There are two main types of abortion:
Medication termination (also called “the 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.
There are several types of surgical terminations. Suction aspiration, also called suction curettage, or vacuum aspiration termination, 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 a termination, 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.
