My friend is concerned she is having a miscarriage

Question: My friend thinks she is having a miscarriage. Today is March 4th, she got what she believed to be her period on February 20th, it stopped for two days now she has had excessively bleeding since the 22nd. She has been using marijuana and is concerned that if she seeks help at the local hospital they will get her in trouble. She already has a son and does not want to risk having him taken away. She has insurance but is not employed. Could family planning be a more secure option for health care in this situation?

Answer:  Please have her call her OBGYN and share the situation.  We do not believe she would be drug screened, however, she needs to put the health and safety of herself and unborn child first. Please call Family Planning if you have any additional questions or concerns 440-352-0608.
