Abortion is a medical procedure. If you are thinking about getting an abortion, you should learn the facts from a trustworthy source. Our clinic provides free, confidential and accurate abortion and pregnancy education, as well as counseling and support services.
We also perform free, limited obstetric ultrasounds to help you determine if an abortion is necessary. Limited ultrasounds can tell you:
The approximate age of your pregnancy, which determines what abortion methods are available to you.
How developed your baby is.
Whether your pregnancy is a potentially dangerous ectopic (or tubal) pregnancy. This is a pregnancy where the fetus is located outside of the uterus, and if left untreated could lead to serious medical complications.
We offer free, confidential limited ultrasounds to any woman who has a positive pregnancy test result at our center. To learn more about obtaining a free limited ultrasound, contact Eve’s Hope today.
There are a number of different abortion procedures. Before you consider abortion, you should learn about the different types of procedures and when they are commonly used.
The earliest method of abortion is the morning after pill. The morning after pill works as an emergency contraceptive, chiefly by preventing ovulation or fertilization. It may inhibit implantation. However, the morning after pill is ineffective once implantation has occurred, which means you can only use it within the first few days after intercourse. If you’re not sure if the morning after pill is right for you, feel free to call us now.
Mifepristone, also known as RU486 or the abortion pill, is another common method of abortion for early pregnancies. RU486 is a steroid that causes an abortion when taken orally. It is a combination of the drugs mifepristone and misoprostol. Generally it is administered in a doctor’s office, often over multiple visits. You may also need to make a follow-up visit to see if it was fully effective.
Surgical abortion methods are various, and include vacuum aspiration, suction curettage, dilation & evacuation, and partial-birth abortion. These are invasive medical procedures that require a doctor to insert surgical instruments into your uterus. They frequently cause discomfort and pain, and can also lead to infection and tissue scarring. For more details about these procedures and how they work, schedule an appointment at our center today.
Many abortion methods are only available early in pregnancy. If you are unsure how far along you are or you don’t know the details of the various methods, contact us today for a free appointment.
