Methods of Abortion
We have more information for you regarding abortion, the methods and procedures, but here’s some basics:
Medical Abortion (aka RU486, Mifepristone or Abortion Pill) – Within 4 to 7 weeks after LMP
The procedure usually requires three office visits. On the first visit, the woman is given pills to disengage the contents from the uterus. She is given a second pill to take at home 48 hours later to work towards expelling the contents of the uterus. This process could take a few days. The last visit is a follow up ultrasound to determine if the procedure has been completed and a surgical abortion is not needed. There is reported cramping on a varying scale, nausea, vomiting and bleeding along with usual medical and surgical risks.
Suction Curettage: between 6 to 14 weeks after LMP
This is the most common surgical abortion procedure. After the cervix is widened, a plastic tube is inserted into the uterus to remove the contents via suction. Following, a loop-shaped knife called a curette may be used to remove any remaining contents. Due to the manual opening of the cervix, a general anesthetic is typically given along with medicine to prevent infection. There is reported pain, cramping, nausea, vomiting and bleeding to follow along with the usual surgical risks.
