F.A.Q.

Frequently Asked

Is having an abortion safe?

Yes. Even minor complications are very rare, and our doctors are gynecologists who have decades of experience specializing in abortion care.

Can I get pregnant again after having an abortion?

You could become pregnant again right away. Abortion generally does not affect fertility. You should consider the day of the abortion as the first day of your period—ovulation normally occurs about 14 days later.

How do I know which anesthesia to choose?

General anesthesia is the best choice if you do not want to feel, hear, or remember anything during the procedure. The procedure lasts a few minutes.

Alternatively, Local anesthesia involves administering lidocaine into the cervix. This offers some numbing to the immediate area. You will be fully conscious during the procedure. You can drive yourself.

Finally, “twilight sleep” induces a light sedation via intravenous (IV) medication. The sedative will help you to relax during your procedure. However, you will be partially conscious and may feel discomfort.

Please note that twilight sleep and general anesthesia are available only in the Rockville and Baltimore offices.

Do I need a referral? Or do I need to see my doctor to confirm the pregnancy?

No. We will perform all the required tests and gather all the necessary information during your visit.

How do I know whether to choose an in-clinic abortion or abortion by pill?

This is a personal decision. The pill must be done early in pregnancy—up to 10 weeks (70 days) from the first day of your last period. The pill option is more involved than an in-clinic procedure, and will require a follow-up visit. By contrast, an in-clinic abortion is more efficient than a pill. Everything is usually completed in one visit, while follow-up visits are optional.

Does it hurt?

If under local anesthesia, you should expect moderate to strong cramping—similar to a bad period—during and immediately after the abortion. Twilight sleep relaxes you, but you may still feel cramping during the procedure. General anesthesia will ensure that you are fully asleep during the abortion; you will feel only some light cramping when you awaken. Twilight sleep and general anesthesia are available only in the Rockville and Baltimore facilities.

If you choose an abortion by pill, you should expect moderate to strong cramping after taking the medication at home.

How private and confidential is my visit?

Your appointment and all information about your health history and visit will be protected and kept completely confidential. We will not confirm your appointment by phone or email, other than to respond directly to an initial scheduling request. We will not release any information concerning you or your appointment without your permission. For ultimate privacy, you may also choose our Private VIP appointment option.

When can I go back to work?

Most people return to their usual activities the next day.
