Abortion/Pregnancy Termination Services
Medical and Surgical Abortion/Termination of Pregnancy Info
We offer a focused family planning program at University Women’s Health Specialists. Our physicians are faculty members in the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Women’s Health at the University of Hawaii John A Burns School of Medicine and are leading specialists and researchers in the field of family planning. We provide all patients with comprehensive counseling regarding pregnancy options and contraception. We provide 24-hour patient phone contact for emergencies.
Abortion services available: Based on medical factors and the length of your pregnancy (gestational age), several options are available for a pregnancy termination. We will explain to you the types of abortion you are most likely eligible for when you call to make your appointment. We are also able to offer visits through telemedicine where we can discuss your pregnancy options and provide counseling for medical abortion. At your appointment your physician will confirm which options are available to you.
Medical Abortion is a termination of pregnancy using a combination of medications. Generally, this is available to appropriate patients up to 77 days gestation (11 weeks). You may be eligible to use telemedicine to speak with a doctor prior to starting a medical abortion instead of having an in-person clinic visit.
- What to expect: Most people will have bleeding that starts within 1-4 hours of taking the medication. It is normal for you to have pain (cramping) and bleeding while the pregnancy passes. You may take pain medication as prescribed by your doctor to help with the pain.
- What to plan for: Because you will have bleeding and cramping (and sometimes stomach upset), you should arrange for time off work (at least 1 day), childcare, and to have a support person available to you after you take the medication.
- What to have at home: Heating pad or hot water bottles to help with cramping, light foods (ginger ale, broth, crackers, Jell-o), and menstrual pads.
- Recovery: Most people prefer to take it easy for a few days after an abortion. You should avoid strenuous exercise for the first week as this may cause additional bleeding. Let your body be your guide.
- Follow-Up Appointment: 1-2 weeks after taking your medications, we will follow up with you either in person or with telemedicine (phone or videoconference). Your doctor will discuss the reasons to contact the office if needed earlier than this. Four weeks after taking your medications, you should check a urine pregnancy test to make sure it is negative. Do not take a pregnancy test earlier because your body may still have hormones from the pregnancy that will make the test appear positive (a false positive). You do not routinely need a follow up ultrasound. We are always available if you have any questions or concerns.
