My name is Melinda Johnson and I suffered with foot pain for many years. I went to see a podiatrist and after an examination, I was told that I had heel spur syndrome. I followed the recommendations of my doctor by doing at home treatments along with physical therapy. I was amazed at how much these treatments helped my foot pain. Living with pain can have a big impact on your life and that's why I started this blog. My foot pain kept me from doing many things that I enjoy and I want to help others who are going through the same situation. As you browse through my blog, you'll learn about home treatments, medical procedures and new advancements in medicine that can help reduce pain. It is my hope that by writing this blog, you can live pain free too.
If you are considering having an abortion, you may be wondering what to expect when it comes time to visit an abortion clinic. Here is a general idea of what you can expect to experience during your visit to an abortion clinic.
An Initial Consultation
Most abortion clinics have their patients consult with an abortion specialist or therapist before deciding whether to go through with an abortion. This consultation is to ensure that you understand other options available to you and to make sure that you understand how having an abortion may affect you emotionally and mentally as time goes on.
You will have an opportunity to have all your questions and concerns addressed, so it's a good idea to make a list of questions to ask before your consultation to make sure that you don't forget to address anything of importance to you. After your consultant is sure that you are ready for the procedure, you will have to make a final decision as to whether you want to go ahead with an abortion.
Understanding Your Options
After consulting with a specialist, you will start working with your doctor to understand the abortion options that are available to you based on things like how far along you are, your health status, and your preferences. If you are not too far along, you may be able to take a pill instead of having an in-house abortion. This option may only be available during the first few weeks of pregnancy depending on your state's laws.
If you choose not to take the pill route or the option is not available to you, the other option is an in-house abortion. The exact techniques and steps to be taken will be outlined by your service provider so that you know exactly what to expect during the process.
Making a Plan
Before the abortion takes place, your service provider will help you create a plan so that the experience is the least stressful and inconvenient as possible. They will let you know the steps you can take to prepare for your procedure and provide you with tips and tricks that can be used to recover after the procedure takes place. They may even recommend specific counseling services to help you work through any emotions that come up before, during, or after the abortion process.
