If you recently found out your girlfriend is pregnant, you may be talking about getting an abortion. Most insurance plans won’t cover her if she’s your girlfriend and not your wife. So what’s your next step?

Before Scheduling An Abortion

Even if she’s taken an at-home pregnancy test that turned out positive, you still need more information. Have her test results confirmed with free lab-quality pregnancy testing at Ridgeway Women’s Clinic.

We will provide a free limited obstetrical ultrasound if her test is positive. An ultrasound verifies

how long she’s been pregnant and if the pregnancy is growing or she’s had a miscarriage. You’ll also find out where the pregnancy is located. If it’s implanted outside the uterus, it can be potentially life-threatening.

How long she’s been pregnant determines the abortion method used. We can get that information and review abortion procedures, side effects, and potential risks. 

The Cost Of Abortion

Abortion costs with no insurance coverage are expensive. The costs vary based on where you live (states offer different services and prices), how far along the pregnancy is, and what abortion provider you use.

According to an analysis of U.S. abortion costs, the average price of a medication abortion (the abortion pill) is around $535. The average price for a surgical first-trimester abortion is $505 and 

a second-trimester abortion can cost up to $3,000. 

It’s important to consider other costs as well: Time taken off work (including recovery time), and any potential emotional consequences your girlfriend may need treatment for after an abortion.
