What Will Abortion Be Like?
An elective abortion occurs when a woman chooses to terminate a viable pregnancy. Usually, gestational age, health history, and other medical histories will determine which type of abortion procedure is selected.
Understanding what to expect, including side effects and all possible risks and complications, is essential.
Risks will vary dependent on the abortion procedure used. Discuss these risks of the abortion pill with your physician or local pregnancy center:
- Incomplete abortion, which may need to be followed by surgical abortion
- An ongoing pregnancy if the procedure doesn’t work
- Heavy and prolonged bleeding
- Digestive system discomfort
The risks of a surgical abortion include the following:
- Perforation of the uterus
- Damage to the cervix
- Scar tissue on the uterine wall
Understanding your health through a physical exam, speaking with your physician about medications and if they should be stopped or altered before a procedure, and confirming pregnancy through ultrasound and pregnancy testing is vital to protect your health before an abortion procedure.
