The decision to seek an abortion or pregnancy termination is incredibly personal, stressful, and emotional. It’s important to make sure you understand your pregnancy termination options, and that your gynecologist or doctor answers all of your questions patiently, knowledgeably, and compassionately. An abortion can be performed surgically or non-surgically for up to 26 weeks after the date of your last period.
A first-trimester abortion can be performed surgically or non-surgically. A surgical abortion is performed about five weeks after the date of your last period by utilizing the suction dilatation and curettage method. A non-surgical abortion utilizes a combination of medications to induce pregnancy termination when a woman is less than six weeks pregnant. A second-trimester abortion can only be performed surgically over 1-3 visits, and is a more complex method of pregnancy termination.
