When you call for an appointment our nurse will ask you for the first day of your last normal menstrual period. This date lets her estimate the number of weeks you have been pregnant. If you are 13 to 24 weeks pregnant, you are in the Second Trimester of your pregnancy.
A second trimester abortion is performed in two consecutive days. On the first day, cervical dilators will be inserted into the cervix to gently and comfortably dilate the cervix through the night.
We ask that you remain with a 50 mile radius from our office after the laminaria have been inserted. Please remember that you must have an escort accompany you home on both days. You will return to our Bronx Office the next morning at 7:30am.
On the second day of your Second Trimester Abortion, you will be attended by our experienced counselors, anesthesiologists, nurses and doctors will monitor your vital signs and provide you with anesthesia.
For the second day procedure, you will be asleep for approximately 5-15 minutes. Once asleep, the pregnancy tissue will be removed. The surgeon will insert a speculum in the vagina to improve access to the cervix. The cervical dilators will be removed and the pregnancy tissue will be removed from the uterus via the dilated cervix.
The surgeon will apply gentle suction to the lining of the uterus to ensure that all pregnancy tissue was removed. Finally, the surgeon will massage your uterus to control bleeding and help the uterus contract to its normal size.
All second trimester abortion patients receive prescriptions of medications to take at home. You will take antibiotics to prevent infection. You will also take medication to help your uterus return to its pre-pregnant size.
You may return to the office for your free postoperative appointment within 2-3 weeks. A healthcare provider will discuss birth control with you at that time.
I would totally recommend this facility to a friend or any woman in need of these services. I felt very comfortable and the staff is very caring. I was great when I left.
Based on my experience at Gyn Mngt. Services is that it is a very clean and very friendly and professional environment. The staff were very nice the nurses were very caring and compassionate. I was treated with dignity and respect throughout the whole process. The staff handled me with a caring touch and everything was done discreetly. First arriving I was nervous but they made sure I was comfortable. One woman even went out her way to dispatch a taxi to get me home safely, the caring didn't just stop after the procedure. I was given a call to schedule in my follow up exam. I was pleased to learn that I could return right back to GYNS management services for said follow up which was included in the initial fee for services.
This facility is nice and clean, the workers are awesome and caring. They explained the process to me in words that I could understand, which made me feel comfortable and at ease.
I visited this clinic a week ago, the staff were very nice especially the nurses. The clinic is well organized. I would recommend this clinic to a friend.
I came to visit the clinic for services and it was just as pleasant as my first experience. The staff was very caring and they took very good care of me. It is a clean and safe environment. I would absolutely refer a friend in need of their services.
