SURGICAL ABORTION
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 our office, all surgical abortions are performed by a licensed gynecologist with more than 25 years of experience. Abortions are performed from approximately 5 weeks from the last menstrual period (LMP) to approximately 17 weeks LMP. The abortion procedure uses instruments to open the cervix and vacuum aspiration (suction) and instruments to empty the uterus. It takes 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 usually an ultrasound 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.There are three levels of anesthesia available:

1. 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. You are able to drive yourself after the procedure.

2. Twilight sleep or IV sedation is a light sedation administered by an anesthesiologist. It relaxes you but you remain conscious. You are awake and aware of your surroundings. Patients respond differently to twilight sleep so we do not know exactly what you may feel but it will help with the discomfort. Twilight sleep is restricted for some patients due to weight, age and other factors. If you choose twilight sleep you may not have anything to eat, drink or smoke from midnight the night before and you need someone to drive you home. Leave valuables and jewelry at home.

3. General Anesthesia is the most popular anesthesia choice. IV medication is administered by the anesthesiologist and you are given just enough anesthesia so that you do not experience any pain for the few minutes it takes to perform the abortion. You will not feel anything during the surgery and will awaken in the recovery room with the nurses after the abortion is complete. In order to safely administer the general anesthesia you may not have anything to eat drink or smoke after midnight the night before. You will need someone to accompany you who can drive you home. Leave valuables and jewelry at 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.

The pill has a small rate of failure. If surgery or additional medicine is required to complete the process, there is no extra charge if performed in our office.
