Abortion Care Boston
Your Body, Your Choice
HealthQ believes in fostering open communication about abortion, a subject that many have difficulty discussing openly. We believe you should be completely informed and educated about all of your options and choices. To that end, as a Boston abortion clinic, we provide all the answers and information you need to make an educated decision. If you’re considering abortion in Massachusetts, you can find our safe location serving all of Boston.
Medication Abortion, also known as the Abortion Pill, is available during the first 11 weeks of your pregnancy. This is a safe and effective means of terminating a pregnancy from the comfort and privacy of your own home, surrounded by supportive friends and family.
In-Clinic Abortion is available during the first 14 weeks of your pregnancy in Massachusetts. This is a convenient procedure performed under the supervision of our medical personnel. The procedure concludes by the time you leave the medical office.

IS ABORTION SAFE?
According to the National Institute for Health, abortion is completely safe — it’s even safer than childbirth in the United States.
HealthQ is a registered abortion provider in Massachusetts, licensed by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. We adhere to the strictest evidence-based clinical standards according to the National Abortion Federation. We also review all the potential risks and complications during your visit. You can rest assured that your in-clinic or medication abortion will be completely safe at our Boston abortion clinic.
IS ABORTION PAINFUL?
Abortion may cause pain and discomfort, but we take all the necessary precautions to reduce discomfort. We provide nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, to help you relax during the session. You may also take 800mg of Ibuprofen before your session to reduce cramping sensations during or after the procedure. However, you should avoid aspirin.
If you opt for nitrous oxide sedation, you’ll have to hold the mouthpiece to your mouth and breathe the gas under our staff member’s supervision. The laughing gas will make you feel a little light-headed and alleviate your anxieties. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off within 3 minutes of breathing regular air, so you can drive yourself back home.
THE ABORTION PILL VS. THE MORNING-AFTER PILL
The Abortion Pill can terminate a pregnancy during the first 11 weeks. The Morning-After Pill, also known as Plan B, is an emergency contraception pill that prevents pregnancy up to five days after unprotected sex. You should ideally take Plan B as soon after sexual intercourse as possible to minimize the risk of pregnancy.
In-Clinic Abortion at HealthQ
During the in-clinic abortion at our center serving all of Boston, the physician will insert a thin tube (cannula) inside the uterus and use gentle suction force to terminate the pregnancy. You can opt for nitrous oxide sedation to alleviate your mental anxieties and discomfort. The entire process concludes within 10 minutes, but you may spend up to 3 hours at the medical office. The nitrous oxide wears off within 3 minutes, so you can drive yourself back home.
Your Privacy Matters
At HealthQ we always keep your decisions and information regarding your healthcare solely with your provider. Our medical team will do our best to ensure that you and you alone are able to consent for all services you receive. You can count on our privacy, confidentiality, and security at our Boston abortion clinic.
