What do I need to know about abortion?

Protecting your health and your future are likely two of your main concerns. That’s why you should make sure you know all the facts about the options you have in dealing with an unplanned pregnancy.

There are two main types of abortion procedures, and both have potential complications that you should be aware of.

Types of Abortion

Surgical Abortion

Surgical abortion is an invasive procedure that is required to be done in a medical clinic with medical staff. While the type of procedure used in a surgical abortion will depend on the gestational age of a pregnancy, any procedure is invasive and runs the risk of complications and side effects. It’s important that any abortion clinic you visit provides you with all the details regarding abortion procedures, and any side effects or potential complications that might occur. You should also make sure that the clinic knows how to handle any complications that might arise during an abortion procedure. 

Medical Abortion

Medical abortion is described as “the pill”, and involves a series of pills taken to terminate a pregnancy. While it does not require an invasive procedure like surgical abortion, there are known complications and side effects that can occur, especially if a woman has other pre-existing conditions. What’s more, some of the side effects can impact a woman’s health and fertility in the long term. Medical abortion is also required to be supervised by a licensed healthcare professional.
