Planned Parenthood Plan B

I went to Planned Parenthood for Plan B but I when I didn’t get my period the next month, I was concerned that I was pregnant. I don’t have a lot of money because I can only work part-time as I attend school full-time. I searched for clinics that do free pregnancy tests. That’s how I found Support Circle in Redwood City.

I made an appointment and I went to Support Circle. They were very friendly and I felt at ease. I had a pregnancy test that came back positive. I was surprised because I went to Planned Parenthood for Plan B the day after I missed my period. The nurse explained that Plan B should be taken as soon as possible after unprotected sex because it is designed to work before a pregnancy can occur and will not end an existing pregnancy. I misunderstood and took it too late.

I was far enough along to have an ultrasound to verify and date the pregnancy. After the ultrasound, I was very anxious about being pregnant and my ability to carry a baby to term. When the nurse asked if I had any questions, I told her about my eating disorder. I was concerned that I would not be able to provide proper nutrition for a baby.

The Support Circle nurse was very patient and helpful. She explained proper nutrition and hydration and WIC (free Women, Infants and Children nutrition program offered by the government). I think WIC will help me out tremendously. She gave me nutritional brochures to take home and even invited me to call or come back if I need help.  I felt more relaxed and capable of making meal plans throughout the pregnancy.

I am so glad I found Support Circle after I went to Planned Parenthood for Plan B. It was nice to be able to receive the information I need about my body, my pregnancy and nutrition if I decide to carry to term. I would recommend Support Circle in Redwood City to any woman that is pregnant or may be pregnant and needs a pregnancy verification.
