How much does an abortion cost?

The cost will depend on the type of abortion you get. The abortion pill may have a different cost than an in-clinic abortion. It will also depend on how far along your pregnancy is. The longer you’ve been pregnant, the more your abortion may cost.
Typical cost of abortion in Georgia:
Medication Abortion / Abortion Pill (within 10 weeks gestation): $350-$650
Suction Aspiration / Vacuum Abortion (6-12 weeks gestation): $600-$1000
Dilation and Curettage (13-16 weeks gestation): $850-$1600
Dilation and Evacuation (17-21 weeks gestation): $1500-$2100

What is the abortion pill?

In a medical abortion, a pharmaceutical agent (typically Mifepristone, also known as RU-486) is used to cause the death of the developing baby. A subsequent medication (typically Misoprostol) is used to cause the evacuation of the baby.

What are some pregnancy symptoms?
  • -Missed period. If you’re in your childbearing years and a week or more has passed without the start of an expected menstrual cycle, you might be pregnant. However, this symptom can be misleading if you have an irregular menstrual cycle.
  • Tender, swollen breasts.
  • Nausea with or without vomiting
  • Increased urination
  • Fatigue
  • Less obvious signs include moodiness, bloating, constipation, food aversion, light spotting, or mild cramping
What is an ectopic pregnancy?
In a normal pregnancy, the fertilized egg attaches to the lining of the uterus, but in an ectopic pregnancy, the fertilized egg implants and grows outside the main cavity of the uterus. The most common location for an ectopic pregnancy to occur is in the fallopian tube, and this type of ectopic pregnancy is called a tubal pregnancy. Sometimes, an ectopic pregnancy occurs in other areas of the body, such as the ovary, abdominal cavity or the lower part of the uterus (cervix), which connects to the vagina.
An ectopic pregnancy can’t proceed normally. The fertilized egg can’t survive, and the growing tissue may cause life-threatening bleeding, if left untreated. If you’ve had this type of pregnancy before, you’re more likely to have another. Having an ultrasound is the definitive way to make sure that your pregnancy is in the correct location. (info from mayo clinic website).

DPH Women’s Right to Know

How soon after sex can I know I'm pregnant?
Most doctors recommend that you wait until the first day of your missed period before taking a urine pregnancy test. This is usually about two weeks after conception. However, some tests are more sensitive than others and can be taken earlier.If you don’t know when your next period is due, do the test at least 21 days after you last had unprotected sex. On an ultrasound, a gestational sac can be seen as early as 4.5 weeks after your last period. A heartbeat can be detected as early as 5 to 6 weeks (though it might not be detected that early in all cases).
