Types of Abortion

Abortion Pill

Medication abortion, also called the abortion pill, can be taken up to 70 days (10 weeks) of pregnancy. The pill ( two drugs, mifepristone and misoprostol) is taken in two doses, one typically at a doctor’s office and the other at home. To determine how far along you are and to talk to a nurse about your options and side-effects, make an appointment with Life Choices today.

Abortion Procedures

There are several types of surgical abortions.  Suction aspiration,  also called suction curettage, or vacuum aspiration abortion, is performed during the first 6 to 16 weeks gestation. Dilation and Evacuation (D&E) is another type of procedure typically done in later weeks. Both types have risks and side-effects that greatly vary depending on your gestation and health. If you are considered late-term and are still considering an abortion, make an appointment with Life Choices today to talk about your options.

Pre-Abortion Checklist

Are You Really Pregnant?

There are many reasons you may have a positive home test. 

Before making any decisions, know for sure you are pregnant and that the pregnancy is viable. 


It’s important to determine if the pregnancy is normal and if you are at risk for a natural miscarriage or ectopic (tubal) pregnancy to prevent any complications.

How Far Along Are You?

Abortion costs vary and depend on how far along you are, where you get a medical abortion or the type of abortion procedure. Most clinics require an ultrasound confirmation. 


Make an appointment for a free ultrasound today to determine how far along you are and what options are available to you.

Do You Have a Risk of Infection?

Not all abortion providers provide testing for STIs or STDs. Ruling out or treating an STI or STD is important because infections or serious complications can occur if the STD/STI isn’t treated before you undergo an abortion procedure.

At your initial appointment at Life Choices, we can also provide you with STI testing at no cost to you.
