Nationwide, the cost at health centers ranges from about $350 to $950 for abortion in the first trimester. The cost is usually more for a second-trimester abortion. Costs vary depending on how long you’ve been pregnant and where you go. Hospitals generally cost more.
There are two main types of abortion:
Medical Abortion in Brooklyn, The Bronx or Queens
Medication abortion, also called the abortion “pill,” can be taken up to 70 days (10 weeks pregnant). The “pill” (two drugs, mifepristone and misoprostol) is taken in two doses, one typically at a doctor’s office and the other at home.
Surgical Abortion in Brooklyn, The Bronx or Queens NYC
There are several types of surgical abortions. Suction aspiration, also called suction curettage, or vacuum aspiration abortion, is performed during the first 6 to 15 weeks gestation. Dilation and Evacuation (D&E) is another type of procedure typically done in later weeks. Both types have risks and side-effects and greatly vary depending on your gestation and health.
