Methods of Abortion


Medication abortion, also called the abortion pill, can be taken up to 70 days (10 weeks pregnant).1 The abortion pill is taken in two doses, one typically at a doctor’s office and the other at home. The FDA specifically warns people not to buy the abortion pill or the generic version on the Internet because it bypasses safeguards.2,3


There are several types of surgical abortions. Suction aspiration, also called suction curettage, or vacuum aspiration abortion, is performed during the first 6 to 14 weeks gestational age. Dilation and Evacuation (D&E) is another type of procedure typically done in later weeks. Both types have risks and side-effects that greatly vary depending on your gestation and health.4
