Abortion up to 24 weeks
On the first day dilators will be placed in the cervix to gently and slowly open the cervix overnight. You will return the next day to have the procedure. This is the safest and most comfortable way to perform a surgical abortion after 14 weeks.
In some cases, especially after 20 weeks, the surgical abortion may be done in a 3 step procedure in which dilators are placed on the first and second days and the procedure finished on the third day.
Surgical Abortion Follow-up Care
After your surgical abortion a follow-up visit is very important. You must come in for a post-procedure visit 2 to 3 weeks after the abortion. There is no charge for this visit.
