Pregnancy Termination (Up to 12 Weeks) in Chicago
Whether due to an unplanned pregnancy or a medical or personal issue, All Women’s Medical Center provides pregnancy termination for Chicago-area patients in their first trimester only. During a pregnancy termination, all pregnancy tissue, including the fetus and placenta (afterbirth), is removed from the patient’s uterus. Our clinic offers both surgical and non-surgical procedures. Pregnancy termination, or an abortion, is never an easy decision to make no matter what the reason. From your first consultation to any follow-up appointments after your procedure, you can expect to be treated with respect and personalized care from our experienced, understanding staff. Only you know what’s right for you, and your health and well-being are always among our top concerns.
Surgical Abortion Procedures During the First Trimester
Surgical abortions, also referred to as suction aspiration abortions, are available up to the first 12 weeks (first trimester) of your pregnancy only. Surgical abortions are a one-day outpatient procedure using local anesthesia with minimal recovery time. Your entire visit – from discussing your available options to providing a vaginal ultrasound and pelvic exam to determine your pregnancy stage to completing the procedure and allowing you recovery time afterward – should take about three hours.
Medical Abortions/Abortion Pills Up to 10 Weeks Only
A medical abortion is a non-surgical abortion procedure that can be done here for pregnant women up to 10 weeks only. Patients may choose this option as soon as they discover they’re pregnant up to 10 weeks after their last period began. Medical abortions/abortion pills don’t present any risks for future pregnancies and typically see a high success rate. While many patients prefer having a non-invasive option available to them, it should be noted that a medical abortion may not be recommended for every patient. Please contact All Women’s Medical Center with any questions or concerns you may have regarding our pregnancy termination options in Chicago.
