The Abortion Pill

Up to 11.0 weeks

The Medication Abortion (also called the ‘Abortion Pill’, Mifeprex, mifepristone, or RU-486) provides patients with a medical alternative to the in-office abortion procedure. With two medications, you can induce an abortion the comfort of your home.

First trimester abortion

Up to 11.6 weeks

This in-office procedure is very safe and very short – normally 5-7 minutes. We offer sedation if you do not want to feel any cramping or discomfort during the procedure. We also offer a local anesthetic option if you do not want to be asleep for the procedure.

Early Second trimester abortion

12.0 to 15.6 weeks

Early second-trimester abortion procedures are performed in one day. A medication is used to help soften and prepare the cervix for this in-office procedure. Sedation is provided during the procedure so that you will not feel any cramping or discomfort.

Second trimester abortion

16.0 to 23.5 weeks

Second trimester abortion procedures, performed after 16 weeks, require 1-2 days of preparation. Laminaria dilators and medications are used to help soften and gently open the cervix. Sedation is provided with this procedure for your comfort and safety.
