Are you considering a medical abortion? A medical abortion is one that is brought about by taking medications—usually pills—that will end a pregnancy. The alternative is surgical abortion. The drugs used for a medical abortion are not the same as the morning-after pill.
Before taking the abortion pill, you should understand what it is, how it works, and what it could mean to your health.
Read on and make an appointment. Our staff will be happy to discuss with you the different abortion procedures—both medical and surgical – confirm your pregnancy and advise you on your options based on how far along you are in your pregnancy.
Before any abortion can be done, you must confirm that you are pregnant and determine how long you have been pregnant. A medical abortion is an option up to 10 weeks after the start of your last menstrual period. Make an appointment to receive a pregnancy test. You may also qualify for an ultrasound to determine how many weeks you have been pregnant.
In the state of Texas, an ultrasound is required by law before getting an abortion—whether it is a medical or surgical abortion. We can explain to you the requirements of the law and what it means to you if you are planning to visit an abortion clinic in Houston.
