Aspiration Abortion: Up to 12 weeks from the first day of your last period.

What will happen?

Medication Abortion: Generally, the abortion pill is taken in person at the clinic or at a doctor’s office. Most women feel fine after taking mifepristone, though some experience nausea. At home, 6 to 72 hours later, a second pill, misoprostol, is taken bucally (placed in your cheek to dissolve) or vaginally, as instructed by your healthcare provider. The abortion starts one to four hours after taking the misoprostol. Heavy bleeding and cramps last for a couple of hours. You will have a follow-up appointment about a week later to be sure the abortion is complete. Aspiration Abortion: The abortion takes place in the clinic or office. The actual abortion procedure takes five to 10 minutes. A physician uses medical instruments in your vagina and uterus to remove the pregnancy. A return visit is required only if you experience problems, or if you would like to see a healthcare provider.

How painful is it?

Medication Abortion and Aspiration Abortion: Expect mild to very strong cramps on and off during the abortion, which may be managed (or helped) with pain medication.

How much will I bleed?

Medication Abortion: Heavy bleeding with clots is common when you are passing the pregnancy. After that, lighter bleeding may continue off and on for one to two weeks or more.

Aspiration Abortion: Light bleeding generally lasts for one to seven days. Bleeding may continue off and on for a few weeks.

Can the abortion fail?

Medication Abortion: The pills work 98 to 99 percent of the time. If the pills fail, you will need to have an aspiration abortion.

Aspiration Abortion: It works 99 percent of the time. If it fails, you will need to have a repeat aspiration abortion.

Can I have children afterwards?

Yes. Neither type of abortion reduces your chances of getting or staying pregnant in the future.

Is it safe?

Medication Abortion: Both pills have been used safely since the late 1980s in Europe and since 2000 in the U.S. Major Problems are rare. Medication abortion carries at least 10 times less risk of health complications than continuing a pregnancy.

Aspiration Abortion: Aspiration abortion is a safe and common procedure that has been done for more than 40 years. Abortion in the first eight weeks is the safest, and problems with any first trimester abortions are rare. Surgical abortion carries at least 10 times less risk of health complications than continuing a pregnancy.
