Abortion Pill up to 10 weeks LMP

The Abortion Pill, also known as the French abortion pill or RU-486, as an alternative to the surgical abortion procedure. The abortion pill method use to be available up to 10 weeks from the first day of your last normal menstrual period.

Two medicines are used to complete the abortion. The first medicine, Mifeprex, is given by mouth and causes the pregnancy to separate from the uterus. The second medicine, Misoprostol, is inserted into the vagina and causes the uterus to contract and expel the pregnancy.

The abortion pill requires three clinic visits on three separate days. On the first visit, you would complete the state-mandated counseling and our physician and counselors will answer any questions you may have about the process.

On the second visit, you would sign your consent papers, have a pelvic exam, meet with the physician, and swallow the Mifeprex pills. You would receive Misoprostol tablets to take home and insert later. You would also receive detailed instructions and pain medications.

With the abortion pill, you could expect cramping, heavy bleeding, and clots. The process can last anywhere from 4 to 12 hours and in some cases it may take up to 48 hours.

At the third visit, 7-10 days, you would need a follow-up ultrasound to make sure that you've passed the pregnancy and are no longer pregnant.

If you have a problem or an emergency during or after this process, you would need to speak with our on-call medical staff 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Surgical Abortion through 22 weeks LMP

Surgical Abortions are performed through 22 weeks, counting from the first day of the last menstrual period.

Surgical abortions are done by vacuum aspiration(suction) and instruments if needed. For surgical abortion procedures 12 weeks or less, the cervix is opened with dilators. The doctor inserts a small hollow tube that is connected to a suction device and removes the contents of the uterus, the pregnancy, the afterbirth, and the uterine lining.

Most women feel some cramping, similar to strong menstrual cramps.

For surgical abortion procedures at 13-14 weeks, the cervix needs some softening prior to the procedure. To help the cervix soften, the patient swallows 2 tablets of Misoprostol a few hours before the procedure.

For surgical abortion procedures at 15 weeks and above, the cervix must be softened and opened with Laminaria (dilating sticks) prior to the abortion. The Laminaria are left in the cervix several hours. At 17 weeks and above, Laminaria may be left in place overnight. Most women feel some cramping while Laminaria are in the cervix.

If you have a problem or an emergency during or after your surgical abortion, you can speak with our on-call medical staff 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
