What Do You Know About Abortion Procedures?
Different abortion methods are used to end a pregnancy based on how far along you are. Make sure you know the facts and are fully informed. Pregnancy Center West will provide you with an ultrasound, and resources on various abortion procedures and risks so that you can make an informed decision.
Abortion Pill (Medical Abortion)
A Medical or non-surgical abortion uses the "Abortion Pill" or other types of chemicals to terminate an early pregnancy. This method of abortion is used up to 70 days after a woman’s last menstrual period. If you are further along in your pregnancy, a medical abortion may be ineffective. Getting a medical abortion may involve up to 2 office visits and may require a surgical procedure if the medical abortion is incomplete.
If you’re not a candidate for a medical abortion or if the medical abortion fails, a surgical abortion would be necessary. A surgical abortion must be obtained at a medical facility and ends a pregnancy by emptying the uterus using surgical instruments. There are different types of surgical abortion procedures and different methods involved (depending on gestational age).
