If you’re seeking an abortion in Tampa, you may feel as though you’ve already thought through your options and made up your mind. However, even if you’ve made your decision, it can be helpful to process your thoughts with a medical professional at our clinic. We are a leader in women’s healthcare. We have helped hundreds of women just like you. Slow down, breathe and consider the following:
Do you know if you have an STI/STD?
Many STI’s do not present with symptoms. This is especially true for women. Some STDs or STIs can cause pregnancy complications during childbirth. An untreated sexually transmitted infection can also lead to potential health problems if you have a surgical abortion. This type of abortion can force the bacteria causing your STI through your cervix and into your uterus, potentially leading to pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), which can cause infertility, or even increasing your risk of cervical, uterine, or ovarian cancer.¹ A Woman’s Place Medical Clinic offers confidential STD testing. Abortion providers may or may not test you before the procedure, potentially risking your health in the process.
Will the abortions be covered by Health Insurance?
Because abortion is a provocative topic, many health insurance policies don’t provide coverage for this procedure. Often, it can be hard to figure out exactly what is and isn’t covered, even after contacting your insurance company and specifically requesting this information. As a result, some women may find themselves facing a hefty medical bill during one of the most stressful times of their life.
Are you prepared to deal with after affects?
One of the most common responses we hear patients say after seeking an abortion is “no one told me I was going to feel like this.” Abortion can affect your body, mind and spirit in different ways for different women. This is especially true with women who have taken the abortion pill. Make an appointment today to talk to one of our medical professionals or experienced staff to get all of the facts.
We can provide at no charge the following services:
- A lab-quality pregnancy test to ensure you are actually pregnant
- An ultrasound to check to see whether you are at risk for a miscarriage
- STI testing to ensure you’re not suffering from any conditions that could complicate your reproductive future
We offer hope and alternative choices for women’s health and wellbeing in a safe, supportive and professional environment. Our compassionate staff can help walk you through your decision without judgement to make sure you’re fully aware of abortion facts and alternatives.
