Pregnancy is dated from day one of a patient's last menstrual period. An ultrasound and exam by doctor will be performed to verify pregnancy age. We offer surgical abortion services from 7 weeks up to 14 weeks from the first day of the last menstrual period. Vacuum aspiration, the most modern and by far the safest method, is used. We strive to keep discomfort at a minimum.

Our center offers sedation which provides better pain relief than other centers in the state.

The fee for surgical abortion service includes lab work, patient education, ultrasound, pelvic exam, all medications used for the procedure, and a follow-up appointment if seen within six weeks. Additional prescriptions may be written.

• Private abortion appointments available. Please call for specific dates, times, and fees.
