A. If you decide to end a pregnancy, it is important to understand what abortion option is best for you. We offer two methods of pregnancy termination; a Surgical Abortion performed at Michigan Avenue Center for Health or the Abortion Pill, also known as the Medical Abortion. Medical Abortion is FDA approved up to 7 weeks of pregnancy and is only meant for early pregnancy termination. Surgical Abortion services are available from 5 weeks to 17.3 weeks (17 weeks 3 days) gestation. Gestation is anyways determined at Michigan Avenue Center for Health with an ultrasound.
A. A Medical Abortion uses two medications to complete a pregnancy termination. Mifepristone used together with another medicine called Misoprostol usually successfully ends a pregnancy. Patients must be willing to have a Surgical Abortion if the non-surgical does not terminate the pregnancy. Two visits to Michigan Avenue Center for Health are needed to safely administer and follow-up a Medical Abortion.
A. Surgical Abortion patients undergo twilight anesthesia. There is always a recovery period after the surgery in order to assure that the patient is fully awake and comfortable.
A. Michigan Avenue Center for Health offers a wide variety of birth control options including oral contraceptives, Depo Provera injections, Vaginal Ring, Intrauterine Device (IUD), diaphragm, cervical cap, and condoms.
