Late Trimester Abortion Care


If you are 20 weeks or later into your pregnancy, we can still see you regardless of your medical history, background, or fetal indications at our office. After 29 weeks it is a case by case basis at the discretion of the physician up to 35 weeks. The abortion procedure is either DE or induction, depending on the duration of the pregnancy. You should plan roughly two hours for day one, five hours for day two, and five hours for day three. During this procedure, It is advised to have reliable assisted transportation in place and to remain locally.

In some cases, depending on medical history, we may be able to perform the procedure within 2 days, but this is not common. Abortions after 20 weeks are often incorrectly referred to as “late-term abortion” which is a corruption of “late trimester abortion” or “later abortion”. “Late-term abortion” is commonly used in the news media but it does not refer to a specific procedure. 

Financial assistance is available for those who qualify.

Please contact our office right away and we will be able to answer any specific questions or concerns.

Facts About Induction Procedure (25 Weeks And Up):

This is usually a 3-day procedure depending on your medical history. First, an ultrasound will be done. This is done by passing a microphone-like instrument over your abdomen (belly) which measures the size of your pregnancy. The final decision as to whether the induction can be done will depend on your medical history, physical examination, laboratory tests, and the assessment of your doctor. On the first day, the cervix is slowly opened with plastic or metal rods, each one slightly larger than the last. When the cervix is as open as possible, small sponges (laminaria) that take up water from your body will be placed; they swell and continue to open the cervix overnight. The next morning the laminaria are removed and new laminaria are placed. This is repeated as needed until the cervix is sufficiently open. The induction abortion ends with the start of labor and delivery of a stillborn.

Birth control: You can become pregnant again right after your pregnancy ends. To avoid any unwanted or unplanned pregnancy start using birth control immediately.

*We strongly suggest that you plan an extra day with your visit with us. Sometimes an extra day for dilation is needed for later abortions in Bellevue NE.
