What types of abortion exist?

There are two types of abortion- an abortion pill and a surgical abortion.  The abortion pill can be taken from home and is used before 10 weeks or 70 days since the first day of your last period. [1] A surgical abortion requires you to go for a medical procedure.


Can I get the Abortion Pill for free?

Most abortion pills are not free and can cost anywhere from $50-$1,000. Women should be careful about where they obtain abortion pills.


My friend has extra Abortion Pills, can I take her pills?

It is important to only take pills that have been prescribed to you personally. Although the pills are available to you, you should still speak with a medical professional about your pregnancy specifically. We are here for you and can offer you a free limited obstetrical ultrasound to help determine if your pregnancy is viable. Alternatives Medical Clinic does not prescribe or refer for abortion services, but can help determine how far along you are, whether the pregnancy is viable, and what your options are.


What if I had a positive pregnancy test, but am bleeding and cramping? Should I still take Abortion Pills?

A variety of factors can cause bleeding during your first trimester of pregnancy. Light intermittent bleeding with bilateral cramping (like menstrual cramps) is sometimes expected. However, before taking an abortion pill, you should see a medical professional for an ultrasound to verify that your pregnancy is viable and that you are not experiencing any complications, such as an ectopic pregnancy. Alternatives does not provide treatment for miscarriages or ectopic pregnancies. If you are having symptoms of concern, please seek prompt medical treatment at an emergency room.


When looking at the abortion pill as an option, it’s important that you seek medical assistance so you receive the right education and are aware of what adverse effects to watch out for.
