All Illinois Abortion Clinics offer the option to terminate pregnancies from 5 weeks to 17.5 weeks in gestation with a D&C or a Surgical Abortion. This procedure is completed with vacuum aspiration or suction curettage and there are no incisions involved.
All our member clinics are AAAHC certified state of the art facilities with board-certified physicians and trained medical staff.
We accept most insurance plans and our insurance department would be pleased to assist you with your insurance coverage questions. Talk to us to see how we can help you through the process.
We recommend that patients be placed in twilight anesthesia for the duration of the procedure and not be awake at the time.
A patient who is 12 to 17.5 weeks gestation as determined by ultrasound is considered to be in the Second Trimester. The surgical abortion procedure for a second-trimester abortion is done in one day or on two consecutive dates depending on the medical history and gestation. There are no incisions and it is completed by D&C (Dilation & Curettage) or a D&E. Learn more about Second Trimester abortion here.
