Abortion Information | Free Women’s Center in St. Louis, MO

THERE ARE TWO MAIN TYPES OF ABORTION.

Medical Abortion

Medication abortion also called the abortion pill, can be taken up to 70 days (10 weeks pregnant). The pill ( two drugs, mifepristone and misoprostol) is taken in two doses, one typically at a doctor’s office and the other at home.

Surgical Abortion

There are several types of surgical abortions. Suction aspiration, also called suction curettage, or vacuum aspiration abortion, is performed during the first 6 to 16 weeks gestation. Dilation and Evacuation (D&E) is another type of procedure typically done in later weeks. Both types have risks and side-effects and greatly vary depending on your gestation and health.

If you are considering abortion, your first step is a pre-abortion assessment. We never financially benefit from your decision and can discuss your options with absolutely no pressure. All services are free and confidential.
