Abortion Methods

Your Options

The most common options for an early abortion are a D&C and the Abortion Pill. We also provide 2nd Trimester Terminations, or D&E procedures, up to 24 weeks of gestation. These procedures are considered very safe and have minimal side effects. No surgery is required for the abortion pill. Surgical procedures, including D&C, are performed in the facility’s state licensed operating rooms. The Morning After Pill, or Plan B, is NOT an abortion pill, but is a contraceptive pill.

Patients usually resume normal activities immediately or within a few days of their procedure. The side effects are minimal, and minor complications such as infection, bleeding or persistent cramping are usually treatable in a doctor’s office. The complication rate in our center is very low because of our experienced Board Certified Ob/Gyns and qualified medical staff.


Early abortion is low-risk in the first trimester of pregnancy (within 10 weeks). The least risk to the patient is termination in the 1st trimester. Long-term risks such as infertility, ectopic pregnancy or miscarriage are not expected.
