How is Abortion Performed?

How an abortion is performed will depend on how far along the pregnancy is. In the 1st 6 weeks you can opt for a chemical abortion where you take a medication that terminates the pregnancy along with a medication to cause the uterus to expell the fetus at home. Past 6 weeks there are surgical procedures and also injectable medications that can be used to end the pregnany. Your care giver will discuss the best options for you depending on your personal circumstances.
