The best way to know if you are pregnant or not is to take a pregnancy test. There are many brands available in your local drugstore. If the test comes back negative but you think you are pregnant, take another test or visit your gynecologist (GYN) for a blood test.
If the test comes back positive and you decide you want to terminate, gather some information before you call us.
Information to have ready: your last menstrual period, any medications you are currently taking, and any known drug allergies or known medical conditions. Make sure your government-issued picture ID is valid and unexpired.
If you are unsure about the procedure and your pregnancy options, talk to a trusted person or contact a help line on our Counseling page.
The amount of pain varies with each person and their pain tolerance. We do everything we can to provide pain management, including pain medication options for patients using the abortion pill, and options for sedation and pain medication with the surgical procedure included in your fee.
Yes! There is no medical evidence to suggest that having an abortion will affect your ability to get pregnant at a later date, including having multiple abortions. 2+ Abortions has testimonials and information on having multiple abortions.
The ability to use birth control and have sex after an abortion depends on the type of birth control you choose. Our onsite counselors will walk you through your options on the day of your procedure.
There is the potential for protesters outside the clinic. Our clinic offers a secure parking lot with a uniformed guard on duty.

The state of Michigan has a mandatory Informed Consent for Abortion Law. All patients must have a valid 24 hour consent form on appointment day. Anyone can get an abortion in Michigan as long as they have unexpired, valid photo ID and the proper 24 hour consent form paperwork. Before the procedure, all patients will meet privately with a counselor to confirm the patient is consenting to the procedure and that the patient understands the facts of the procedure. Visit our 24 hour consent form page under Patient Information for the required form.
Yes, we provide the morning after pill. Please call our phone counselors at (313) 538-2020 to arrange curbside pickup. The morning after pill is most effective when taken immediately after unprotected sex. The pill can be taken up to 3 days or 72 hours after unprotected sex, but the effectiveness lessens over time. We sell My Choice (levonorgestrel) pills. For more information, see our Morning After Pill page.
