treatment is most effective within 24 hours of taking the abortion pill, mifepristone, however, successful reversals have been experienced when treatment was started within 72 hours.

How does it work?

  • A medical abortion is the combination of two drugs. The first pill, mifepristone, blocks the hormone progesterone. Increased amounts of progesterone are given to offset the effects of mifepristone and provide the progesterone that is needed to maintain pregnancy. Studies show that Abortion Pill Reversals are successful and safe. There is no apparent increased risk of birth defects.
