Abortion Information Des Moines, Iowa

Am I really pregnant?

The stress of life and relationships can make you think you might be pregnant when you are not. Initial pregnancy tests are not 100% accurate and should always be confirmed by an ultrasound. The scan is completely painless and you will only need to lift your shirt slightly to expose your belly. During the scan, you will be able to see if a baby is growing and how big he or she is. We offer free ultrasounds following your first pregnancy appointment.

Are there any risks to my health?

To make an informed decision, you must know the risks of any medical procedure you choose to have. Do not assume that an abortion procedure is safe without first investigating the side effects and complications of each option.

Do I have any other options?

Abortion often sounds like the simple solution, but the promises it makes can be too good to be true. Many women choose to be a mother and find that it is the most fulfilling decision they have ever made. Other women decide they are not ready to be a mother, but want to make an adoption plan so that someone else can be.

Can I change my mind?

There are some decisions that are final. Once an abortion occurs, there is no turning back the clock. Appointments to get an abortion can be cancelled though. The decision you are making is a life-changing one – do not allow the pressure of an appointment or the opinions of others dictate how you live your life.

What if something goes wrong?

If the abortion procedure goes wrong, what will the abortion provider do? You deserve to know whether they have admitting privileges to a hospital and what follow-up care they can provide. Visit Agape to get all your questions answered without being charged, rushed, or judged.

What if I think I have an STD?

Sexually Transmitted Diseases can complicate abortion procedures and cause damage to your internal organs. If you believe you have an STD, get tested here at AGAPE and learn the risks and treatment options. 

What do I value?

Abortion is much more than a one-time choice. Before you undergo an abortive procedure, consider how you may feel a year from now, or even 10 years from now if you decide to proceed down this path. Ask yourself – What do I value?
