What is surgical abortion?

This in-office abortion procedure uses manual dilation and suction aspiration to end a pregnancy.

This surgery is low-risk and usually takes about 15 minutes to complete.

You may be given a medication to slowly soften your cervix at least one hour before your abortion procedure. 

After the surgery is complete, a nurse will monitor you in our recovery room for at least 20 minutes before you are discharged.

You can expect to be at our clinic for about 3 to 5 hours on the day of your procedure.
