top questions when to get an abortion.

How far along can you be in pregnancy and get an abortion? 

This is a very common question. And it’s a hard one to answer because there isn’t one set rule. It’s based on a lot of factors, including where you live, your health, and which clinic you go to. 

But the first thing you need to figure out is how many weeks pregnant you are (also known as gestational age).  

The most common way to figure this out is by adding up the number of weeks since the first day of your last period. This will give you a good estimate of the number of weeks you are into the pregnancy. Early on, an ultrasound can help confirm how far along you are. 

Depending on how many weeks pregnant you are, different types of abortion procedures may be available to you. That’s why confirming the gestational age with an ultrasound is so important to understanding the options you have. You can learn more about abortion procedures in the post, “The Types of Abortion.”
