I missed my Planned Parenthood Appointment

After I missed my Planned Parenthood appointment, I started looking for somewhere else to get the abortion pill. The last time I got the abortion pill, they said they had to do a pregnancy verification first. Support Circle does free pregnancy verifications so I was glad I could at least get that part of the process taken care of.

The Support Circle clinic is in a medical office building close to where I work so I made an appointment to go in on my lunch hour. Once I arrived, I explained that I had missed my Planned Parenthood appointment and needed a pregnancy verification. The staff was friendly and professional and made me feel welcomed. It is a smaller clinic than where I had my last Planned Parenthood appointment and that made it feel more relaxing and comfortable.

The nurse knew I wanted an abortion so when she did the ultrasound, she was considerate and asked whether I wanted to see the screen or not. At first, I didn’t want to but then I was curious, so I asked her to please show me.

I was so thankful to be offered a free ultrasound at Support Circle. I don’t know if I will still go through with having an abortion. I have been talking to the patient advocate at Support Circle about my conflicting emotions. She really listens to me and that helps. I made a new Planned Parenthood appointment for an abortion but I’m not sure what I will do. Either way, I’m glad I will have my Support Circle patient advocate to talk to. If you are pregnant and need a free pregnancy verification or someone to talk to, like I did, I would recommend Support Circle as the place to go first.

I went to Planned Parenthood by mistake

I was late to my Support Circle appointment because we went to Planned Parenthood by mistake. Fortunately, a lady at Planned Parenthood realized we were looking for Support Circle because Support Circle has free ultrasounds.

When my boyfriend, Mateo, and I finally got to Support Circle, I felt a bit flustered and out of sorts. The staff was so friendly and non-judgmental that they made me feel at ease right away. I don’t like to be late. I was extra emotional by the time I got there because Mateo got so angry when we went to Planned Parenthood instead of Support Circle

Mateo is really happy and wants me to keep the baby. I don’t know. I’m undecided. Right now, things are good with Mateo but sometimes he can be controlling and when he gets angry, it scares me. I don’t think I want that around our baby. But sometimes he can be so loving, like when we saw our baby on the ultrasound. Mateo was so excited when he saw the baby move on the monitor. It made me think that maybe I should have this baby.

I don’t know what I want to do with this pregnancy. I still have some time to get an abortion – not much time, but I have a couple of days to finally decide. I am thankful to Support Circle for the free ultrasound to see our baby’s development because we couldn’t afford to pay for one at Planned Parenthood.

Abortion Clinics Near Me

I found Support Circle when I was looking for abortion clinics near me. My husband and I just moved to San Francisco a week ago. We don’t have medical insurance here yet but I needed to know if I was pregnant for sure. Support Circle gives free pregnancy verifications so that’s why I chose them.

I took a home pregnancy test that said I was pregnant. I didn’t have any pregnancy symptoms so I thought that maybe the pregnancy wasn’t viable. One of my friends had an ectopic pregnancy so I was scared that I did too. I didn’t know how things work in America without medical insurance and thought if I found abortion clinics near me, they would be able to take care of an ectopic pregnancy.

The staff at Support Circle were informative and supportive. When the nurse did the free ultrasound, she showed me the baby was in my uterus, where it should be. She kindly explained that if I did have an ectopic pregnancy, I would have had to go to the emergency room, not to abortion clinics near me. I was surprised at how relieved I was that everything was healthy and fine. When I met with the patient advocate, she helped me to process the new set of emotions I was feeling. She also explained my options and how things work in America.

When I searched for abortion clinics near me, I didn’t think I was really pregnant. I am so thankful for Support Circle’s free ultrasound and the information I received that helped me to make an informed decision about my pregnancy.

I had an abortion at the Planned Parenthood Near Me

A few years ago, I had an abortion at the Planned Parenthood near me. I was at San Francisco State University and could not see how I could support a baby and finish my degree. I found Support Circle then and they were very supportive and helpful. I went through with my decision to have an abortion.

Now, I am out of college and in my mid-twenties. Things are so different from back then. When I missed my period, I told my boyfriend, DeShaun. He was shocked but happy. DeShaun came with me to Support Circle when I went back for the pregnancy ultrasound. We decided to go to Support Circle because their ultrasounds are free. The Planned Parenthood near me charges for an ultrasound.

It was so amazing to see our baby on the screen. It’s so tiny but we could see the head and the heartbeat. All healthy. I was smiling and DeShaun was smiling. I had been so worried that something would be wrong with it since my previous abortion.

This pregnancy was unplanned but we are excited to meet our baby. I am thankful to Support Circle for being here to show me my baby at no cost when an ultrasound at the Planned Parenthood near me was more than we could afford.

I learned I was pregnant at Planned Parenthood San Mateo

“You’re pregnant.” I was sitting on the exam table at Planned Parenthood San Mateo when I heard those words spoken to me. I was in shock. Maybe the lady was telling me about my medical options or next steps, I don’t know. I couldn’t hear anything else after those words.

I grew up in a small, tight-knit farming community outside of the Bay Area. Moving to Redwood City to attend Stanford was a big deal in my family and our town. I was scared to tell my parents I was pregnant because, up to that point, they had been so proud of me. The last thing I wanted to do was to disappoint my parents.

I decided I should have a better understanding of what my options were before talking to my parents. Because I was in such a state of shock when I was at Planned Parenthood, I hadn’t heard what the lady there was telling me. My roommate suggested I go to Support Circle in Redwood City because it was nearby, in the same medical building where she worked part-time.

