Thank you for making your online appointment. If you have any additional questions or concerns prior to your appointment, please call us at 626.798.0706. We are dedicated to assisting you in overcoming any obstacles that may impact access to care.

We’re here to support you at your upcoming abortion appointment. At your appointment, you will speak with a health care professional about your medical history, all of your options, and you will be encouraged to ask questions.

Information regarding your visit:

Your visit will last between 3-5 hours.

You will receive the following services during your visit:

  • Vaginal or abdominal ultrasound
  • Lab work including urine test and blood draw
  • Education session
  • Birth control consultation
  • The abortion procedure and will spend time in our recovery room

Please make sure you eat before your appointment. For this appointment, there are no restrictions on food.

If choosing conscious sedation (mild sedation), you cannot drive yourself home, so if you do not have a companion to drive you, you must arrange for a ride share, public transportation, or a taxi to and from the appointment.

Patients choosing local anesthesia are able to drive home but are encouraged to bring a driver if possible.

We ask that you not use over-the-counter medications, alcohol, or street drugs for at least 24 hours prior to your appointment.

Any support person brought to your appointment MUST have a photo ID if you wish for them to be part of your visit.

Please continue to take any prescribed medication as directed.

Ensure you have enough menstrual pads at home to last for at least two weeks of bleeding. Please wear loose and comfortable clothing and underwear that can hold a menstrual pad to your appointment.

It is preferred and helpful that children do not accompany you to this appointment due to the long visit length. If you must be accompanied by children, a separate responsible adult is required at all times to care for the child in the waiting area.

What to bring to your appointment:

  • A photo ID
  • A list of all current medications you are taking
  • Insurance card (if applicable)
