Why it's done?

The reasons for having a medical abortion are highly varied. You can choose medical abortion to complete an early miscarriage or end an unwanted pregnancy. You can also choose to have a medical abortion if you have a medical condition that makes continuing a pregnancy life-threatening and if fetus is not growing well.

How It's Done?

Doctors can use medications, surgery or a combination of both to end an unwanted pregnancy. The method depends on how far along in the pregnancy you are, your medical history and your preference.

Abortions during early pregnancy, before 7 weeks, can be done safely with medications. Abortions between 7 and 12 weeks usually are done surgically, although medications may be used to help soften and open the cervix.

After 12 weeks, abortions can be done using labor inducing medications that cause uterine contractions or by using these medicines in combination with surgery.
