Sheboygan, WI – Anchor of Hope Health Center offers women several options and support services after testing positive for pregnancy.

Licensed professional medical staff is available to listen and answer questions about the pros and cons of each choice. Services are available to students, parents, and partners (male and female).
Appointments at Anchor of Hope Health Center are free of charge and confidential. Patients deciding to pursue medication abortion as an option are made aware of additional choices if they change their minds after taking the first pill (typically mifepristone). The clinic can recommend the introduction of progesterone after the first pill and before the second series of pills are taken. This procedure has a 66-68% success rate and is referred to as Abortion Pill Reversal or APR.
The women’s care clinic Sheboygan offers pre-abortion screening to provide necessary information and answer patient queries. The pre-abortion screening appointment at Anchor of Hope Health Center includes an ultrasound to determine whether the pregnancy is located in the uterus. This diagnostic test can help reveal if the patient is at possible risk for an ectopic pregnancy or spontaneous miscarriage. Ectopic pregnancy occurs in 1-2 out of 100 pregnancies, and miscarriage rates can be as high as 26%.
Because of miscarriage risk, an ultrasound helps by confirming a fetal heartbeat. The absence of a fetal heartbeat can be an indication of a spontaneous miscarriage. In the event of a spontaneous miscarriage, both the expense and heartache of an elective abortion could be avoided. The ultrasound also confirms the estimated due date of the pregnancy. Knowing how far along a pregnancy is helps a patient plan, as up to 50% of pregnancies are not consistent with a last period date. The center’s in-house medical services also help patients avoid the potential dangers of ordering abortion pills online without guidance from a medical professional.
