Abortion

A pregnancy can be difficult to face for some people, but talking to someone about your fears and concerns can bring more clarity and confidence into making an informed decision. Our nurses provide education on medical facts, including abortion.

 

A pregnancy evaluation is necessary before any pregnancy decision.

  • First, we need to confirm your pregnancy is viable. 31% of pregnancies end on their own. Since a positive pregnancy test cannot medically confirm your pregnancy will even continue, we need to perform an ultrasound to confirm viability and find out how far along you are in your pregnancy. This can only be confirmed through an ultrasound.

  • It is important for you to be screened for STDs, for your reproductive wellness, both now and in the future. We collect urine to screen for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea. A full STD panel will be collected by your primary care physician. 

  • Another important thing you need to know is that if you are to have a termination procedure with an untreated STD, it can increase your risk of contracting Pelvic Inflammatory Disease by 25%. This will affect your health and could your reproductive wellness.

Types of Abortions

​The type of abortion available to you will depend on the gestational age of the fetus, which is why a pregnancy evaluation is important to your decision making process. WE DO NOT PERFORM OR REFER FOR ABORTIONS, but will educate you on abortions, adoptions and parenting so you can make an informed choice. 

  1. Medical Abortions

  2. Aspiration

  3. Dilation & Evacuation

 

 

Always let someone know when you have a procedure or take medication that can lead to bleeding.

 

After Abortion Care*

  • Drink lots of fluids - water, milk, juice, sports drinks. Consider eliminating or limiting carbonated beverages for a few days to prevent the risk of gas build-up.

  • Take a daily vitamin and choose healthy foods, to aid your body in recovery.

  • Limit vigorous exercise for up to two weeks.

  • Do not insert anything into your vagina for a minimum of two weeks - this means no sex, no tampons, etc.

  • If you develop a fever, extreme tenderness, or notice red streaks and/or heat in your breast, call your doctor immediately.
