ABORTION FAQS

Has your pregnancy been confirmed?

Even if you’ve had a positive pregnancy test, you will need an ultrasound to confirm the pregnancy, determine how far along you are, and rule out a tubal or ectopic pregnancy. You should also verify your HCG levels before booking an abortion appointment. As many as 1 in 4 pregnancies end in a natural miscarriage, and more than 80% of miscarriages occur in the first three months of pregnancy.

An ultrasound can cost an additional $200-$400 if it’s not covered by insurance. Choices offers limited obstetrical ultrasounds free of charge.

Abortion is not currently legal in the state of Tennessee.

An untreated infection can cause significant complications if not treated before an abortion. At our center, we offer free testing and treatment for three common STIs, gonorrhea, chlamydia, and trichomoniasis. Your safety matters. Know for sure.

We believe an empowered decision is an informed decision. At your first appointment, we provide accurate information on abortion types and procedures and will walk you through all your pregnancy options.
