If you are considering an abortion for your unexpected pregnancy, there are facts you need to know in order to make a fully-informed decision. A registered nurse at Women’s Resource Center can provide you detailed information about abortion procedures during a free consultation. Get the most up-to-date facts before you make any decision.

Abortion Procedures

There is more than one abortion procedure. A medication abortion uses two powerful drugs to terminate a pregnancy before the ninth or tenth week. A surgical abortion requires instruments and a suction device once the pregnancy moves past the tenth week. Because these are both serious medical procedures, it is important that you understand the process and possible risks of both.

Abortion Risks

As with any medical procedure, there are a number of risks and possible side effects with abortion. Not only do you run the risk of physical side effects, but abortion also has emotional and psychological side effects as well. With any abortion, you may experience:

  • Excessive bleeding
  • Cramping
  • Infection
  • Nausea

The psychological effects could range from a sense of loss or guilt to contemplating suicide. Just being aware of the risks and possible side effects means you are properly informed.
