Abortions Q & A

What abortion-related services does Dr. Naim offer?

Dr. Naim offers abortions and pregnancy terminations in addition to free pregnancy tests at the Hollywood location. Both walk-in visits and scheduled appointments are welcome. Ultrasound and lab work, when needed, are performed on site, and he also offers a complete range of birth control options, making it easy to discuss contraception during your follow-up visit.

What is a medical abortion?

A medical abortion uses medicine to cause the fetus to abort on its own. Medical abortions can usually be performed up until about nine weeks of pregnancy. In most cases, a medical abortion requires two visits. At the first visit, you'll be given a medication to take in the office and a second one to take at home. You can expect to have vaginal bleeding for about two weeks once the medicines take effect. During the second visit about two weeks later, Dr. Naim will confirm the medical abortion was successful and ensure you're recovering well.

What is a surgical abortion?

A surgical abortion uses a vacuum device in the first trimester to remove tissue in the uterus. During the second trimester, a procedure called a D&E (dilation and evacuation) is performed to widen your cervix and remove the tissue in your uterus. You'll need someone to drive you home following a surgical abortion, and you can expect to have vaginal bleeding for about two weeks. During your follow-up visit, Dr. Naim will examine you to make sure your recovery is proceeding well.

Are abortion services confidential?

Yes; in fact, all medical services are completely confidential. Dr. Naim is very aware of the sometimes contentious issues that can surround pregnancy termination, and any care or consultations you receive with him or his staff are always held in strictest confidence.
