There are two main types of abortion
The abortion pill can be taken up to 70 days (10 weeks pregnant). The pill ( two drugs, mifepristone and misoprostol) is taken in two doses, one typically at a doctor’s office and the other at home.
There are several types of surgical abortions. Suction aspiration, also called suction curettage, or vacuum aspiration abortion, is performed during the first 6 to 16 weeks gestation. Dilation and Evacuation (D&E) is another type of procedure typically done in later weeks. Both types have risks and side-effects and greatly vary depending on your gestation and health.
If you are considering abortion, your first step is a pre-abortion assessment. Though we do not perform or refer for abortions at our center, we are here to equip you with information about this process. We never financially benefit from your decision and can discuss your options with absolutely no pressure. All pregnancy services are free and confidential.
When considering an abortion, your health and safety are incredibly important. This includes both physical and mental health. At Mosaic, we are here to help you sort through all of your questions and concerns. You will be able to sit down with one of our trained counselors to discuss information and resources regarding this pregnancy decision.
During your appointment, our staff will provide you with a free limited ultrasound to look for uterine pregnancy and fetal heartbeat. We will also talk with you about the different types of abortion for different stages of pregnancy. While we do not perform or refer for abortions at Mosaic Sexual Health Clinic, it is important learn about each procedure prior to moving forward, and each of our counselors are trained to provide you with helpful and accurate answers to your questions. These educational and informative services are offered free of charge.
