Surgical Abortion

A surgical abortion is more invasive than a medical abortion. It is an in-clinic procedure that sometimes requires anesthesia. Learn what to expect before scheduling your abortion appointment with our pre-abortion assessment.

Our Pre-Abortion Assessment

If you receive a positive pregnancy test result at Oasis Medical, we will schedule you for a no-cost ultrasound. Ultrasound determines how far along you are (gestational age), whether you have miscarried, and the location of your pregnancy. This information will inform you about the available abortion procedures.

Types of Surgical Abortions

Which surgical abortion procedure you have is determined by the gestational age of the fetus. All types of surgical abortions include dilation of your cervix and extracting the contents of the pregnancy from your uterus.

The type of procedure you have is determined by the provider performing the procedure, what the facility is capable of handling, and what your gestational age is determined by ultrasound.

Risks Of Surgical Abortion

  • Perforation of the uterus
  • Damage to the cervix
  • Scar tissue from scraping
  • Infection
  • Hemorrhaging
  • Sepsis

The cost for a surgical abortion in Tennessee varies due to the provider, procedure, and gestational age.
