Abortion Pill

Abortion Pill

WHAT:

The Abortion Pill, also called RU-486, uses two kinds of medication (mifepristone and misoprostol) to induce an abortion privately, safely and effectively in your own home. The abortion pill can be taken in early pregnancy and is an alternative to the in-office abortion procedure (surgical abortion).

HOW:

These medications can be used to end an early pregnancy, up to 10.0 weeks. Mifepristone is a pill that terminates the pregnancy, by blocking progesterone. Misoprostol tells the muscles of the uterus to cramp and softens the cervix so that the pregnancy tissue can pass.

WHEN:

Mifepristone is taken in our office after an ultrasound and medical evaluation. The misoprostol is taken 24-48 hours after the mifepristone, when it is convenient for you, in the privacy of your own home. This service is offered Monday-Saturday, at our downtown location and Wednesday, Friday and Saturday at our northwest location. Click here to read more about this process.

1st Trimester Procedure

1st Trimester Procedure

WHAT:

A first trimester abortion, or a dilation and curettage (D&C), is a medical procedure where tissue is removed from the uterus. This procedure is performed up to 13.6 weeks into pregnancy. This simple procedure is very commonly performed, and extremely safe.

HOW:

The procedure is two steps, first the physician will open the cervix a small amount, usually less than the size of your thumb and then a gentle suction is used to empty the uterus. The entire procedure is normally 5 – 7 minutes. You can choose sedation or local anesthesia with this procedure.

WHEN:

This procedure is completed in one day and is offered Tuesday - Saturday. The entire visit is normally 3 - 5 hours with recovery time. Click here to read more about this procedure. Click here to schedule your visit.

Early 2nd Trimester Procedure

Early 2nd Trimester Procedure

WHAT:

Early second trimester abortion procedures are usually performed between 14.0 to 15.6 weeks of pregnancy. We use the dilation and evacuation procedure, also known as a D&E.

HOW:

In the early second trimester, we use a medication to prepare (soften) the cervix before it is dilated. The procedure is two steps, first the physician will open the cervix, and then remove the pregnancy tissue. The entire procedure is normally 5 – 10 minutes. We will provide sedation for your comfort.

WHEN:

This procedure is completed in one day and is offered Tuesday - Saturday. The entire visit is normally 4 - 6 hours, with cervical preparation and recovery time. Click here to read more about this procedure. Click here to schedule your visit.

2nd Trimester Procedure

2nd Trimester Procedure

WHAT:

Second trimester abortion procedures are usually performed between 16.0 - 23.5 weeks of pregnancy, over 2 - 3 consecutive days. We use the dilation and evacuation procedure, also known as a D&E.

HOW:

In the second trimester, we use cervical dilators called laminaria or dilapan to prepare (soften and open) the cervix before the procedure. Once the cervix is dilated, the physician will complete the procedure by removing the pregnancy tissue. The entire procedure is normally 10 - 20 minutes. We will provide sedation for your comfort.

WHEN:

This procedure is offered Monday - Friday. The initial visit(s) are normally 1 - 3 hours. The entire visit, on the day of the procedure, is normally 4 - 6 hours, with recovery time. Click here to read more about this procedure. Click here to schedule your visit.

About the Pregnancy Calculator

The Pregnancy Calculator provides an estimation of how long you have been pregnant based on the date you enter for your last normal menstrual period. You should not view this as medical advice, because a missed period does not necessarily mean that you are pregnant, and having a period like bleeding does not mean you are not pregnant. If your period has been late, early, shorter than normal, and/or longer than normal you may have been having bleeding during pregnancy. Only an exam or pregnancy test can confirm pregnancy and only an ultrasound can determine approximate length of pregnancy. This calculator should only be used as a guide and should not be relied upon for weeks of pregnancy, conception date, or due date.

If you are currently enrolled in Illinois Medicaid or are eligible for Medicaid and willing to apply for coverage we will be able to provide abortion care for you at NO COST in most cases. You will not have to pay anything for care related to your abortion including sedation, medications, lab testing, ultrasound, or RhoGAM if you have a negative blood type. For more information click here.

You must bring in proof of current Medicaid eligibility or documentation that you have already applied for Medicaid coverage to the office on the day of your visit. You can also email the document(s) to FPA before your visit. The email address is: medicaid@fpachicago.com
