abortion pill

Abortion is defined as the termination of pregnancy by various methods. At its root, to abort simply means “to stop,” but the word abortion has come to be commonly associated with induced abortion. Abortion is a medical procedure that removes the fetus from the uterus. When it happens naturally, it’s called a spontaneous abortion, also known as miscarriage. When it happens artificially, it’s called induced abortion.Abortion can have immediate side effects and/or long-term physical and emotional consequences. It is important to understand all the facts so you can make an informed decision.

There are different types of abortion women can choose from in Castro Valley. However, the options available to your situation will be determined by how far along you are into the pregnancy. During the first trimester, you will usually have the option of having a chemical (pill) abortion procedure or a surgical abortion procedure. Chemical abortions are only available up to ten weeks gestation.  It can be dangerous to take the abortion pill if you are beyond 10 weeks pregnant.

Before exploring your options, you will need an ultrasound to determine the location of the pregnancy (ectopic vs. inside the uterus), to determine if the pregnancy is viable (growing normally or miscarrying), and for accurate pregnancy dating (how many weeks/days along).
