Providers generally provide one or both of the following abortion methods:
- Medication Abortion (a.k.a. the abortion pill): This method of abortion uses medication to end a pregnancy. It is generally available during the first 10-11 weeks of pregnancy (i.e., 10-11 weeks after the first day of your last period).
- Procedural Abortion: This method of abortion is available in Wyoming up to 23 weeks and 6 days. Depending on where you are in your pregnancy, it may be by vacuum aspiration or dilation and evacuation.
Abortion costs vary by provider and length of pregnancy. In general, later term abortions are more expensive than earlier term abortions, and procedural abortions are more expensive than medication abortions. Abortions involving IV sedation (some procedures) or for individuals who are Rh negative may incur additional charges. Chelsea’s Fund is here to provide financial assistance to those who require it.
If you are a minor, a parent or guardian may need to be notified of your intent to receive an abortion and provide consent. Parental consent is currently required in Wyoming, Colorado, Montana, and Utah. To find out more about the specific requirements of the state where you will have the abortion and that state’s judicial bypass options, contact the clinic where you plan to get your abortion.
