Second Trimester abortion between 6 to 15 weeks is done by vacuum aspiration. Our doctors ask that your appointment be made at least 6 weeks from the first day of your last menstrual period. This is to be able to get a clear view on the ultrasound.

Important: If you are 14 weeks pregnant or more, and you have previously had a C-section, it is necessary that you have a diagnostic ultrasound prior to making your abortion appointment. This is to check for a condition called Placenta Previa. The ultrasound must be scheduled at a hospital or imaging center. Prior to making your appointment for abortion, please call us with the fax number of the facility you will be using so that we can fax a doctor's order for the ultrasound.
