Abortion

Procedures
During your visit at Resource Health, we will talk through each type of abortion and make sure you have all the information you need before making your decision. 

There are several types of abortion options. The abortion pill, also known as RU-486, medical abortion pill or the Plan C pill, is available for use up to 70 days after the last menstrual period. All other types of abortion are surgical. The first type is aspiration or suction and it is available up to 13 weeks after the last menstrual period. The second type is called dilation and evacuation, also known as an D&E, is available from 13 weeks after the first menstrual period.

Costs
There are several factors that determine the cost of an abortion. Some of those factors are length of pregnancy, geographic region, medication needed and procedure type.

Be aware that some abortion service organizations do benefit financially from your decision. Be sure to educate yourself on the specific organization as you engage their services. Resource Health exists only to serve you and does not financially profit from any choice you make. Resource Health does not perform or refer for abortions.

Risks
Every medical procedure, including abortion, carries the risk of complications and side effects. You have the right to know the risks of each abortion procedure before making a choice and informed consent. Know what your legal rights are and the expectations on the abortion provider to give follow up care, should complications arise.

Adoption

Regardless of the parenting option you choose, investigating adoption is a responsible and empowered decision. You can take the time you need before making your decision to explore adoption and the different types offered to you. Resource Health will arrange consultations with a licensed adoption agency to talk through the different options available to you. Again, all Resource Health services are offered to you at no charge.

Sexually Transmitted Diseases

Resource Health Services now offers Sexually Transmitted Disease Testing and Treatment. All STD services are administrated by a licensed medical professional. Resource Health offers testing and treatment regardless of sex, pregnancy status, sexual orientation or age.

Getting tested for Sexually Transmitted Diseases is crucial for your health whether you are pregnant or not. Untreated sexually transmitted diseases and infections can create elevated risk for infections through pregnancy or an abortion procedure.

Whether oral, vaginal, or anal—there is always a risk for sexually transmitted diseases or sexually transmitted infections with sexual activity.

Sexually transmitted diseases and infections can be caused by viruses, bacteria and parasites, and some have little to no symptoms. Some diseases may last a lifetime or prove life-threatening.

If you are sexually active, getting tested and treated is important to avoid potential long-term harm to yourself and the risk of spreading them to others.

Most people who have an STD experience no noticeable symptoms or may not recognize the symptoms for what they are. You can be infected or infect someone else without even knowing it. It is extremely important that you are properly diagnosed and treated promptly.

Many who have chlamydia don’t develop symptoms, but they can still infect others through sexual contact. Symptoms may include genital pain and discharge from the vagina or penis.

Symptoms for Gonorrhea include painful urination and abnormal discharge from the penis or vagina. Men may experience testicular pain and women may experience pain in the lower belly. In some cases, Gonorrhea has no symptoms.

Chlamydia and gonorrhea are both extremely common. In 2018, chlamydia had a rate of 539.9 cases per 100,000 people in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Gonorrhea had a rate of 179 cases per 100,000 people.

More than 1 million sexually transmitted infections (STIs) are acquired every day worldwide (1, 2). Each year, there are an estimated 376 million new infections with 1 of 4 STIs: chlamydia, gonorrhoea, syphilis and trichomoniasis (1, 2).