The Support Circle staff were very helpful and took the time to ensure I understand my options. I learned a lot and felt better equipped to make a decision. After talking to the lady at Support Circle, I had hope for the first time since learning I was pregnant. If you are pregnant and need information about your options, I recommend Support Circle. You can call or text for an appointment.

I had pregnancies terminated at Planned Parenthood

I had previous pregnancies terminated at Planned Parenthood. I really wanted to keep those babies but I was only 16 and 17 years old. I had no support from my family. It was an abusive home and I didn’t want to bring a child home into that situation. I figured it would be better to have an abortion.

This time, I had been in a relationship for several years. When we met, I didn’t know he was married. By the time I found out, I was in love and pregnant. He told me he was in the process of getting a divorce and a baby would mess with his alimony payments. He asked me to have an abortion and offered to go to Planned Parenthood with me. I found out he had been trying to work things out with his wife the whole time. I finally saw him for who he really was and ended the relationship.

I came to Support Circle to get a free ultrasound to date my pregnancy. The Planned Parenthood people were nice, but their services cost money. Things are different this time. I’m 37 years old, I am employed and have a supportive system around me. And I have Support Circle. My Patient Advocate, Claudia, was very helpful. She asked about me and what do I want? After talking to Claudia, I feel stronger and I am determined to make my own decision about what I want to do with this baby.

If, like me, you find yourself pregnant and are considering getting an abortion at Planned Parenthood, give Support Circle a try first. The Support Circle team is friendly and they don’t judge. And, all of Support Circle’s services are free! Call or text today.

My search for the morning after pill near me took me to Support Circle

I found Support Circle when I was searching for the morning after pill near me. I didn’t realize that I actually should have been looking for the abortion pill.

I called Support Circle because their services are free and close by. It was during the phone call that I learned the morning after pill is different than the abortion pill. I ended up going in to the Support Circle clinic because I needed to have a pregnancy test to confirm if I was already pregnant.

When I got to Support Circle, everyone was friendly and kind. I quickly forgot how dumb I felt for not knowing the difference between the morning after pill and the abortion pill. They explained how it is very common to mix the two up. They explained that the morning after pill is taken within hours of unprotected sex to stop a pregnancy from ever happening. But the abortion pill is taken after a pregnancy has already started.

When my pregnancy test came back positive, I then had to have an ultrasound to tell me how far along I was. Because I was 11 weeks pregnant, I couldn’t even use the abortion pill. The Support Circle staff gave me information to help me make my decision. Then they asked me something I did not expect – what did I want to do?

I started crying because not even my best friend had asked what I wanted to do. Everyone assumed I wanted to have an abortion. Even I assumed that would be what I should do. I had not stopped to think about what I wanted.

I’m glad I found Support Circle when I was searching for the morning after pill near me. They cleared up some of my misunderstandings and they gave me the encouragement and support I needed to make an informed decision. If you are pregnant, Support Circle is the best place to go!

Getting an Abortion Near Me

When I missed my period, I began to search for how to get an abortion near me. That was when I found Support Circle. I was in college and studying for my finals when I realized my period was late. At first, I thought my period was coming because my breasts were tender. But when it didn’t come, I took a home pregnancy test after my last exam. The test was positive.

I was devastated. I felt completely alone and lost. The relationship with my boyfriend had not ended on good terms at all. I was entering my junior year at UC Berkeley. My parents sacrificed a lot to be able to send me to college in America. Dropping out of college to have a baby felt like I was being so disrespectful to my family and all of their hard work. I didn’t want to think about how disappointed I was in myself. All I wanted to do was to find somewhere to have an abortion near me.

The Support Circle clinic is in a medical building so I felt less anxious about going inside. Once I was there, the staff was friendly and made me feel very comfortable. They did a pregnancy test and it was positive. When the nurse did the ultrasound, she couldn’t find the baby where it should have been. Finally, she found it in one of my fallopian tubes. The nurse explained what an ectopic pregnancy is and why it was important for me to go to the hospital ER right away.

About a week after I went to the ER to end the ectopic pregnancy, I went back to Support Circle to thank the nurse for saving my life. I was able to sit down with a patient advocate at Support Circle to talk about my feelings. Even though I didn’t want the pregnancy, losing the baby caused a lot of emotions I wasn’t expecting. It was good to have someone to talk to that I could trust.

I was looking for an abortion near me but I’m glad I found Support Circle instead. The nurse found my ectopic pregnancy early and now I can get the emotional support I need to deal.

I needed an abortion clinic in San Francisco

I stumbled across Support Circle when I was searching for an abortion clinic in San Francisco. My boyfriend and I had been arguing for months. We would argue and make up, argue and make up. It was a toxic cycle that I wanted no part of anymore. Shortly after we broke up for good, I realized it had been awhile since my last period.

Since I work downtown, I wanted an abortion clinic in San Francisco that was nearby. I was concerned that I was 9-10 weeks along so I needed my pregnancy verification and dating right away. Support Circle could fit me in that day so I hurried over. Their staff were professional, supportive and made me feel comfortable. That first visit was rushed because of my limited time that day. I went back another day, and talked more with the patient advocate. She allowed me to talk while she listened.

Going to Support Circle helped me to make an informed decision about my pregnancy. I would tell any looking for an abortion clinic in San Francisco to go to Support Circle for her pregnancy verification. I was glad I could text to schedule my appointment.
