PPMH offers both in-clinic abortion and the abortion pill.
Surgical abortion (From 4 to 19 weeks, 6 days from last menstrual period.) - Most patients choose conscious sedation to make them more comfortable.
Medication abortion (Up to 9 weeks from last menstrual period.) - There is no surgery or anesthesia. Patients take certain medications at the health center and complete the termination in the privacy of their home. Medication abortion is a safe early abortion option.
Abortions are very common. In fact, more than 1 out of 3 women in the U.S. have an abortion by the time they are 45 years old. If you are trying to decide if abortion is the right choice for you, you probably have many things to think about. Learning the facts about abortion may help you in making your decision.
