What are the different types of abortion and abortion procedures?

No matter if you go to New Mexico, Kansas or Colorado abortion is abortion and there are two types of abortion: Surgical Abortion and Medical Abortion.

Surgical abortion procedures require you to leave Texas. These procedures are conducted in a doctor’s office. There are three main types of surgical abortion: Aspiration Abortion, Dilation and Evacuation Abortion (D&E Abortion), and D&E Abortion after Viability.

As with any surgical procedure, there are potential risks and side effects. The D&E Abortion after Viability is especially risky to the patient, as this procedure occurs 21-weeks after the last menstrual cycle.

Medical abortion is also known as “the abortion pill” or “abortion with pills”, most commonly referred to as an “at-home abortion.” This requires you to know exactly how many weeks you are into your pregnancy. The medication should only be taken when prescribed by a doctor and directly as prescribed.

Medical abortion involves two medications, Mifepristone and Misoprostol, which are taken in separate intervals. These drugs are approved by the Food and Drug Administration, however, there are also risks and side effects associated with this method.

What should I consider before taking the abortion pill in Texas?
  • Is the pregnancy viable
  • Is the pregnancy in the uterus or ectopic
  • How many weeks along is the pregnancy
  • All available options and resources for before, during, and after pregnancy or abortion

How do I know I'm pregnant? What is a medical verification of pregnancy?

“Am I pregnant?”—this is a great question to be asking yourself in this moment. It is critical to make decisions regarding your health with the most accurate information. You matter, your health matters, and you deserve to have the best care possible.

It is important and strongly encouraged to get medical verification of pregnancy that includes an ultrasound. This will be the most reliable pregnancy testing one can receive. Yes, a home pregnancy test is 99% accurate, but this is one answer you want a 100% accuracy. A home pregnancy test can sometimes be confusing and getting one is very public since you need to buy from a store in-person.

In addition to medically verifying your pregnancy, knowing exactly how many weeks you are into your pregnancy is vital information. Having a consultation with a medical professional will allow you a safe place to consider your choices. Please schedule a free private pregnancy test at our clinic today.

Is the pregnancy viable?

Did you know that nearly 25% of pregnancies end in miscarriage? Eighty percent of these occur in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. [1] An ultrasound can help confirm the pregnancy’s viability if you have a positive pregnancy test.

What is an ectopic pregnancy? Why could taking the abortion pill be a problem?

According to the medical industry an ectopic pregnancy is a pregnancy that happens outside of the uterus. This occurs when a fertilized egg implants in a structure that can’t support its growth. An ectopic pregnancy often occurs in the fallopian tube. The fallopian tube is a pair of structures that connect the ovaries and uterus.

The abortion pill is not prescribed to be effective for an ectopic pregnancy. Because an ectopic pregnancy can be life-threatening, you should seek medical verification of the pregnancy, expected or unexpected, as soon as you suspect you may be pregnant or if you have ectopic pregnancy symptoms.
