Answers to your most important questions.
Pregnancy symptoms differ for every woman, and some might experience no symptoms at all. However, the most common sign of pregnancy is a missed period. There are other common symptoms that could detect the early stages of pregnancy including:
- Tender/swollen breasts
- Aversion to certain foods
- Mood swings
If you are experiencing one or more of these symptoms, you could be pregnant. However, the only way to tell if you are truly pregnant is to take a pregnancy test. Our center will provide you with an on-site test at no cost to you.
Our priority is getting women like you the proper care and support they need. That’s why all our services are no cost. Even if you would like to make an appointment solely to talk to someone about your options, you will not be required to bring any form of payment with you.
We want to ensure that you feel as comfortable as possible during your visit at Assure Women’s Center. Feel free to bring a friend, significant other, sibling, family member or parent with you to your appointment.
Unfortunately, you can be pregnant and have an STD at the same time. In fact, having an untreated STD while pregnant can cause serious harm to you and to your pregnancy. If you’ve had unprotected sex with a high-risk sexual partner or shared needles, it’s important that you get tested immediately.
Because our services are no cost to you, we do not require to see an insurance card or any form of payment when you come in for your appointment. This way, we are able to ensure that you get the resources and services you need in a completely confidential* manner.

There are some legal steps you will need to take before going in to get an abortion. Nebraska state law requires women to receive counseling on abortion facts and wait 24 hours after that to move forward with the procedure.
The abortion pill induces a chemical/ medical abortion. It is taken in the first 10 weeks of pregnancy, involving 2 medications. The first medication is Mifeprex, which blocks progesterone and interrupts pregnancy development prompting detachment of the implanted embryo. Secondly, Misoprostol is taken up to 48 hours later, inducing contractions to empty the uterus. Expect strong cramping, bleeding, nausea and vomiting. A final visit to the clinic is necessary to ensure the abortion is complete (8-10% of women will require a surgical abortion to complete the process.)
