Types of Abortions
There are two main types of abortion: surgical and medical. How far along you are in your pregnancy determines the abortion method used.
A medical abortion uses drugs to terminate a pregnancy. A type of medical abortion includes the abortion pill. The FDA has approved the abortion pill method through 70 days gestation (70 days or less since the first day of a woman’s last menstrual period).
It is vital to know how many days you have been pregnant to determine if you qualify for the abortion pill. Get a more exact date with an ultrasound.
Be prepared and learn more details about medical abortion.
Surgical abortions are done by dilating (opening) the cervix and passing instruments into the uterus to suction, scrape, and pull out the pregnancy and pregnancy tissue. The exact surgical procedure is determined by the date the pregnancy began and the level of growth.
Knowing how far along your pregnancy is helps determine your surgical procedure. Ultrasound determines your date of conception.
Be prepared and learn more details about surgical abortion.
