There are two main types of abortion, medical and surgical. A medical abortion uses two powerful drugs and can only be performed up to the 10th week of pregnancy. Common risks include incomplete abortion, an ongoing unwanted pregnancy if the procedure doesn’t work, heavy and prolonged bleeding, and possible infection.

Surgical abortion is an in-clinic procedure. The gestational age (how many weeks you’ve been pregnant) determines which surgical method is used. The farther along you are, the more invasive the procedure. Possible risks are perforation of the uterus, damage to the cervix, scar tissue, infection, and hemorrhaging (heavy bleeding).
