Surgical Abortion Procedures are available up to 14 weeks and 6 days from the start of the last menstrual period, as determined by ultrasound in our office.
A surgical abortion is performed with your choice of local anesthesia or intravenous sedation (twilight sleep).
Surgical abortion procedures are done in a single day. If you are over 13 weeks, your doctor may recommend using a medication called misoprostol to help prpare your cervix for the procedure. You will be given the misoprostol soon after arriving in the clinic and will than wait 90 minutes to 3 hours for the medication to have ist effect.
