Non- Surgical Procedures Abortion

Non-Surgical abortion procedures are an alternative to surgical abortions, and are for women during the first eight weeks of pregnancy. Eastside Gynecology offers:

The Abortion Pill

The early option pill to end pregnancy also known by its trade name Mifiprex (Mifepristone) and also commonly referred to as RU-486, is prescribed to women seeking a non surgical abortion up to 49 days after the beginning of the latest menstruation. The Abortion Pill has a 97% success rate, most insurances cover the abortion pill, if you have questions regarding the abortion pill coverage, price or wish to pay out of pocket please contact EastSide at: 212.308.4988.

The Morning-After Pill (Emergency Contraception)

Plan B One-Step® is commonly reffered to as the Morning-After Pill and is intended to be used as emergency contraception (EC).  For use within 72 hours (3 days) after sex, but the sooner you take it, the better it works. Plan B One-step is a back up plan that helps prevent pregnancy from happening after unprotected sex or birth control failure and is not for routine use. Because EC is preventative it is not considered an abortion.


We at EastSide Gynecology offer the Manual Vacuum Aspiration (MVA) as an early abortion option. For women between 5-7 weeks of pregnancy. It is one of the least invasive procedures that we offer.  The procedure takes about 5 minutes with no electronic machinery used and no scraping involved.

Surgical Procedures

We provide a friendly, safe, professional and comfortable environment for women who have decided that abortion is their plan. We offer same-day appointments Tuesday through Saturday. Walk-ins are welcome, and we speak English, Spanish, and Russian.
