After Abortion / Will anyone know that I had an abortion?

As dictated by the federal Health Information Privacy Practices, neither your provider nor this service will disclose to anyone your medical record without your permission unless it is for immediate, necessary medical treatment. The only people who will know you have had an abortion are those you choose to tell. We do strongly recommend that you inform your regular doctor of the procedure to ensure that you are getting the best possible medical care. Many women find it beneficial to have a support person, their partner, parent or a friend, to confide in, but that is entirely your choice. If you are having a surgical procedure and are opting for sedation, you will be required to bring someone to drive you home from your appointment.
