WHAT ARE THE ABORTION PROCEDURES?


SUCTION ASPIRATION ABORTION


This is a surgical abortion that is commonly performed from 4-12 weeks gestation. As the name implies, this procedure literally removes the embryo by suction.


SUCTION CURETTAGE


This surgical abortion procedure requires the doctor to physically stretch open the cervix prior to using the suction machine to remove the embryo.


DILATION AND EVACUATION (ALSO KNOWN AS DILATION AND EXTRACTION)


This abortion procedure literally refers to the dilation of the cervix and the surgical evacuation of the contents of the uterus (the baby).


THE ABORTION PILL (RU486)


This drug is used for very early pregnancies to chemically cause an abortion. Please know that this method is not for everyone and, just like surgical abortions, there are significant health risk in using the abortion pill.


This is only a brief summary abortion procedures most commonly used today. More complete details will be given to you when you make your appointment with one of our qualified staff members.



WHAT ARE THE RISKS INVOLVED WITH HAVING AN ABORTION?


As with any medical procedure, there are possible risks to any abortion procedure. Those risk include heavy bleeding, infection, damage to cervix, damage to the uterus or uterine lining, damage to other internal organs, sepsis (total body infection caused by RU486), loss of future fertility and death. When you make your appointment, you will be given complete information on the health risks associated with abortion.
