Medical/Non-Surgical Abortion: Abortion Pill
We provide the Medical Abortion pill procedure up to 12 weeks gestation Monday through Saturday with evening hours available. This abortion procedure is minimally invasive to your privacy and is completed the safety and privacy of your own home. Our expert and professional staff are available 24/7 to support you through the entire process all the way through the routine post procedure check-up.
We also provide surgical abortions up to 24 weeks under the total medical care of the most experienced board certified OBGYNs and anesthesiologist in the state of New Jersey. Patients have the option of local anesthesia, conscious sedation or general anesthesia.
Other providers (including web providers) may prescribe you the abortion pill, but they DO NOT have their own medical staff to provide 24/7 total care in case of an adverse effect (response?) or emergency. Women’s Choice provides this service 24/7 with the most experienced and leading experts of OB-GYN physicians in the state of New Jersey. MAKE SURE you confirm that you will be provided with complete and total continuity of care through your procedure or if you will be referred to a local emergency room or other unaffiliated OBGYN in case of an emergency with extra costs and greater inconvenience to you.
When You Arrive At Women’s Choice
A receptionist will greet you and ask you to complete a medical history form. After a review of your chart, you will be brought to the laboratory where you will leave a urine specimen in order for your pregnancy to be confirmed. A small amount of blood will be drawn to test for anemia and to determine your RH factor.
One of our physicians will perform an ultrasound to establish the size of your pregnancy.
A qualified peer counselor will then explain the abortion procedure to you. You will be given the opportunity to ask questions and to discuss your feelings and concerns about your decision. The counselor will give you post-operative instructions and discuss risks and complications with you. She will also be happy to talk about birth control methods that are available to you.
In the operating room, you will be attended to by a nurse, an Anesthesiologist, and a Board Certified Gynecologist. Once your procedure is completed, you will rest in the recovery room. After approximately 30 minutes, you will be discharged by an RN.
The Morning- After Pill
Emergency contraception, commonly called “the morning-after pill” can be used to
prevent pregnancy after having sex without birth control or if a birth control method has failed. It is an option for women who have had unprotected intercourse and do not wish to become pregnant.
You are a candidate for emergency contraception if you have had unprotected intercourse within the last 72 hours. If used within 72 hours after sex without birth control , emergency contraception can be very effective. A woman with a history of blood clots, high blood pressure, or cancer of the breast, uterus, or ovaries, may not be considered a candidate for emergency contraception.
