Pregnancy Options Counseling & Services
Patients coming to the SHS for a free pregnancy test receive pregnancy options counseling while waiting to receive their results. This short counseling session provides the patient with unbiased, nonjudgmental information about reproductive health.
To get a pregnancy test at Student Health Services, you can either buy a pregnancy test at the Student Health Services pharmacy or meet with a nurse who will order a urine pregnancy test for you.
Patients who have a positive pregnancy test are provided information about all options that are available to them. Please see the bottom of the page for more information about adoption, prenatal care, and off-campus abortion services.
Medication Abortion Services at SHS
SHS offers medication abortion at a very low cost in the clinic. Our caring clinicians provide confidential services, including a medical exam, a home care kit, and the medications needed for an abortion. All instructions will be provided to the patient.
Off-campus referrals for all pregnancy options are also listed below for your convenience:
Prenatal care is important to begin as soon as possible during your pregnancy to deliver a healthy baby. This means visiting a doctor who will provide you with information about how to take proper care of yourself during pregnancy and help you with any medical conditions.
If you have health insurance and need assistance finding a provider that is covered by your health plan, please call the Student Health Services at 562.985.4771 to schedule an appointment with the Referral Nurse.
