Question & Answers

Is an abortion a safe procedure?
Most terminations of pregnancy are performed within the first trimester of pregnancy. During this early stage, there is very little risk involved when an abortion is performed by an experienced gynecologist.

Will the procedure be painful?
Most surgical abortions are performed using some type of anesthesia, either local or conscious sedation. There is little or no discomfort during the surgery. Normally, you will experience some abdominal cramping, similar to menstrual cramps, right after the procedure.

How long will I be at Metropolitan Medical Associates?
Your visit to Metropolitan Medical Associates will take approximately 3-4 hrs. This includes your recovery time. It would be wise for your driver to leave during this time and return to accompany you home.

Is a non-surgical abortion safer than a surgical abortion?
There are advantages and disadvantages to both procedures. The abortion pill may be taken up to 10 weeks after a missed period. This procedure usually causes more bleeding and cramping than a surgical abortion. However, some women prefer this method because there is no surgical or anesthesia risk involved. If our physician’s evaluation finds you eligible for either procedure, it becomes a matter of personal choice.

Will I be contacted after I leave Metropolitan Medical Associates?

There should be no reason for us to call you after you have left the facility. If on the rare occasion that we do, we will not speak to anyone but you. Our staff is extremely sensitive to your privacy and confidentiality.

Do I need the consent of my parent or spouse to have an abortion?
Currently, New Jersey Law does not require parental consent or notification. Although involving your parents, spouse or friend may be helpful in making the best possible choice, ultimately, the decision is up to you.
