Abortion width IV Sedation or General Anesthesia

Many abortion clinics offer additional options for sedation during an abortion. In general, there are two categories of sedation: (1) IV Sedation where relaxing drugs (such as Versed, Fentanyl, etc) are administered through an intravenous needle in the hand causing light conscious sedation; or (2) General Anesthesia where drugs are administered by an Anesthesiologist or Nurse Anesthetist to cause the patient to be asleep and unaware during the abortion procedure. Recovery time is somewhat longer after these additional sedation options, there are usually additional costs, and most clinics recommend that patients not drive themselves home afterward.

Call the following abortion clinic near you to discuss the sedation or anesthesia options for your abortion.
