Receiving an ultrasound is the most accurate way to determine how far along you are in your pregnancy, which is necessary to know in order to find out which abortion procedures are available to you.
There are many abortion procedures:
- Abortion Pill (Mifreprex & Mifepristone, more commonly known as RU-486)
- Suction Dilation & Curettage
- Dilation and Evacuation
- Dilation and Extraction / Intact Dilation and Extraction
- Intra-cardiac injection
It is important to understand what these procedures are and how they affect you. We can provide information on these and other forms of emergency contraception that are available.
As with many medical procedures, abortions entail risks. Understanding these risks will affect the decision you make with your pregnancy. You have the right to make an informed decision. We will help you make that decision by providing you all of the facts and support you need.
