The Morning After Pill

The Morning After Pill is another name for emergency contraceptive pills. Emergency contraception works to prevent or end a pregnancy by preventing ovulation, preventing fertilization, or by preventing implantation. If fertilization has already occurred, the pill may cause a very early abortion.

Emergency contraception does not prevent or protect you from sexually transmitted infections or diseases, and may cause short-term side effects. Before taking the pill, contact us to learn the facts and how emergency contraceptives can affect your health.

The Abortion Pill, RU-486

The Abortion Pill is used to end an early pregnancy up to 10 weeks after conception. This medical abortion involves two different medications taken over several days to end a pregnancy.

The Abortion Pill can have serious side effects and complications, including heavy bleeding and severe infection. Before taking the pill, contact us to learn the facts and how this pill can affect your health.

Surgical Abortion

Surgical abortions are minor surgeries that end a pregnancy by surgically removing the baby through the uterus. In-clinic or hospital abortion procedures require a health professional with specialized training, and the type of surgery depends on how many weeks of pregnancy have passed.

Before you make a decision to have an abortion, contact us to learn about the procedures, potential risks, and possible physical and emotional side effects of abortion.
