In the first trimester, two options are available: Aspiration abortion is done by a physician in our clinic or the Abortion Pill which you take at home.
Abortions can be performed as early as an intra-uterine pregnancy can be identified by ultrasound, which is usually about 3-4 weeks after your Last Menstrual Period (LMP). Use our Pregnancy Calculator to find the number of weeks and days you are.
Also known as Medical Abortion, the abortion pill is an option from up to 10 weeks LMP. It is a combination of two medications, Misoprostol and Mifepristone, which, together, induce a miscarriage. Women who choose this option must be willing to provide a mailing address, have a support network outside of the clinic, stay within 2 hours of a hospital, and return for a required follow-up appointment to ensure the abortion is complete. Occasionally, more than one follow-up appointment may be necessary.
In the second trimester, Dilation and Evacuation (D&E) is used for abortions beyond 15 weeks. It is done by a physician in our clinic. Sedation is available.
Dilation and Evacuation (D&E) is the medical procedure used for some abortions beyond 15 weeks LMP.
D & E involves a process that includes preparations to gradually/slowly dilate or open the cervix before the actual abortion. It is performed, in clinic, by an expert physician who specializes in abortion care and may require appointments on 1 to 3 consecutive days depending on gestation and the doctor’s discretion.
Facing pregnancy complications can be devastating. If you are seeking therapeutic abortion due to genetic or other fetal anomaly, we are here for you.
