PENNSYLVANIA STATE LAW
The laws of Pennsylvania require all patients to receive physician counseling a minimum of 24 hours prior to having an abortion. When you call to make an appointment we will schedule a convenient time for you to talk to the physician prior to the abortion.
Women under the age of 18 are required by PA law to have the consent of a parent, legal guardian or judge prior to having an abortion. The parent or legal guardian must also receive physician counseling 24 hours before the abortion takes place.

Surgical abortion is a commonly performed surgery with a very low rate of complication. Most women are back to their normal activities the day after the surgery.
At Hillcrest Women’s Medical Center- Harrisburg all surgical abortions are performed by a licensed gynecologist with more than 25 years of experience. Abortions are done from approximately 5 weeks from the last menstrual period (LMP) to approximately 16 weeks LMP. The abortion procedure uses instruments to open the cervix and vacuum aspiration (suction) and instruments to empty the uterus. It takes anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes depending on the length of the pregnancy.
Prior to the surgery we will take a full health history, pregnancy test and blood work. You will receive an exam and an ultrasound when needed to determine the length of your pregnancy. Before the surgery you will meet privately with a counselor who will explain the procedure, review your after-care instructions, give you antibiotics, birth control and answer all of your questions. During the surgery a clinician will be with you at all times and she will accompany you to the recovery room where a registered nurse will monitor your progress and discharge you.
Local anesthesia is the administration of Lidocaine into the cervix, which reduces some discomfort. You will be given oral pain medication prior to the surgery but you will remain completely awake and should expect cramping during and immediately after the procedure. Have a light meal before your appointment. You are able to drive yourself home.

MEDICAL ABORTION by PILL (RU
486) - more information
Abortion by pill is a safe and effective way to end an early pregnancy by using medicine. You must be at least 18 years of age to receive a medical abortion.
This non-surgical process may be used up to 56 days (8 weeks) from the last period.
On the day of your appointment you will receive an ultrasound and laboratory work.
You will be given materials to read.
A counselor will meet with you to review all instructions, give you your medications and answer your questions.
You’ll meet with the doctor and then take the first pill (Mifeprex) in the office. Within 48 hours you will use the second pills (Misoprostol) at home. The combination of the two medicines will cause you to bleed and in most cases end the pregnancy within a few hours of using the second medicine at home.
You’ll return in 3 weeks to make sure everything worked properly.
