Here are three important pieces of information you need to know before making a decision about an abortion or the abortion pill.


How Far Along You Are

Abortion costs vary and depend on how far along you are, where you get a medical abortion or the type of abortion procedure. Make an appointment for a free ultrasound today to determine fetal development and what options are available to you.

Normal Pregnancy

It’s important to determine if the pregnancy is normal and if you are at risk for a natural miscarriage or ectopic (tubal) pregnancy to prevent any complications.


Not all abortion providers provide testing for STIs or STDs. Ruling out or treating an STI or STD is important because infections or serious complications can occur if one isn’t treated before you undergo an abortion procedure. Talk to one of our nurses today and get more information.
We can walk through all your options, discuss side effects of the different types of abortion and answer any questions or concerns you may have.

Before making any decisions, you will need to first know if you are really pregnant. An ultrasound exam is the most reliable way to confirm a possible pregnancy and will help you make a fully informed choice.

There are two main types of abortion:

Medical Abortion
Medication abortion also called the abortion pill, can be taken up to 70 days (10 weeks pregnant.) The pill ( two drugs, mifepristone and misoprostol) is taken in two doses, one typically at a doctor’s office and the other at home. To determine how far along you are and to talk to a nurse about your options and side-effects, make an appointment today.
Surgical Abortion
There are several types of surgical abortions.  Suction aspiration,  also called suction curettage, or vacuum aspiration abortion, is performed during the first 6 to 16 weeks gestation. Dilation and Evacuation (D&E) is another type of procedure typically done in later weeks. Both types have risks and side-effects and greatly vary depending on your gestation and health. If you are considered late-term and are still considering an abortion, make an appointment today to talk about your options.
