San Antonio Abortion Clinics – 2nd Trimester Abortion Services at Family Planning Associates Medical Group

Quality Compassionate Reproductive Health Care Personalized To Fit Your Needs

San Antonio, Texas – In-Office Abortion / Abortion Pill Clinic

Family Planning Associates Medical Group (FPA) Abortion Clinic for San Antonio, Texas residents is one of the largest independent abortion providers in the United States. FPA has been a nationally recognized provider of safe and compassionate abortion care for over thirty five years.

Many patients travel from Kentucky, Mississippi, Alabama, Texas, Louisiana, and Florida to obtain abortion care at FPA clinics. We have appointments available within 1-5 days most of the time and will work with you to accommodate your work schedule and/or travel plans.

FPA offers comprehensive reproductive healthcare including birth control visits with or without an exam, first trimester surgical abortion, medication abortion up to 11.0 weeks, and second trimester abortion procedures up to 23.5 weeks.

As restrictive abortion laws have been passed in Texas and other states, FPA quickly evolved to offer help to patients travelling from Texas to access abortion care.

Texas has 7 million people of reproductive age, and San Antonio residents face some of the most restrictive abortion policies in the United States. Right now abortion is completely banned with very limited exceptions. There have always been laws in Texas that made it harder for patients to have an abortion in San Antonio, including parental consent and notification requirements, a 24 hour waiting period after an in-person counseling session which forces patients to make two trips to a clinic for care, and private health insurance coverage of abortion is banned except in very limited circumstances.

These restrictive laws stop patients from scheduling and having an abortion procedure in the first trimester, when it is safest. In Illinois there are no waiting periods or laws to delay your care—we can see you any day Monday through Saturday.

When you are pregnant you have three options:

  • Parenting
  • Abortion
  • Adoption

We can help if you are facing an unplanned or unwanted pregnancy. Nearly half of all pregnancies are not planned, and it can be a stressful experience to find out that you are pregnant when you didn’t plan it or don’t want to be.

Decisions about pregnancy are personal and only you know the right decision for yourself and your family. We trust you to make the decision that is right for you. If you are unsure of your decision and need unbiased advice and information, we recommend contacting All-Options. This talkline is staffed by volunteer peer-counselors. You can talk with someone about a past or present experience with abortion, adoption, parenting, infertility or pregnancy.

Safety is important to our patients and physicians. ACOG, The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, states on their website that abortion is a safe medical intervention, “Most abortions are safely performed in an outpatient nonhospital setting.” ACOG also states that only about 2% of patients who have an abortion experience a complication, and most of these complications are minor and easily treatable with follow-up procedures or antibiotics.

Your risk can depend on your personal medical history too. We will ask you to complete a full medical history and speak with one of our medical staff members before you travel to FPA from San Antonio for abortion care. Tell our staff if you have any current or past medical concerns so we can provide the best possible care for you.

FPA has offers a comfortable and private clinic setting for abortion care. We want you to feel comfortable obtaining services with us. Our compassionate and knowledgeable staff will review your pregnancy options, answer your questions, and talk with you about any concerns you might have.

All of our experienced physicians are board certified in obstetrics and gynecology and most are also on staff at a highly regarded local hospital. Our physicians, advanced care clinicians, administrative staff, nursing personnel, and entire support staff work together closely to offer safe, confidential and caring abortion services – this is one of our core values.

The abortion pill procedure is extremely safe and effective. According to the Guttmacher Institute, first trimester abortion is one of the safest medical procedures, with a less than 0.5% rate of major complications.

The medication abortion is a completely noninvasive procedure, but all medical treatment comes with some risk, for that reason we ask you to contact us right away if:

  • Have extremely heavy bleeding- hemorrhage is one risk with this procedure and in some rare cases, a surgical procedure is required to stop heavy uterine bleeding.
  • Any signs of infection- Serious infection can occur in about 1 per 1,000 people who take this medication and death from infection occurs in less than 1 per 100,000 cases. If you develop flu-like symptoms including sluggishness, weakness or muscle aches with or without a fever it is very important that you call us immediately. It is also important for you to call us if you have nausea, vomiting or diarrhea more than 24 hours after taking the misoprostol. We will give you antibiotics, to reduce the risk of infection. You can help prevent infection by taking your antibiotics as directed and by avoiding tampon use, sexual activity, douching, or placing anything in the vagina until your bleeding is lighter than your normal period.
  • You have any signs of an allergic reaction such as a rash/swelling or if you have any other abnormal reactions to your medications.

FPA has a medical staff member on call 24 hours a day in case of an emergency. We can be reached at 1-866-849-1906.

Approximately 1.75 million people in the U.S. and millions more worldwide have chosen the Abortion Pill to end a pregnancy. It is effective approximately 91-98% of the time. How well the medication works can depend on how far along you are in the pregnancy.

8 weeks or less — Works about 98 out of 100 times the medication is taken

8-9 weeks — Works about 96 out of 100 times the medication is taken

9-10 weeks — Works about 91-93 out of 100 times the medication is taken, but if you take an extra dose of misoprostol it works 99 out of 100 times

10-11 weeks — Works about 87 out of 100 times the medication is taken, but if you take an extra does of misoprostol it works 98 out of 100 times
