The decision to end a pregnancy can be a difficult one. Some people find that having an abortion at home may make things easier. A woman who is more than nine weeks pregnant must surgically terminate a pregnancy, which is more common than a medication induced abortion. But prior to week nine, a medication induced termination—where a woman takes medication which will cause her pregnancy to cease—is an option.Generally, a woman takes the medication which actually causes the pregnancy to terminate in her doctor’s office. Then, after she goes home, she inserts a different medication into her vagina which softens her cervix and causes it to contract and empty. This results in heavy bleeding and tissue discharge, which is the abortion. A woman who has a medication termination often experiences painful cramping and may feel nauseous. For this reason, doctors will often prescribe a pain killer, as well. Medication abortions are 96 percent effective, so you must return to the doctor for a follow-up visit to ensure that the pregnancy has been terminated. That’s because any remaining tissue can make a future pregnancy impossible.Post-termination, you may experience a wide range of confusing emotions—so take advantage of the counseling referrals offered by most clinics.
