We are sensitive to our teenage patients’ emotional needs and we want our patients to feel comfortable through every stage of their experience. First, we determine how long you have been pregnant, then you will meet with a trained female counselor who will discuss your abortion with you. Everyone in our office wants to make sure you are comfortable with your decision to have an abortion.
Our nurse or nurse practitioner answer all your questions, tell you about your anesthesia, stress the importance of gentle postoperative care, and offer birth control options.
All our nursing staff contribute to the gentle, supportive acceptance you — and all teens — will feel in our Bronx office.
Female counselors, trained in women’s health and crisis intervention will answer all questions and discuss any personal issues determining a patient’s decision. Teens are welcome to participate in a group counseling session or they can request a private counseling session.
Parenting at any age can be challenging, but it can be particularly difficult for adolescent parents. In 2014, just over 249,000 babies were born to teen girls between the ages of 15 and 19. Childbearing during adolescence negatively affects the parents, their children, and society. Compared with their peers who delay childbearing, teen girls who have babies are:

A teen who deciding whether or not to have an abortion is usually influenced by her financial situation, her family, her peers, and her commitment to personal or professional goals.
The Guttmacher institute tells us that a teenager most often gives these reasons for having an abortion:
Pregnancy interrupts your life, your educational plans, and your future earning potential. Teen motherhood often means that both you and your child will grow up poor.
Teen mothers are significantly less likely to complete high school than their peers; less than 2% of teen mothers who give birth before age 18 go on to earn a college degree by the time they turn 30.
In comparison, teens who choose abortion are more successful in school and are more likely to graduate and pursue higher education.
Research indicates that relief is the most common emotional response following abortion, and that psychological distress appears to be greatest before, rather than after, an abortion. There are undoubtedly some women who, in hindsight, wish that they had made different choices, and the majority would prefer never to have become pregnant when the circumstances were not right for them. When a wanted pregnancy is ended (for medical reasons, for example) women may experience a sense of loss and grief. As with any major change or decision involving loss, a crisis later in life sometimes leads to a temporary resurfacing of sad feelings surrounding the abortion.Women at risk for poor postabortion adjustment are those who do not get the support they need, or whose abortion decisions are actively opposed by people who are important to them.

Based on my experience at Gyn Mngt. Services is that it is a very clean and very friendly and professional environment. The staff were very nice the nurses were very caring and compassionate. I was treated with dignity and respect throughout the whole process. The staff handled me with a caring touch and everything was done discreetly. First arriving I was nervous but they made sure I was comfortable. One woman even went out her way to dispatch a taxi to get me home safely, the caring didn't just stop after the procedure. I was given a call to schedule in my follow up exam. I was pleased to learn that I could return right back to GYNS management services for said follow up which was included in the initial fee for services.
This facility is nice and clean, the workers are awesome and caring. They explained the process to me in words that I could understand, which made me feel comfortable and at ease.
