If an abortion clinic says it is using an aspiration method, but tells you not to eat or drink anything after midnight, it may be a surgical abortion. Surgical abortions can be invasive and are unnecessary for treating early pregnancy.

SofTouch® is noninvasive and natural. If you plan to become pregnant in the future- at the time that is right for you- SofTouch® will not impact your chances of conceiving. SofTouch® is not surgery. There’s no scraping, no operating room, and you can eat and drink normally the night before.

There’s a reason this method is called SofTouch®. It’s a gentle, noninvasive procedure performed with a soft touch by our highly trained physicians. SofTouch® was developed by Harvard-trained physician, Doctor Joan Fleischman, and is today’s most natural and least invasive option for early abortion. SofTouch® can also be used to treat an early miscarriage, or to treat an incomplete surgical abortion.

How is it done? SofTouch® is completed with a small device called an aspirator which fits in the palm of a doctor’s hand. One of our physicians gently inserts a soft, flexible tube through the natural opening of your cervix and applies light pressure, releasing the pregnancy. The procedure lasts about 3-5 minutes with minimal discomfort, and most women feel capable of resuming their normal activities within 15 minutes.

SofTouch® vs. Abortion Pill. Most women who come to Early Options® choose the SofTouch method because it has many advantages over the Abortion Pill. SofTouch® is nearly 100% effective, compared to the Abortion Pill which is 96-98% effective. SoftTouch is completed in one visit and our patients leave the office knowing that the pregnancy is over. Compared to the Abortion Pill, there is less cramping and bleeding and pregnancy symptoms subside more quickly.
