There are two common, well-tested and safe procedures for surgical abortion:
Vacuum Aspiration is the preferred method if you are less than 14 weeks from your last menstrual period. We provide you with pain medication and a mild sedative to assure you are as comfortable as possible. The procedure takes only a minute or two with little to no pain, but we’ll ask that you remain in the center for some time after for observation.
Dilation & Evacuation (D&E) is the method used for pregnancies between 14 and 18 weeks. One day of dilation is used through 17.6 weeks. Two days of dilation is used at 18 weeks. The actual procedure only takes around 15-30 minutes to complete.
Commonly referred to as “the abortion pill” medical abortion can be administered up to 10 weeks or 70 days from the last menstrual cycle. It involves no surgery – you simply swallow a pill. This will result in a miscarriage and a “heavy period” will result.
