Abortion Services

Surgical abortions are offered at our facility from 5 to 19 weeks. You will receive laboratory testing, counseling and education before the procedure. A sonogram will be performed to determine gestational age. IV conscious sedation is offered to promote relaxation and pain relief.


FIRST TRIMESTER ABORTION


• May be performed during the first 5 through 12 weeks of pregnancy

• The procedure is completed in one visit.

• A local anesthetic is used to numb the cervix, which is gently dilated. A small vacurette is inserted into the uterus and suction is used to remove the uterine contents.


SECOND TRIMESTER ABORTION


• May be performed from 13-19 weeks.

• The procedure may require two days.

• Many 13 - 15 week terminations, however, can be completed in one day.

• Laminaria will be inserted to dilate the cervix.

• On the second day, the patient will return to the clinic to complete the abortion.

MEDICAL ABORTION / MIREPREX


• Pregnancy must be no more than 49 days, as determined by our ultrasound.

• After careful medical screening, Mifeprex is given. This medication causes the pregnancy to detach from the uterus. Two days later, the patient takes Misoprostol. This medication causes the uterus to expel the pregnancy.

• The patient will have heavy bleeding and cramping at home and should complete the abortion within 2 - 12 hours. Bleeding may last up to three weeks.

• 7 to 14 days later, the patient returns to the clinic for a follow-up exam to ensure the abortion is complete.

• You are carefully supervised by our physician.
