My Birth Control Failed: What Do I Do?

My birth control failed: What do I do?

Did your birth control fail, and you’re not sure what to do next? All the questions that rush into your mind after seeing a positive pregnancy test can seem like a lot.

We’re here to help you every step of the way, starting with pregnancy confirmation.

Start with Pregnancy Testing

Every woman’s pregnancy experience is unique, but a common pregnancy sign is a missed period. A missed period could also result from an irregular cycle, weight changes, other health conditions, etc.

If you think you’re pregnant, other common symptoms to look out for include:

  • Tender, swollen breasts
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea (with or without vomiting)
  • Frequent urination
  • Food aversions
  • Cramping
  • Bloating
  • Moodiness

Confirm your pregnancy with free pregnancy testing at A Choice for Women. If you receive a positive result, we can help you understand the results and determine your next steps.

Receive an Ultrasound

A positive pregnancy test cannot tell you everything about your pregnancy. If you receive a positive pregnancy test result with our team, we will also offer a free limited ultrasound.

An ultrasound confirms essential details of your pregnancy, including viability (if there is a heartbeat and your pregnancy is progressing), the location of your pregnancy (whether it’s growing within your uterus), and how far along you are (gestational age).

These are all vital details to understand to protect your health before making a pregnancy decision.

Free Options Education

Are you feeling pressure to choose an option due to your partner, family, or friends? Know that the final pregnancy decision is yours to make. We are here to inform you about all of your pregnancy options so you can make an informed decision for your future.

Judgment-Free Support

Our commitment at A Choice for Women is to create a judgment-free zone and safe place to discuss your situation and future. You will only receive truthful, fact-based information from us.

If your test is positive, we can provide financial assistance. However, you must talk with one of our counselors to qualify for financial assistance.
