Once your doctor checks you in, you will have your own private examination room, which you can stay in until you leave the office. We will assign you a nurse that will be with you throughout the entire procedure. At our offices we administer a pregnancy test and a state of the art trans-vaginal ultrasound to confirm your date of pregnancy. You will then have a discussion with a Board Certified OB/GYN who will counsel you regarding different treatment options for a termination of pregnancy and different methods of pain control.
If you choose an Aspiration Abortion
, you have the option to minimize your discomfort. Your Board Certified OB/GYN will offer you a local anesthetic “numbing” blocks or “twilight/light” sedation. Your Board Certified OB/GYN will then insert a thin tube into the natural opening of the cervix. Attached to the thin tube is a handheld device, which provides a mild suction pressure. After 2-3 minutes the doctor removes the hand held device and the procedure is over. A second sonogram is then preformed to double check that the procedure was successful. Once the abortion is confirmed you will lay down for several minutes, relax, enjoy a snack/beverage and then you can go home to resume your normal activities. This procedure is considered to be extremely simple and mild. You can expect a total office appointment time of 1-1.5 hours. We welcome and encourage you to bring parents, spouses, or companions.
If you choose to terminate pregnancy with an Abortion Pill
, the doctor will provide you with two sets of pills. The first pill, RU-486/Mifeprex™/Mifepristone
, is taken in our medical office or in the privacy of your own home. It works by blocking progesterone, which is necessary to sustain a pregnancy. By blocking the hormone, the lining of the uterus breaks down which induces a miscarriage. The second set of two pills, Misoprostol, are taken at home, 48 hours later. Misoprostol tablets cause the uterus to contract and evacuate the pregnancy naturally. A follow up visit, to occur a week later, will include a second trans-vaginal sonogram to confirm the method was successful.
The Abortion Pill/RU-486
, is 97-99% effective, the earlier you are in your pregnancy the more effective the Abortion Pill
is. If the Abortion Pill
fails your Board Certified OB/GYN will do an Aspiration Procedure
in our private office at no additional charge. We guarantee
the Abortion Pill.
Most women find a non-surgical abortion easier both emotionally and physically. Women across the country have had reported positive experiences when using the Abortion Pill
. Namely, some advantages of taking the pill are that women are able to take the Abortion Pill
in the privacy and comfort of their own home. When taking the Abortion Pill your significant other or family member can be with you during the entire process, many patients appreciate having loved ones around when the miscarriage occurs. Taking the Abortion Pill
does not involve any medical procedures and it is a very effective natural way of terminating an early pregnancy.
