There a few types of procedures provided at Kensington Clinic. In most cases, the type of procedure you have will be determined by the stage of your pregnancy.
- Medication Abortion up to 9 weeks 0 days
- Aspiration Abortion from 6 – 15 weeks of pregnancy
- Dilation and Evacuation from 15-20 weeks 0 days
To determine the type of procedure you will require, it is important to know the duration of your pregnancy. This is measured by the number of weeks from the first day of your last normal menstrual period. If you are travelling a long distance from Calgary, or your pregnancy is 12 weeks or more, we recommend you obtain an ultrasound before coming for your appointment to ensure we will be able to provide the care you need.
