We offer several options for abortions in addition to emergency contraception, and we invite you to learn as much as you can about these services so that you may make the decision that is right for you.
You can have a surgical abortion between the 4th and 16th week of your pregnancy. After an initial consultation, you will return for one of the three outpatient surgical procedures depending on the length of your pregnancy and your health history.
You can have a medication abortion up to the 9th week of pregnancy. Like a surgical abortion, this option requires an initial consultation and review of your health history. Different from surgical abortion, this option allows you to take medications and complete the abortion at home.
Emergency contraception, or the “morning after pill” is NOT a method of abortion. Rather, this is a back-up birth control method. Choice Medical Group (Now FPA Women’s Health) offers emergency contraception in clinic as well as prescriptions for emergency contraception as a back-up birth control method to our patients after their procedures.
Immediately following your surgical procedure, or at your 1-week medication abortion follow up appointment, you may opt to receive Depo-Provera which is a birth control shot. This one-time injection of birth control is effective for 12 weeks. This method of birth control may cause irregular bleeding and does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases or infections. Ask a Choice Medical Group (Now FPA Women’s Health) staff member for more information if you’re interested in this method.
