PRE-ABORTION ASSESSMENT

When considering an abortion, your health and safety are important to us. 

At your appointment, you will meet with a nurse who will provide you with a free ultrasound to confirm a viable pregnancy and estimate how far along you are. It is important to find out how far along you are when considering abortion. Medical services are provided free of charge by licensed medical personnel.

There are two main types of abortion.

Medical Abortion

Medication abortion (also called the abortion pill) can be taken up to 70 days (10 weeks pregnant) after the start of your last menstrual period. The pill (two drugs, mifepristone and misoprostol) is taken in two doses, one typically at a doctor’s office and the other at home.

SURGICAL ABORTION

There are several types of surgical abortions. Suction aspiration, also called suction curettage, or vacuum aspiration abortion, is performed during the first 6 to 16 weeks gestation. Dilation and Evacuation (D&E) is another type of procedure typically done in later weeks. Both types have risks and side-effects and greatly vary depending on your gestation and health.

If you are considering abortion, your first step is a pre-abortion assessment. We never financially benefit from your decision and can discuss your options with absolutely no pressure. All services are free and confidential.
