Abortion Info

Surgical Abortion

There are different types of surgical abortions. If you would like more information about abortion procedures, schedule an appointment at our center to speak with one of our nurses.

Aspiration (Suction)

  • Serious physical complications are infrequent
  • Bleeding
  • Infection
  • Incomplete abortion
  • Allergic reaction to medication
  • Organ damage

Dilation & Evacuation (D&E)

  • Incomplete abortion with retained tissue
  • Heavy bleeding
  • Reactions to anesthesia
  • Infection
  • Organ damage
  • Risk of complication and death increases with duration of pregnancy

Medical Abortion
The abortion pill (also known as Mifeprex, mifepristone, or RU-486) uses two drugs and is approved by the FDA for use in women up to 10 weeks after their last menstrual period. It is the most common type of medical abortion.

Side effects can include:
  • Abdonminal pain
  • Severe cramping
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Headaches
  • Dizziness
  • Fever/chills

For more information about medical abortions, please contact our office. Before starting any medical procedure, it is important for you to have a medical-grade pregnancy test and an ultrasound to confirm a viable pregnancy. At our center, we offer these services at no charge.

Emergency Contraception
Often called the “morning-after pill” emergency contraception is intended to prevent pregnancy after known or suspected contraceptive failure or unprotected intercourse. Plan B One-Step™ and ella® work differently and have specific risks and side effects.

Should I take it?
Consider the cost, your likelihood of becoming pregnant, and its effectiveness and potential to interrupt the development of a new life. It’s your choice.

Before taking emergency contraception, it is important to understand your body, your cycle, and the timing of how pregnancy begins. If you would like more information, call today and speak with one of our nurses.
