VERY FORTUNATE TO HAVE FOUND REAL OPTIONS IN SAN JOSE! I was very fortunate to have found Real Options Abortion Information & Pregnancy Clinic in San Jose, several years ago when I was pregnant and realized that parenting alone would be the safest choice for myself and my son. I went weekly for counseling, which helped me stay emotionally and physically healthy in the process of leaving an unsafe marriage. What I remember is not just the counseling and conversationsabout abortion that focused on the bad times, but the emphasis on the positive and happy parts of my life and pregnancy. Hearing the good things motivated me and helped me to weather the storm ahead. I went on to make a plan, save money, take night classes, and give birth to a healthy child. I am so thankful for the support they provided me then and still do now with an occasional check-ins about my life and the direction I am going. I also know that if I ever needed anything, even clothes for my son, they would help me. This place is staffed by very genuine and caring people, some of whom are volunteers who are volunteering because they simply enjoy helping and supporting others and their families.

Tips & Advices
This depends on the facility. Patients should call to find out if they'll need a referral from their physician prior to making an appointment.
Aside from hyperbaric oxygen treatment, most wound care centers offer:
  • Debridement: The removal of dead skin and tissue surrounding the wound. This can be done surgically, using a whirlpool bath, syringes, enzymes that dissolve the tissue, or wet dressings that dry on the wound and absorb the dead tissue.
  • Dressing: Wrapping the wound in a protective film, gauze, gel, or foam.
  • Compression stockings: Tight-fitted fabric sheaths that encourage blood flow.
  • Artificial skin: A covering that is applied to the wound for several days as it heals.
  • Ultrasound: The use of sound waves to promote healing.
  • Growth factor therapy: The use of materials naturally produced by the body to encourage quick cell growth.
  • Negative pressure therapy: Creating a vacuum around a wound to encourage faster blood flow to the area.
Depending on where the treatment is administered, hyperbaric oxygen treatment  can cost $100- $1,000. After insurance is applied, patients may have a copay of $10 -$50 or a coinsurance fee of 10 percent to 50 percent.
Most wounds should heal within two to six weeks. An individual should seek chronic wound treatment if a wound has not begun to heal after two weeks or is not completely healed after six.
Most health insurance plans cover wound care. Patients should check with the clinic and their health insurance provider before seeking treatment to be sure.
