First Trimester Abortion 5 to 12 weeks

In the first trimester abortion a surgical abortion procedure from 5 to 12 weeks of your last menstrual period (LMP) can be provided in just one office visit.

First trimester abortion is a very safe, 3 minute procedure with anesthesia. For over 37 years we have provided compassionate, patient-centered care in a warm and supportive environment. We are committed to the highest standards in medical care. Our doctors are Board- Certified OB/GYNs with over 50 years combined experience.

What to Expect

As soon as you walk through our doors you will be greeted by a kind, caring staff member.

Your next step is to have an ultrasound to determine the precise length of pregnancy. You will then receive lab work. After your lab work is completed, you will have a confidential counseling session, and if you choose, family and friends are welcome to participate.

Our staff members are well trained to tailor each session to the specific needs of each patient. Your private session is designed as a time to exchange information and express any concerns or feelings you might be experiencing.

You will have an opportunity to discuss any questions you have with the doctor.

Prior to the surgical abortion procedure, you will have your choice of sedation. We offer two options for sedation – twilight sedation and local anesthesia.

Twilight Sedation
This is a good option for those patients who want to be comfortable and relatively unaware of the procedure.

Local Anesthesia
The local option is for those patients looking for a very light administration of medication.

A first trimester abortion surgery is a very safe and simple procedure and lasts only a few minutes. Depending on the length of pregnancy, the procedure takes between 3 and 10 minutes.

Afterward, you will be brought into our recovery room where our nurses will care for you. At that time you will have something to eat and drink. A female family member or friend is welcome to be with you at this time. You will be given post-operative instructions, medications, and the birth control option of your choice.

All of us at Presidential Women’s Center would like to thank you for placing your trust in us for your reproductive healthcare.

We respect that some patients value a more private setting and we can accommodate these patients by offering a private waiting and recovery room for family and friends.  [Private Abortion]
