General Abortion Services Information
Abortion can best be defined as the expulsion of the products of conception, i.e. a fetus or embryo with associated placenta and membranes, prior to viability.
Furthermore, there is no uniform agreement as to the point in pregnancy at which a fetus ought to be considered viable or capable of living outside the uterus.
Generally, it is felt to be between 24 and 26 weeks from a standard last menstrual period, even though survival does not become a probability until 28 weeks.
If the products of conception spontaneously expel, as frequently is the case in nature, the process is referred to as a spontaneous abortion. When a pregnancy is surgically removed for the purpose of terminating a pregnancy, the process is known as an induced abortion. Hence, induced abortion is the subject of this discussion.
In most states, including the state of Florida, a qualified physician may electively induce an abortion until viability. Beyond that stage, abortion is generally permitted only for severe fetal abnormality or to preserve the life of the mother. Because most women recognize pregnancy and make their decision for abortion services early, most pregnancy terminations are performed in the first trimester, i.e. at 12 weeks or less of pregnancy.
NOTICE: We offer and recommend IUD (Intrauterine Device/contraception) insertion at the same time as your procedure.
Advantages: You only have one procedure and not two, you will have no pain with the insertion of the IUD, you won’t need any additional visits to the office, and you will have immediate protection against pregnancy.
