The Early Options Model for Early Abortion

We are women family doctors who created this website to provide women with the most up-to-date information on early abortion methods. We believe that all women should be able to end an early pregnancy utilizing the most advanced medical approaches in a private, supportive, and comfortable environment while being treated with respect and without judgment.

We created this website to provide you with accurate information about how to end an early pregnancy.  When you look on the internet, it’s hard to know what information you can trust.  Our site gives you straight answers to common questions.  Our belief is that women deserve the best medical care possible in this situation.

We are part of a movement to make ending early pregnancy part of “normal” medical care.  We feel the system of abortion clinics is out of date, and early abortion methods should be offered in regular family practice offices.  In New York City, our practice called Early Options has been a pioneer in this new approach to medical care.  There are other practices around the country headed by women family doctors with a similar philosophy.

Many women are unaware that there are two non surgical methods that are best for ending early pregnancy: the Manual Aspiration procedure, and the Abortion Pill.  These methods are gentle to the body, and do not cause problems for future pregnancy.  There is no scarring because there is no electric suction or sharp instruments. We help compare your options to help you make a better decision.

We help you to understand how early pregnancy is different.  It is easiest to end a pregnancy between 5-10 weeks, before the pregnancy has a chance to develop.  Manual Aspiration can also be used to 13 weeks of pregnancy at the doctor’s discretion.

We’ve also included answers to the most common questions that women have after ending an early pregnancy.  You can learn about what to expect, and what is normal.  It can help you to learn about what questions to ask if you need to call the doctor.

We hope this information is helpful to you, and wish you the best with your decision and in finding the best medical care.
