Since the year 2000, there has been an alternative to surgical abortion in the United States. A “medication abortion” utilizes RU-486, often referred to as the “abortion pill.” If you are searching for information about the abortion pill in Villa Park, we hope Avenue Women’s Center will be your first step.
Avenue Women’s Center has been serving women facing unintended pregnancies in Chicagoland for over 35 years. We have five locations in DuPage County: Elmhurst, Glen Ellyn / Lombard, Naperville, West Chicago, and Wood Dale, Illinois. For those wondering about the abortion pill in Villa Park, either our Wood Dale or our Lombard / Glen Ellyn office would likely be a convenient location for you. Please call, chat, email, or text for an appointment and allow us to assist you.
Before obtaining the abortion pill, the following steps are recommended to ensure your safety:
- Confirm that you are in fact pregnant by receiving a free medical grade pregnancy test.
- Ensure that your pregnancy is located in your uterus and is not ectopic, via ultrasound.
- Determine if your pregnancy is likely to continue or likely to miscarry, via ultrasound. (Statistically 1 in 5-6 pregnancies end naturally via miscarriage, without the use of the abortion pill.)
- Discuss your options privately with a pregnancy advisor regarding the decision between a Surgical Abortion or the Abortion Pill.
Avenue Women’s Center can help you with these steps. Many of our services are free.
