What you need to know if you think you’re pregnant…

  • Do you have a viable pregnancy?
  • How far along is your pregnancy? You need to know what type of abortion you can have.

An OB limited ultrasound provides this information.  Contact us to schedule appointments for free pregnancy testing and limited ultrasound.  Ultrasounds are scheduled after women have a positive test in one of our centers.

Is abortion legal in Oklahoma?

Abortion is not legal in Oklahoma except when necessary to preserve the life of the mother. The first step in knowing if you need an abortion is an ultrasound to see if your pregnancy is viable.

Can I get in trouble if I seek an abortion?

No. Oklahoma does not allow the punishment of a woman seeking an abortion. Oklahoma law does prohibits the performance and aiding and abetting (assistance of, or encouragement of) receiving an abortion, except when necessary to save a pregnant woman’s life.

What if I have a tubal or ectopic pregnancy?

A tubal or ectopic pregnancy occurs when the fertilized egg attaches in a place other than inside the uterus. Most cases occur in the fallopian tube and are sometimes called tubal pregnancies. The fallopian tubes are not designed to hold a growing embryo. A tubal or ectopic pregnancy cannot develop properly and must be treated. An ectopic pregnancy happens in 1 out of 50 pregnancies.

Though medical professionals may call the procedure to end a tubal or ectopic pregnancy an abortion for medical coding and charting purposes, legally it is not considered an abortion. If you have had an ultrasound showing an ectopic pregnancy, or suspect you have one, you should seek medical attention immediately, it can be a life threatening condition.

The first step before making an abortion decision is having your pregnancy confirmed by ultrasound. Call or text 405-531-9011 us to schedule an appointment today.


RU486, Mifepristone: (Abortion Pill) – Within 10 weeks
This drug is only approved for use in women up to the 70th day after their last menstrual period. The procedure usually requires three office visits. On the first visit, the woman is given pills to cause the death of the embryo. Two days later, if the abortion has not occurred, she is given a second drug which causes cramps to expel the embryo. The last visit is a follow up limited ultrasound to determine if the procedure has been completed.

RU486 will not work in the case of an ectopic pregnancy. This is a potentially life-threatening condition in which the embryo lodges outside of the uterus, usually in the fallopian tube. If not diagnosed early, the tube may burst, causing internal bleeding and in some cases, the death of the woman.

Manual Vacuum Aspiration: up to 7 weeks after last menstrual period (LMP)
This surgical abortion is done early in the pregnancy up until 7 weeks after the woman’s last menstrual period. A long, thin tube is inserted into the uterus. A large syringe is attached to the tube and the embryo is suctioned out.
Suction Curettage: between 6 to 14 weeks after LMP
This is the most common surgical abortion procedure. Because the baby is larger, the doctor must first stretch open the cervix using metal rods. Opening the cervix may be painful, so local or general anesthesia is typically needed. After the cervix is stretched open, the doctor inserts a hard plastic tube into the uterus, and then connects this tube to a suction machine. The suction pulls the fetus’ body apart and out of the uterus. The doctor may also use a loop-shaped knife called a curette to scrape the fetus and fetal parts out of the uterus. (The doctor may refer to the fetus and fetal parts as the “products of conception.”).
Dilation and Evacuation (D&E): between 13 to 24 weeks after LMP
This surgical abortion is done during the second trimester of pregnancy. At this point in pregnancy, the fetus is too large to be broken up by suction alone and will not pass through the suction tubing. In this procedure, the cervix must be opened wider than in a first trimester abortion. This is done by inserting numerous thin rods made of seaweed a day or two before the abortion. Once the cervix is stretched open the doctor pulls out the fetal parts with forceps. The fetus’ skull is crushed to ease removal. A sharp tool (called a curette) is also used to scrape out the contents of the uterus, removing any remaining tissue.
