UChicago Medicine abortion care statement

We offer a personalized and comprehensive approach to care, including reproductive health counseling services.

Family planning services at The Ryan Center

The Society of Family Planning, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, and the American Medical Association all affirm that abortion and contraception are essential healthcare choices that should be delivered in a timely fashion.

UChicago Medicine provides a safe and supportive environment in which to receive family planning care in a state (Illinois) that allows the provision of this care without barriers. In addition to access to abortion care, we offer contraception care with the full spectrum of contraceptive options and remote follow-up care for medical abortion and self-administration of subcutaneous Depo-Provera. Our team at UChicago Medicine is deeply committed to supporting the medical and psychosocial needs of patients seeking an abortion, miscarriage, and contraceptive care.

If you live within or outside of the state of Illinois and are experiencing challenges accessing reproductive care, please call 773-702-6118.

Reproductive Health Counseling

Many of our patients deal with circumstances or conditions that may impact their reproductive health and well-being. At UChicago Medicine, we offer behavioral health services for patients seeking abortion, miscarriage, contraception or gynecologic care. Our team includes a licensed clinical psychologist who helps meet our patients' needs more comprehensively, offering behavioral counseling and support.
