At CARE Clinics for Abortion & Reproductive Excellence we provide abortions, contraception and routine medical care to women and men in a compassionate, comfortable and personal environment.
We recognize the needs of each client as an individual, while attempting to keep costs as affordable as possible. Every member of our team has pledged to make your experience with us one we would want for our sisters, our partners, our mothers and our daughters. And we want you to know, you are not alone. One of every three women of child bearing age in the United States will have or has had an abortion.
There are many issues that must be addressed to ensure that you will be comfortable throughout your visit here. Although for many, when they think about comfort, physical pain is what immediately comes to mind; but if is really only one part. Yes, you will have some pain; however, most women describe the pain to be like bad “period cramps”. Conscious sedation can be considered for certain situations in particular locations in addition to the local anesthetic. You need to know that you will not be judged by us, that we will fully respect your choice. Our pledge is to treat every patient with kindness, courtesy, love, justice, and respect.
HOW A FIRST TRIMESTER ABORTION IS DONE
24 hours after taking the Mifeprex you will take a series of four (4) Cytotec tablets over three (3) hours. You place one (1) tablet in your upper cheek and jaw for about an hour and it dissolves. An hour later repeat on the other side. An hour after the second dose you place two (2) tablets in your upper jaw, on each side, for about an hour and let them dissolve. Cytotec causes cramping and bleeding, and may also cause nausea, diarrhea, and other symptoms. This is the pill which causes your uterus to expel any products of conception.
You will receive the necessary medications (including for the pain of cramping) in the clinic, and follow-up instructions, including what you should do in the event of a complication.
You will need to make an appointment for a check-up visit, usually about two (2) weeks after the abortion. This appointment only takes about ten (10) minutes. If you were found to still be pregnant or have any products of conception remaining in your uterus we would offer the surgical procedure at no cost (See 1st Trimester Surgical).
There are no restrictions following a medical abortion.
Pregnancy tests can read positive for up to six (6) weeks post abortions.
