Surgical Abortion

surgical abortion

A surgical abortion is one of the safest surgical procedures in the United States. During a surgical abortion, the cervix is gradually dilated and the contents of the uterus are gently removed using suction and a surgical instrument called a curette. The procedure takes about 5-7 minutes. You can expect to feel mild to moderate cramping and pressure.

Although we cannot legally provide abortions at this time we support your choices and are here to answer any questions. We are a licensed, medical staff who will always provide you with medically accurate information about abortion.

Should you need medical attention after an abortion performed out-of-state, our licensed board-certified doctors are available to provide follow-up care in a supportive and confidential setting.
