In this drastically changed reproductive health landscape, Texans and Louisianans need a trusted place to turn for expert, compassionate care and information. No matter what your circumstances are, we offer several pregnancy-related services, including:
Servicios de embarazo
Planned Parenthood Gulf Coast es un lugar seguro, compasivo y sin prejuicios al que acudir para obtener cuidado de salud e información sobre su embarazo, incluidas todas sus opciones.
An easy and accurate way to find out if you’re pregnant, pregnancy tests work by checking your urine for a hormone called hCG that your body makes if you’re pregnant. Pregnancy tests are most accurate when you take them after you’ve already missed your period. The earlier you know you’re pregnant, the sooner you can start thinking about your options and get whatever care you need to stay healthy.
People who are pregnant have three options — parenting, adoption, or abortion. Your personal decision is yours alone, and everyone’s situation is different. While PPGC can no longer provide abortion care, we’re here to provide accurate, non-judgmental information about all your options, answer your questions, and offer support as you make a decision — no matter what you decide about your pregnancy.
An ultrasound is a safe and painless way to help determine how far along a pregnancy is to provide more information about your options. It shows you and your provider an image of your uterus and can also help rule out an ectopic pregnancy.
Evaluation for early pregnancy loss and miscarriage management
If you’re experiencing pregnancy complications or think you may be having a miscarriage, our providers can evaluate you and provide care and/or information. If we can’t provide your care directly in our health center, we can connect you to a trusted community partner who can.
Patient navigation for out-of-state abortion
While we can’t provide abortion at PPGC, we can help connect you to safe and legal care in another state. Visit ppgulfcoast.org/abortionhelp for more information.
Pre- and post-abortion care
We’re still here to help you before and after an out-of-state appointment. Pre- and post-abortion care can include providing medically accurate information, answering any questions you may have, ultrasounds to date your pregnancy before an out-of-state abortion or confirm that you are no longer pregnant after an out-of-state abortion, and providing follow-up care like birth control, emergency contraception, and other family planning services.
