ABORTION RISKS

Before you have any elective medical procedure, it’s important to know the possible risks it could pose to your physical health and future. As with any medical procedure, there are potential risks to any abortion procedure.

What Are The Possible Abortion Risks?

Abortion risks and side effects vary by the type of procedure and how far along you are. The following are typical for almost any woman who has had an abortion:

  • Bleeding
  • Cramping
  • Dizziness
  • Drowsiness
  • Nausea/Vomiting

More serious abortion risks and complications that some women experience include

  • Damage to the uterus or cervix
  • Very heavy bleeding
  • An incomplete abortion which requires an additional surgical procedure
  • Infection of the uterus or fallopian tubes
  • Scarring of the inside of the uterus
  • Sepsis
  • Inability to have children in the future
