If you are considering an abortion, it is important to make an informed decision. There are different abortion procedures based on how far along you are. We take the time to educate on the methods of abortion may be available to you, as well as any risks associated with the procedure.
The Different Types of Abortion
The two primary methods of abortion are:
- Medical Abortion: Uses RU-486 (commonly referred to as the abortion pill) or other types of chemical to terminate an early pregnancy. This method can be performed until you are up to 10 weeks pregnant. Medical abortion may require up to 3 office visits. The procedure is unsuccessful approximately 5-10% of the time requiring an additional surgical abortion to complete the termination.
If you have taken the first pill (mifepristone) in the RU-486 regimen, but not the second pill (misoprostol), the process may be reversible. If you are interested in reversing the process contact Abortion Pill Rescue at 877.558.0333 or contact online at abortionpillreversal.com
- Surgical Abortion: This is a procedure in which surgical instruments are used to empty the uterus, ending a pregnancy. There are different types of surgical procedures depending on how far into your pregnancy you are and like all surgical procedures there are certain health risks to consider.
Pacific Pregnancy Clinic offers pre-abortion screening. This is completed through lab grade pregnancy testing and ultrasound. (Statistics show that one in five pregnancies will end in a natural miscarriage.) A limited obstetrical ultrasound is performed to confirm a pregnancy, determine location of pregnancy (intrauterine/ectopic), detect fetal heartbeat, fetal age, and determine due date.
