Safe Options for Abortion Procedures


Florida Women’s Center has a longstanding goal and history of providing patients with a remarkably safe and comfortable abortion procedure, with a long recognized and established reputation of providing excellent outcomes and experiences for women obtaining abortion care in Jacksonville. Although an abortion procedure takes only about 2-3 minutes, mild and safe patient oriented pain management techniques provides not only exceptional comfort for women undergoing this brief abortion procedure, but also enhanced safety.  Truly experienced abortion providers like ours at Florida Women’s Center use safe comfort measures which has become a modern and indispensable benefit to women who are seeking comfortable and modern abortion related care. Experienced doctors providing abortions as part of their medical care are aware that predictable and safe preoperative anxiolytic medications and pain management is a modern responsible choice for patients who were facing the option of undergoing a brief surgical abortion procedure. With the advent of safe and effective safe anxiolytic anesthesia for management of potential discomfort with proper medical techniques, the abortion procedure is no longer an uncomfortable procedure for most patients.

It is common sense that Doctors always want their patients to be as comfortable as possible, using techniques unique to each patient to optimize the patient experience of all medical care.  The brief abortion procedure, which truly lasts just a few minutes, can be achieved in comfort using techniques that achieve both safe and comfortable transitions through the abortion process. 

Our experienced environment and full time approach towards women’s care allows us the ability to truly understand the challenges women face when seeking abortion services and care.    

One of the Most Common Questions Patients Have Is “Will the Abortion Procedure be Painful?”

In modern abortion facilities, light analgesia is used to help patients transition through the abortion process.   This technique can vary based on many factors and although every patient is different and will perceive discomfort differently, we do our very best to keep patients are as comfortable as possible while still benefiting from the option to have an abortion procedure in a clinic setting, as obtaining an abortion procedure in a hospital is not an option available in our community.  In addition to providing both anxiety relief and pain management to our patients with decades of satisfied comfortable patients, our extensive experience and safety record has shown that our techniques are extremely safe and reliable, and also increase the safety of the procedure itself which is part of the benefit of our care and approach towards patient management.  

Our goal is to provide optimal comfort to all patients while maintaining unparalleled safety and surgical predictability, and our 20 years of practice have helped thousands of women comfortably and safely transition through the abortion process.  As with all medical care, it is of the highest importance for patients with high anxiety or underlying conditions to fully disclose this to all their physicians to help the physician counsel the patient and choose the best comfort measures available for each individual, as patients may have different needs or due to many factors may have varied tolerances to medications. In current times, most modern facilities in the country offering abortion services provide safe anxiolysis and procedural pain management as part of their care, making it easy for patients to as they have the reliable option of comfort and safety.

A woman’s safety will always be our highest priority when providing care to our patients. It is common sense that patient anxiety and underlying stress during this emotional time can impact on the effectiveness of anesthesia, and we do our best to provide comfort which enhances our ability to provide a safe abortion procedure tailored to patient needs.  We have a known supportive and comfortable environment and highly qualified physician staff with decades of keeping patients comfortable and safe if they undergo an abortion procedure. As with all medications and anesthesia techniques, we also know that emotion anxiety can affect the perception associated with anesthetic techniques.  These are the factors that we do our best to resolve.  With all the revolving controversial social or political discussions and completely inappropriate attempts of anti-choice extremists to intentionally scare patients with inaccurate information and emotional invasions, we recognize that this can actually cause patients to have greater anxiety than normal, which we understand and take into consideration.  Safety will always be our number one priority when providing our care. If you are seeking an abortion procedure, make sure you disclose all your medical history and any concerns to our doctor to assist the doctor in choosing proper medications that will best fit your situation.

Fortunately, patients now have options for comfort when obtaining a minor procedures such as an election abortion as abortion providers such as ours became fully dedicated to providing elective abortions and reproductive care to women who choose our assistance.  At Florida Women’s Center, our doctors understand that every patient is different and needs personal care, and we also respect every patient’s choice and wishes.  At Florida Women’s Center, we have made it possible for even some of the most anxious and difficult surgical candidates to have office based abortions and transition through this process safely.

With few exceptions, a modern abortion procedure is now a comfortable, virtually painless experience compared to abortions in the past.   99% of patients either feel no discomfort at all during the procedure or feel very mild pressure or cramps, which last only for a few seconds while medicines are provided.   

At Florida Women’s Center, we provide patients with the opportunity to transition through their visit and surgical procedure comfortably and safely. Accordingly and as with all medical care, all patients must not eat or drink 4–6 hours before their appointment. Every patient should also have a designated driver to assure a safe trip home.
