Abortion pills for sale in Cambodia, Medication abortion is done in Cambodia using a combination of medications, together called Mifegymiso. Mifegymiso includes two medications that are taken over two days. If your pregnancy is between 6 and 9 weeks (63 days), counting from the first day of your last normal menstrual period, you may choose either a medication abortion or an aspiration abortion.

Aspiration Abortion: When abortion was illegal, it was a very unsafe procedure. This is because people often did the procedure under unsanitary conditions or with no medical training. However, since legalization, abortion has become one of the safest surgical procedures available. To put this in perspective, abortion is at least 10 times safer than pregnancy and childbirth. Complication rates are a little higher in the second trimester, but the procedure remains very safe.
