Looking for information about taking an abortion pill or different types of abortion procedures?
Make an appointment today to learn more about the types of abortion by trimester, determine how far along you are, and talk to one of our client advocates about your options.
Abortion providers offer both medical and surgical abortions. The types of abortion that may be available depend on factors such as how far along a woman is in her pregnancy and what kinds of procedures an abortion provider offers.
Types of Abortion
Medication abortion, also called the abortion pill, can be taken within the first 10 weeks (70 days) of pregnancy. The pill ( two drugs, mifepristone and misoprostol) is taken in two doses, one at a doctor’s office or clinic, and the other at home. To determine how far along you are and to talk to a nurse about your options and side-effects, make an appointment with Care Net today.
There are several types of surgical abortions. Suction aspiration, also called suction curettage, or vacuum aspiration abortion, is performed during the first 6 to 16 weeks gestation. Dilation and Evacuation (D&E) is another type of procedure typically done in later weeks. Both types have risks and side-effects that greatly vary depending on your gestation and health. If you are considered late-term and are still considering an abortion, make an appointment with Care Net today to talk about your options.
