About Abortion

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 STD’s

Abortion procedures and their associated costs are determined by how far along you are in your pregnancy. To understand what type of procedure you may have, 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 would be necessary. A surgical abortion is a 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.

Adoption has changed a lot in this generation. You have lots of choices with adoption. Today there are adoption plans in which you can know your child and be a part of your child’s life. You can have the peace of knowing your child is loved and cared for by the couple you choose. If you choose not to have an open adoption there are also closed adoption options.

At Hope Women’s Center, we offer peer counseling and referrals to help you find the right adoption agency to meet your needs.
