No, you may come in alone. Even though you are a minor, you have the right to confidential help, except in those cases where mandatory reporting applies, such as suicide risk. We can’t provide your records to any person without written authorization from you.
Approximately 1 in 5 of all pregnancies end naturally. Pregnancies that end naturally are not viable and result in what are called miscarriages. A good way to determine if a pregnancy is viable is through an ultrasound. We provide an ultrasound after a positive pregnancy test at no cost to you.
The hormones in your body that result in a positive pregnancy test can’t be detected until 9 to 11 days after fertilization. Please wait until after that period of time then call and we’ll be happy to set an appointment for a pregnancy test.
First, to protect your confidentiality, you’ll need to bring your valid photo ID. A driver’s license or student ID will work. You will fill out an intake form, but no insurance is required and all services are offered at no cost to you.
Any and all information shared with us will be kept in the strictest confidence except as required by law or as required for the protection of yourself or others. You don’t have to worry if your family or friends will find out. We’ll do everything we can to protect your privacy.
The process of recovering from an abortion is different for everyone. We offer support groups for women who have terminated one or more pregnancies, whether it was a recent abortion or many years ago. You can receive help in a confidential group setting with trained post-abortive facilitators.
Condoms reduce the chance of infection with STIs that are spread through fluids. STIs that are spread through skin to skin contact, like Herpes, can still be transmitted if the affected area is left uncovered.
Cumming Women’s Center does not perform nor refer for abortion. We do, however, provide pregnancy options education. Options education, pregnancy testing, and ultrasound are offered at no cost to you. Click here for an appointment.
