Most abortions occur during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.
The most common abortion during this stage is a suction aspiration or vacuum aspiration abortion. This procedure is done between 6-12 weeks after the last menstrual period. The cost ranges from $480 to $650.
The abortion pill
The abortion pill or mifepristone (Mifeprex or RU 486) is used in early, chemical abortions. The procedure involves a series of two different medications that must be taken within 49 days or 7 weeks from the first day of your last menstrual period. Mifeprex has been approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) for use up to 49 days (7 weeks) after the first day of the woman’s last menstrual period. However, it is often used up to 63 days (9 weeks).
The first pill prevents the progesterone in your body from working, shutting off the blood supply to the embryo. Two days later you will be required to return to the same medical facility for the second pill, which is prostaglandin. This pill induces labor. Severe cramping, bleeding, nausea and vomiting should be expected. A final visit to the medical facility where you obtained the medications is needed to ensure the abortion has gone to completion. The cost ranges from $400-$650
Between 5-8 % of women having a chemical abortion will need a surgical procedure to end their pregnancy or stop heavy bleeding. If an additional procedure is done additional costs can range from $480-650.
Late stage abortions
In later stages as the fetus grows the procedure becomes more complex.
Dilation and Curettage (D$C) is done between 13-16 weeks and the cost ranges from $1200-$1600.
Dilation and Evacuation (D&E) is done between 17-21 weeks. The cost ranges between $1500-$2100.
