The specific cost of an abortion varies by provider and depends on the type of procedure you have done. How far along your pregnancy is (by gestational age) determines which abortion procedure for which you would be eligible.
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recommends the use of an ultrasound as the most accurate way to determine how far along the pregnancy is. While Focus Women’s Center near McHenry & Johnsburg, IL does not provide or refer for abortions, we do offer free ultrasounds to qualifying patients as part of our Pregnancy Verification and Consultation appointment.
During this appointment, our nurse will be able to provide you with an estimated cost of an abortion based on how far along you are as determined by the ultrasound. These costs are calculated based on the average cost of each procedure at abortion clinics in the surrounding Illinois and Wisconsin areas and are only estimates.
