Terminating a pregnancy is not an easy decision. At Surgery of Tomorrow, LLC, in the Midwood neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York City, the highly trained team offers surgical pregnancy termination procedures in a discrete, caring environment. To explore your options, call the office to set up a confidential consultation or book your appointment online.
The team at Surgery of Tomorrow, LLC, trusts you to make the right choice regarding your pregnancy, your health, and your unique situation. You may terminate a pregnancy with a medical or surgical procedure, including dilation and curettage with suction.
The option you choose depends on your medical history, the length of the pregnancy, and your preference.
Medical pregnancy termination is when you take a medication to expel the contents of your uterus. This option is available from five weeks from the first day of your last period up until the first day of the ninth week.
You take the medication orally, vaginally, or with an injection. The pregnancy terminates on its own, but it may take a few days, and you can’t be sure of the exact time.
Expect side effects of bleeding and cramping. Some women have other uncomfortable symptoms, too, such as vomiting or chills. The symptoms shouldn’t last more than 24 hours, however. If they do, contact Surgery of Tomorrow, LLC, right away.
Dilation and curettage with suction procedures clear out the contents of your uterus. During the dilation portion of the procedure, your uterus is opened – or dilated. Curettage is when the surgeon removes tissue from the uterus with an instrument called a curette.
You may undergo dilation and curettage (D&C) following a miscarriage, after a vaginal delivery if you’ve retained placenta, or as a method of first-trimester elective abortion.
Surgical pregnancy termination, such as with a dilation and curettage with suction, offers certain advantages:
Medical pregnancy termination can be less invasive and more private.
