We can see patients within the week that they call us for help.
Are the success rates for medical and surgical abortions different?
No, they are both more than 99 percent effective.
When do I pay for the procedure?
Regardless of insurance status, all patients pay us for the procedure before it takes place. We will submit bills to insurance companies for patients who have insurance. Oftentimes, insurance companies cover most of the cost of the procedure. We will reimburse you any money your insurance gives back to the price of your procedure. Unfortunately, as non-payment has previously been an issue at our practice, we do have to be paid for abortion procedures before we will perform them.
We do have a Freedom Fund to help self-paying patients afford care when they need it most. Generally, we can give patients who need it $125 toward the cost of their procedure.
How much do medical and surgical abortions cost?
Medical abortions, which are only available for women up to 10 weeks into their pregnancy, cost $410. Surgical abortions, for women up to 12 weeks, are $360. If your pregnancy is more than 12 weeks, please call our office to discuss prices.
Can I switch which type of abortion I want when I get to the office?
Yes. Especially because we need to better understand the timing of your pregnancy, women are always allowed to choose whether they want a medical or surgical abortion on the day of their appointment.
If I get an abortion, can I still get pregnant in the future?
Yes. More than 99 percent of women will not have any problem getting pregnant in the future because they got an abortion. In a very small number of cases (less than one percent), some women may be prone to an infection which could interfere with future fertility. Please talk to our doctors, rather than turning to the internet, to learn more about the real statistics and likelihood of this.
What if I am Rh-negative?
It is fairly common to be Rh-negative—15 percent of people are. Many women discover that they are Rh-negative during a pregnancy that needs to be terminated. If you are Rh-negative, we will help terminate your pregnancy and provide an injection of Rhogam for $60 that will help protect your future pregnancies.
Understanding your Rhesus (Rh) factor is important, because when a man and woman are either Rh-negative—or one is Rh-negative and the other is positive—the fetus can end up with a different status than the mother. When mothers are Rh-negative and the fetus is positive, a mother’s antibodies will attack the baby. Rhogam shots coat a fetus’s cells so that the mother’s body doesn’t recognize them, and doesn’t hurt them.
Are there protestors outside your medical office?
No. We are proud to offer personalized and private care, without the hassle of protestors yelling at or harassing our patients.
