No Cost/Low Cost and Confidential Services — Women's Center in Springfield, Illinois

Protect Your Future Reproductive Health

Because abortion is invasive (even using RU486 abortion pills), you should consider your future reproductive health. An STD (Sexually Transmitted Disease) can be transferred through your cervix (which opens with any abortion) into your uterus. If this happens, it could cause PID (Pelvic Inflammatory Disease), which is painful and could possibly cause infertility.

At First Step’s main center, we offer pregnant women low-cost testing and treatment for the two most common, treatable STDs (Chlamydia and Gonorrhea). On our mobile medical unit, we offer these same STD services for all women, whether or not you are pregnant.
