In-Clinic Surgical Abortion
Aspiration/Suction - Up To 13 Weeks LMP
This surgical abortion is done early in the pregnancy up until 13 weeks after the woman’s last menstrual period. For very early pregnancies (4 to 7 Weeks LMP), a thin plastic tube is inserted into the uterus. It is then attached to a vacuum device which is used to suction out the embryo.
For later first trimester abortions, the cervix needs to be opened wider because the fetus is larger. This is done through vaginal medications and/or laminaria to soften the cervix prior to the abortion. During the procedure, the cervix is stretched open using dilator rods. A plastic tube is then inserted through the cervix and into the uterus, then attached to a vacuum device. The suction pulls apart the fetus and empties the uterus. A curette may also be used to scrape any remaining fetal parts and/or blood clots from the uterus.
Dilation and Evacuation (D&E) - 13 Weeks LMP And Up
D&E After 16 Weeks LMP
