The Abortion Pill or Medical Abortion
Medical abortion (commonly referred to as the abortion pill) is available within 10 weeks of the first day of your last menstrual period. A medical abortion is a two-visit process using two different drugs.
A surgical abortion ends a pregnancy by surgically removing the contents of the uterus. The methods include Suction / Vacuum Aspiration between weeks 6-16 and Dilation and Evacuation (D&E) between weeks 16-24.
What kind of abortion should I get?
Good question! An ultrasound is the only way to confirm a viable pregnancy, fetal location, and gestational age (how far along you are). This information determines which abortion procedure you would qualify for. We can also explain each abortions risks and possible side effects, so you have all the information you need to make a decision with confidence.
