It is important for you to have access to medical care after an abortion procedure. Philadelphia Women’s Center provides a 24-hour hotline at (800) 869-2330 for you if you are experiencing problems or have concerns after your procedure. We can also provide you a follow-up exam 2-3 weeks after the procedure. At this appointment you can bring up any questions or concerns that you have had since your procedure, or discuss birth control. Testing for sexually transmitted infections can also be performed before or during the abortion procedure and results are usually available at the follow-up appointment. If you are using insurance, you may be responsible for a co-pay at your follow-up appointment
If you have had a surgical abortion with us and it is not possible for you to return to Philadelphia Women’s Center for a follow-up exam, you may choose to have your follow-up exam with your own physician. If you have had a medical abortion with Philadelphia Women’s Center, it is important that you follow up at Philadelphia Women’s Center to ensure that the procedure was completed and you do not need additional care to complete the abortion.
