Late-Term Abortion Services

Abortion up to 24 weeks

On the first day dilators will be placed in the cervix to gently and slowly open the cervix overnight. You will return the next day to have the procedure. This is the safest and most comfortable way to perform a surgical abortion after 14 weeks.

In some cases, especially after 20 weeks, the surgical abortion may be done in a 3 step procedure in which dilators are placed on the first and second days and the procedure finished on the third day.

Surgical Abortion Follow-up Care

After your surgical abortion a follow-up visit is very important. You must come in for a post-procedure visit 2 to 3 weeks after the abortion. There is no charge for this visit.

State of Arizona Consent

The State of Arizona requires that women having an abortion must have a consultation with the doctor at least 24 hours prior to the procedure. The state requires us to give you certain pieces of information at that consultation. This information can only be given to you in person by one of our doctors. This means that you will need to make two visits to our office, one to receive the state-required information, and once for your abortion procedure. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please understand that this process is required by state law.
