If You’re Considering Abortion,
Let’s Talk About It
There are several forms of abortion, which range in price and risk level. Before deciding on an abortion, it’s important that you review the different types of procedures, and just like other medical procedures, assess the costs, risks, and side effects of each one.
Plan B, or the “morning after pill,” is a high-dosage birth control pill that women can take within 72 hours after intercourse. It may end a pregnancy by preventing an egg from being released or inhibiting implantation of an embryo in the uterus.

RU 486 / abortion pill
The abortion pill or Ru 486 is a series of two medications that are used for an early medical abortion. The first pill will cut off the blood flow to the embryo and the second will induce labor. The second pill will cause severe cramps, bleeding, nausea and vomiting. It is possible that after these two pills, women will still need a surgical abortion to effectively complete the procedure.
There are several different types of surgical abortion procedures. You will need to know how far along you are in the pregnancy to determine which procedure is done. The limited obstetric ultrasound done at Thrive Orlando will be able to give you this information.
The most common procedure is the suction aspiration abortion done during the first 6-16 weeks of pregnancy. This involves numbing and opening the cervix, inserting a suction tube into the uterus, and then suctioning out the contents (fetus and placenta).
Dilation and evacuation (D & E) is a procedure done 16-24 weeks after your last period. This may take several days as the cervix will need to be opened over a period of time. Once the cervix is ready, the provider will insert a suction device and various surgical tools into the uterus to remove the pregnancy.
Side effects of surgical abortion may include bleeding, nausea, cramping and infection.
