Laminaria abortion (16 up to 24.6 weeks)

We specialize in second trimester Laminaria abortion.

At Pilgrim Medical Center a gynecologist, with special training, removes a pregnancy using medication and small dilating sticks, called Laminaria, special instruments, and vacuum curettage.

Laminaria are made from a special seaweed material that widen as they absorb moisture from your body. The Laminaria will be inserted into your cervix prior to surgery and prepare your body for the Laminaria abortion.

  • Laminaria procedures for patients who are 18 weeks to 24.6 weeks gestation can only be done on Tuesday and Wednesday.
  • Call our office to verify fees. All prices are subject to change.
  • Appointments may be made and all necessary information obtained by calling Monday through Saturday between the hours of 8:30 AM and 6:00 PM.

Pregnancy Calculator

DISCLAIMER: The Pregnancy Calculator below is an estimation of weeks from reported last normal menstrual period and does not constitute medical advice. A missed period does not necessarily mean that you are pregnant, and having a period does not mean you are not pregnant. Only an exam, pregnancy test, or ultrasound by a physician can confirm pregnancy and approximate length of pregnancy. The calculator should be used as a guide only and should not be relied upon for weeks of pregnancy, conception date, or due date.

To estimate the length of your pregnancy, enter the first day of your last period and then press ‘calculate’.
