Read this article for recommended health screenings you should take prior to getting an abortion procedure.

The abortion pill is FDA-approved through 10 weeks gestational age and can be accessed through a doctor or a local health clinic. 

What are the Recommended Health Screenings?

Abortion is like any other medical procedure and requires careful preparation and due diligence. In addition to a positive pregnancy test, a follow-up ultrasound is recommended to learn the following: 

  • Pregnancy’s gestational age
  • Viability
  • Location

Each of these details can affect the health of your pregnancy and determine if an abortion is even necessary. At AscentCare, we offer free, confidential ultrasounds where you can get the information you need to move confidently to your next step.

What Are All of My Pregnancy Options?

If your gestational age is more than 10 weeks, you are no longer eligible for a medication abortion and would require a surgical abortion. In the state of New York, it is legally permissible to undergo a surgical abortion within 24 weeks after fertilization.

The decision regarding your pregnancy is entirely up to you, but if you are interested in alternative options, parenting and adoption are other options available to you. 

If your income is below a certain level, New York Medicaid may cover many prenatal and postpartum healthcare costs for at least one year after birth.

If you’re interested in exploring adoption or parenting as an option, we can provide assistance in connecting you with local organizations, resources, or adoption agencies. 

How Much Do These Options Cost?

Multiple factors go into the cost of abortion. For example, facts such as gestational age, your insurance coverage, and any possible procedural follow-up costs like exams or medications typically range within $2000.
