Understanding the Abortion Pill
The abortion pill comprises two medications that are administered in our center and can also be taken in the privacy of your own home. Many women describe the medication abortion as a “private” and “similar to a miscarriage” experience.
You will receive the first pill at our center, which blocks progesterone, a hormone necessary to sustain the pregnancy. Approximately 24-48 hours later, you will take the second set of pills at home. These pills gently soften and open the cervix, facilitating the passage of the discontinued pregnancy. Most women fully expel the uterine contents within 6 hours after taking the set of pills at home, leading to vaginal bleeding akin to a heavy menstrual period and intense cramps. Light bleeding may persist until your next period.
Why Choose Us?
We offer same-day appointments for women seeking immediate care. Additionally, we can schedule your follow-up appointment, which is included in the price. If desired, you may opt for a pregnancy test 25-30 days later or seek follow-up care with your own physician.
The medication abortion (Abortion Pill) has a 95-98% effectiveness rate in completely terminating a pregnancy. The treatment’s success depends on the regimen and length of pregnancy. In most cases, the Abortion Pill proves successful. In the rare instance of an incomplete abortion, we can safely administer additional medication or perform a surgical abortion at our center.
One week after your first visit, you will return for a third appointment to evaluate the completeness of the abortion through a repeat ultrasound. This visit is included in the price you pay on the day you take the first medication dose and is mandatory. We will also discuss and prescribe contraception during this visit.
Early Surgical Abortion (First Trimester: 6 up to 12 weeks)
Once medical history forms, lab work, and counseling are completed, you will be accompanied to the procedure room. To alleviate anxiety, mild sedation may be provided.
The abortion method employed is vacuum aspiration. The sensation experienced during the procedure varies from person to person, with some comparing it to menstrual cramps. Following the procedure, our attentive nursing staff will closely monitor you in a comfortable recovery room.
Surgical Abortion (Second Trimester: 12.1 up to 16 weeks)
Similar to first trimester surgical procedures, second trimester abortions involve a slightly longer procedure and may require extended recovery time due to the advanced stage of pregnancy.
After Your Surgical Abortion
Following the abortion, you will rest in a comfortable recovery room under the close supervision of our nursing staff.
Before your departure, you will receive a prescription and post-operative instructions. We encourage patients to take their
time and rest before leaving our center—there’s no need to rush.
You can resume normal activities the day after your abortion but should avoid strenuous exercise. It is essential to take all prescribed medicines as directed.
Please report any unusual symptoms such as excessive bleeding, severe cramping, or a temperature over 100.4 degrees F to our center immediately.
Around three weeks after your procedure, you are welcome to return to our center for a follow-up examination. Alternatively, you can seek follow-up care from your personal physician.
