If you are pregnant and considering an abortion, it’s important for you to do these three things:

1. Verify your pregnancy
2. Get an Ultrasound to know how far along you are
3. Test for STDs

Abortion procedures and their associated costs are determined by how far along are in your pregnancy. This information is critical in your research as you make the decision for what’s best for you.

Hope Women’s Center provides lab-quality pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, and STD testing by medical staff at no charge to our patients. Be prepared. Be informed. Schedule an appointment today at Hope Women’s Center.

Abortion Pill (Medical Abortion)

Medical or non-surgical abortion uses RU-486 or other types of chemicals to terminate an early pregnancy. This method is used up to 49 days after a woman’s last menstrual period. The gestational age must be determined before getting any of these medicines. This process may involve up to 4 office visits and may require a surgical procedure if the medical abortion is incomplete. Make an appointment with the medical staff at Hope Women’s Center to learn more about medical abortion.

Surgical Abortion

If you’re not a candidate for a medical abortion or if the medical abortion fails, a surgical abortion will be necessary. A surgical abortion is an invasive procedure which ends a pregnancy by emptying the uterus (or womb) using surgical instruments. There are different types of surgical abortion procedures and different methods depending on how far along you are. Make an appointment with the medical staff at Hope Women’s Center to learn more about surgical abortion.

Any medical or surgical procedure comes with risks. At Hope Women’s Center, we want you to know your options and the risks associated with them.
