Procedures

  • Ultrasound is performed for each patient during your appointment. The initial ultrasound is to confirm the dating of the pregnancy. A follow-up ultrasound confirms successful treatment.
  • Medical abortion is an effective means of ending pregnancies less than nine weeks by taking medications, which avoids surgery.
  • Surgical abortion is the traditional method of ending a pregnancy. It is very safe and effective. It may be performed for any patient up to thirteen weeks gestation.
  • General anesthesia is the method of anesthesia in which you are “put to sleep”. This is available. Once you have discussed this with our clinician we will perform your procedure.
  • Sedation is a combination of sedation pills and a medication given by injection before the procedure. These medications combined promote relaxation and minimize any discomfort associated with the procedure.
  • Laminaria placement may be required the day before a surgical procedure to dilate the cervix.
  • Misoprostol Dilation Misoprostol is a drug that belongs to the prostaglandin family of drugs. It has been available for many years to treat stomach ulcers. Misoprostol can also soften the cervix and cause it to dilate, making a surgical procedure easier, safer and less uncomfortable.
  • Early Pregnancy Complications such as spontaneous miscarriage, fetal demise, FDIU.
  • Urine Pregnancy Test: A urine pregnancy test is performed for all patients.
  • The morning after pill is a medication taken within 72 hours after unprotected sex or a condom failure to prevent a pregnancy from occurring.
  • Blood Type: Regardless of your choice of procedure your blood type must verified. If your blood type is Rh negative you will receive either MICRhoGAM or RhoGAM. MICRhoGAM will be administered to all patients under 12 weeks gestation and patients who are over 12 weeks gestation will receive full RhoGAM dose.
