Common Abortion Methods

We provide information on abortion, your options, and free limited pregnancy services.

the abortion pill

A medication abortion is FDA-approved up through 10 weeks after a woman's last menstrual period. The abortion pill is not an option for people with certain medical conditions, if the pregnancy is not viable, or if the pregnancy occurs outside of the uterus. 

It's important to rule out an ectopic pregnancy or a natural miscarriage and find out how far along you are via ultrasound. Conception calculators can only estimate a potential due date. Side effects from the abortion pill include cramping and contractions, heavy bleeding, fever, headaches, nausea and abdominal pain, blood clots, allergic reactions, infection, vomiting, diarrhea, hospitalization, and, in rare cases, death. Make an appointment for a free consultation to learn more about risks, side effects, and what you need to know before you decide.

The abortion pill goes by many names including missed period pills, at-home abortion, self-managed abortion, 10-week-after pills, medication, medical, or chemical abortion. It is not the same as emergency contraceptives. The FDA issued a warning about abortion by mail and new safety regulations. Your health and safety come first here - we do not provide or refer for abortion pills.


If you take the first pill and change your mind, it may be possible to continue your pregnancy. Contact us to learn more about abortion pill reversal options.

Aspiration  Abortion

Aspiration abortion procedures can be performed up to 13 weeks after a woman's last menstrual period (LMP). It is the most common early surgical abortion method and it is an outpatient procedure. Aspiration abortion is sometimes performed in the event of a medication abortion failure.

Dilation and Evacuation (D&E)

A D&E abortion is typically performed 13 weeks or more after a woman's last known period (LMP). It is the most common second-trimester surgical abortion method. Local anesthesia or sedation is commonly utilized. If you think you may be in your second trimester and are looking for options, contact us for a no-cost consultation. While we do not refer for or provide abortion services, we can give you the answers you need to make an informed choice. Contact us today to get started.
