Abortion Services [Spanish | Chinese]

A-Z Women’s Center currently provides abortions up to 18.6 weeks gestation based on ultrasound examination. All patients must have an ultrasound (sonogram), which is included in the basic fee. An ultrasound is necessary to confirm the pregnancy and insure proper calculation of the gestational age. All doctors date pregnancies from the first day of your LAST MENSTRUAL PERIOD, not from the date of conception.

DISCLAIMER: The Pregnancy Calculator above is an estimation of weeks from reported last normal menstrual period and does not constitute medical advice. A missed period does not necessarily mean that you are pregnant, and having a period does not mean you are not pregnant. Only an exam, pregnancy test, or ultrasound by a physician can confirm pregnancy and approximate length of pregnancy. The calculator should be used as a guide only and should not be relied upon for weeks of pregnancy, conception date, or due date.

RU486 | Abortion Pill

Medical (non-surgical) abortions commonly known as RU486 can be performed on patients who are up to nine weeks pregnant (dated from the first day of your last menstrual period). This procedure involves giving a series of medications over a couple of days to induce a miscarriage. On the first day of treatment, a patient is given Mifeprex (Mifepristone).

Office Requirements for the Abortion Pill:
» Must live in or surrounding area of Las Vegas
» Must have a valid Las Vegas ID or driver's license
» Must be over the age of 18 years old
» Must take off of work or school for 2 consecutive days

You will take home 3 cyctotec pills that will get inserted 18-24 hours later, the patient is given Cytotec (Misoprostol) pills to insert into the vagina. The combination of these two medications causes a miscarriage. A transvaginal ultrasound examination must be performed during each office visit to evaluate the effects of these medications. A small percentage of patients (about 1 in 100) will still need to have a vacuum aspiration and curettage (suction D&C) due to retained tissue. This procedure requires extra time, counseling, at least 2 office visits with ultrasounds, and doctor examinations.

About 1 in 100 patients will need to have a surgical rescue.

First Trimester Abortions

First Trimester Abortions are performed by vacuum aspiration and curettage on pregnancies from 6 to 11.6 weeks since the last menstrual period. The length of pregnancy is confirmed by ultrasound. The abortion may be performed under local anesthesia (awake) or intravenous medication could be administered for anxiety and pain control. Nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is available for additional relaxation and pain relief. In order to have intravenous medication, you must have some other adult to assist you in safely getting home. You will not be able to drive or work for 24 hours after the intravenous medication.

The average patient spends about 2 hours at our office, mostly completing forms, and having the ultrasound and laboratory tests. The actual abortion procedure usually takes only 5 minutes. Post-operatively, patients spend about 15 to 30 minutes in the recovery room. We achieve this short stay by scheduling individual appointments throughout the day, instead of group appointments scheduled all at the same time.

Second Trimester Abortions

Second Trimester Abortions are performed on patients who are between 12 and 18.6 weeks pregnant. The length of pregnancy is accurately determined by ultrasound. Patients less than 18.6 weeks pregnant are done in one day.

Our center is uniquely qualified to manage genetics and fetal abnormality cases. Often, these women have a desired and planned pregnancy. However, thru various laboratory and ultrasound testing, a severe abnormality in the fetus is discovered or the woman is found to have a medical condition that makes the pregnancy unusually hazardous.

Our fees for genetic abnormality and maternal medical indications is determined on a case-by-case basis.
