Non-Surgical Abortion: Abortion Pill Astoria NY
For women who are under 8 weeks pregnant in Astoria, Jackson Heights Women’s Gynecological offers an alternative to surgical abortion. “Abortion by pill” is an option for women who are less than 56 days from their last menstrual periods. Some women prefer non-surgical abortion as an alternative to surgery and anesthesia.
Jackson Heights Women’s Gynecological offers Early Option Pill to patients who meet the criteria for this method. After blood work and vaginal ultrasound, counseling is given to explain the procedure and answer questions to help you decide if this procedure is right for you. Early Option Pill is administered in our office, followed 2 days later by another medication which the patient inserts vaginally at home. This second medication causes the uterus to expel the pregnancy tissue. Regardless of which method you choose, a follow-up visit is required at Jackson Heights Women’s Gynecological to ensure that the procedure was successful. In rare instances, a D&C may be necessary to remove any retained tissue.
We are certified by the Counsel of Gynecology and have over 30 years of experience. In addition, we have been accredited by the New York State Joint Commission's (JCAHO) Gold Seal of Approval-Office Based.
