Finding out how far along you are will determine which abortion procedure is available to you and how much it will cost. An ultrasound is the most accurate way to find out how far along you are.
Types of abortion procedures include:
- Methotrexate (MTX)
- Abortion Pill / Mifeprex / Mifepristone (RU-486)
- Suction Dilation and Curettage (Suction D&C)
- Dilation and Evacuation (D&E)
- Dilation and Extraction (D&X) / Intact Dilation and Extraction (IDE)
- Intra-cardiac Injection
During your visit, you will find out more information on the different abortion procedures and what options are available to you. We can also provide accurate information about Emergency Contraception (frequently referred to or known as the Morning After Pill) within 72 hours of intercourse.
What are the risks?
Multiple risks accompany any abortion procedure. It is important that you get all your facts and you are well educated about your choice. Although A Woman’s Place Medical Clinic does not perform abortions, we can provide a medical care plan that supports your specific needs. We provide accurate information and support, as we have no financial gain from your decision.
Schedule an appointment to help with your decision.
If you are considering an abortion, you should receive testing to ensure you do not have an undiagnosed STD/STI, which would put you at a higher risk of developing Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID). PID can lead to serious complications including infertility, ectopic pregnancy, abscess formation, and chronic pelvic pain.
Florida law also requires an ultrasound exam prior to having an abortion procedure.
We see hundreds of clients each year. It is our experience that a high percentage of them describe symptoms consistent with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) such as depression, guilt, regret, increased drug and alcohol abuse. These side-effects may arise days, months, or even years later.
