Women in need of pregnancy termination might be eligible for a chemical abortion if they are still within the first trimester of their pregnancies. Specifically, a chemical abortion is an option for women who have not yet surpassed six weeks of pregnancy. In contrast to a surgical abortion, which is performed entirely within an abortion clinic, a chemical abortion can be carried out within the patient’s home. The medication given to the patient leads to the cessation of the pregnancy. A chemical abortion also causes contractions so that the tissues of the uterus can leave the body. Women who suspect they may be pregnant should consult a gynecologist about their chemical abortion options as soon as possible, as more advanced pregnancies may require surgical abortions.
