Considering abortion? If you’re reading this, you may be feeling overwhelmed, scared, or unsure about what to do next. First and foremost, know that you are not alone. Many women face unplanned pregnancies and have similar thoughts and feelings. Need answers now? Chat anonymously with a nurse for free, call or text us at (760) 374-8786.

This blog aims to guide you through some important steps you can take, offering you support and information as you navigate this challenging time.


How Do I Make Sure I'm Pregnant?

Before making any decisions, it’s critical to confirm whether you are actually pregnant. Home pregnancy tests are a good starting point, but they are not always accurate.

To make sure you're pregnant, consider visiting a healthcare provider or a local pregnancy center where you can receive a free, reliable pregnancy test. Knowing for sure can help you make informed decisions about your next steps.


When Did I Conceive?

Understanding when you might have conceived can give you clarity about your pregnancy timeline. Conception typically occurs about two weeks after the start of your last menstrual period. If you’re unsure about your dates, an ultrasound can help determine how far along you are. Schedule a free ultrasound by clicking this link.


Is Abortion Legal In California?

Abortion laws vary widely by location, with some places allowing it and others heavily restricting or banning it. In California, abortion is legal. Contact one of our care experts for anonymous support and more information about the specifics of the law.


Where Can I Go To Get  Free Support And Services?

Facing an unplanned pregnancy can feel isolating, but there are many resources available to support you. Birth Choice Medical Clinic offers a range of free services, including pregnancy testing, ultrasounds, and confidential counseling.


At Birth Choice, we provide a non-judgmental environment where you can receive information and support.


Understanding Your Options

While abortion might seem like your only option, it’s important to take the time to consider all possibilities.

Parenting and adoption are also viable paths, each with its own set of challenges and rewards. In addition, it’s important to understand the potential for post-abortion pain, complications, and the emotional effects of having an abortion.

Some feel relief shortly after but may experience sadness, grief, or guilt long-term. Speaking with an Advocate or someone who has been in your shoes can provide valuable perspective. Request a free, confidential appointment.


Emotional And Physical Well-Being

Your well-being is paramount. Pregnancy, whether planned or unplanned, brings a whirlwind of emotions. It's normal to feel confused, scared, or even angry. Seeking emotional support from trusted friends, family, or professionals can make a significant difference. Our confidential services can help you navigate these emotions and ensure you have the support you need.


Abortion Education & Support

If you’re considering an abortion, it’s important to gather all the information and support available to you.

Local pregnancy centers offer a safe, confidential, and compassionate space for you to explore your options and make an informed decision. They can provide pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, and advocacy services to help you fully understand your situation.
