What to expect after your abortion
varies depending on what type of abortion you have and the gestational age of your pregnancy. An assistant will go over post-op instructions before the procedure and you will receive a written copy when you leave. You will be given information on what to expect and a 24-hour emergency phone number to reach Dr. Seletz. The doctor will perform an ultrasound immediately after the procedure to make sure the abortion is complete so you do not have to wait for an exam a few weeks later for reassurance. Indicated follow-up visits are done free of charge.
If your pregnancy is the result of a method failure, or if you would like a better method of contraception, then you can read about the different methods of birth control that are available as well as the effectiveness and the side effects of each one. Go to the site Abortion Clinics On-Line at www.gynpages.com and select "Ultimate Birth Control" to find comprehensive information about contraception. Then, when you come in, Dr. Seletz will help you choose which method is best for you.
