Abortion in Savannah

There is a lot of misinformation out there on abortion. Thrive Express Savannah provides a free and confidential pre-abortion screening appointment for women who are considering an abortion, have scheduled an abortion, or have ordered the abortion pills by mail. A screening appointment includes:

1. Medical verification of your pregnancy. A lab-quality urine pregnancy test performed by a licensed medical professional. Our urine pregnancy test is 99% accurate and the results are available at your appointment.

2. Ultrasound to determine the stage and location of your pregnancy. The ultrasound may be performed on the same date as the pregnancy test or scheduled for a later date. ThriVe offers limited obstetric ultrasounds to confirm the estimated stage and health of your pregnancy. Because many pregnancies may end in miscarriage, we don’t want you to have a

procedure that you may not need. We can talk with you about recommendations if we find that you might have a condition that requires special attention, like an ectopic pregnancy. Since over 50% of women are off on their estimated stage of pregnancy, it is important to get an ultrasound to confirm how far along you are, and make sure you are not further along than expected to reduce possible complications for you.

3. STI/STD testing and treatment. Many STIs/STDs do not have obvious symptoms. If you have an active STI/STD at the time of a procedure, you could be at risk for serious health conditions that can affect your future. It’s essential to get tested first, and we can do that for you!

4. Consultation with a licensed nurse and trained advocate to discuss abortion procedures/risks, discuss a potential emergency plan, possible side effects, available community resources and address any questions you may have.

We understand that this can be a stressful situation. ThriVe acts as a neutral party, offering confidential information and screening services so that you can make your best choice.
