A medical abortion is one that is brought about by taking medications that will end a pregnancy. There are several types of medication. The medication is very effective and it works same day. After a medical abortion you should be able to resume your normal activities. Most women do not need to miss work to complete a medical abortion.
When Is Medical Abortion Completed?
A medical abortion is best completed between 2 and 16 weeks from the first day of your last menstrual period.
Medical Abortion compared to the Aspiration Procedure
Medical abortion is one of two non-surgical abortion methods. Another non-surgical abortion method is the Manual Vacuum Aspiration- a quick and gentle early abortion method that takes minutes to complete.
The Manual Aspiration Procedure has some advantages over medical abortion. It is completed in one visit to the doctor’s office, it has a higher success rate, there is significantly less bleeding and cramping, and there is immediate recovery.
Medical Abortion and the Abortion Pill
Today, most medical abortion is completed with Abortion Pill. This is the best medication for ending early pregnancy. It is 95-99% effective. It is convenient, because you can schedule a time to induce the miscarriage.
How does a Medical Abortion Work?
It works by blocking the hormone progesterone, which is necessary to sustain pregnancy. Without this hormone, the lining of the uterus breaks down, the cervix (opening of the uterus or womb) softens, and bleeding begins. Within a few hours days after taking the medication medication it will cause the uterus to contract and empty. This ends the pregnancy. If you are pregnant and can not afford surgical abortion which is very expensive then consider medical termination with a pill. You will achieve exactly the same results, safely, quickly and cheaply.
