When is it too late to have an abortion?

In general, an abortion is legal in South Africa through the second trimester, or 24 weeks from the first day of the last menstrual period (LMP). In Pretoria, you can access abortion care through 24 weeks LMP, and Mark Women’s Center offers abortions in Eastern Cape up to 24 weeks and 6 days LMP.

Because both the risks of abortion and the costs increase as a pregnancy progresses, we recommend that you make the decision to end your pregnancy as early as possible. However, an abortion at any time during pregnancy is still a very safe procedure.

How long does the procedure take?

A first-trimester surgical abortion will usually take about 5 minutes. Second-trimester abortions can be longer, taking anywhere from 10 to 20 minutes for the surgical procedure.

Some second-trimester abortions also require additional time to dilate the cervix before the surgery is performed. The dilation process can take anywhere from 30 minutes up to 24 hours (overnight) prior to the surgery.

While the surgery itself is not long, it is important to remember that there are several pre-operative assessments that are required to ensure your comfort and safety prior to the surgery, so your appointment may take several hours to complete. We extend that same courtesy to all of our patients, which at times may affect your wait.

What is the difference between surgical abortion and medical abortion?

A surgical abortion occurs when a doctor (or other qualified health care provider) removes a pregnancy from the uterus.  The doctor numbs the cervix (opening of the uterus), then dilates (opens) the cervix a little bit to put in a small tube and removes the pregnancy with suction.  A surgical abortion may take anywhere from 5 to 20 minutes, depending on where you are in your pregnancy.

Medical abortion involves the use of medications that induce abortion. For most women, the medical abortion process is similar to having a miscarriage.  This option is only available early in pregnancy.  The Atlanta Women’s Center uses the FDA-approved medications mifepristone and misoprostol for medical abortions.

How can it be too early to have an abortion?

In order to have an abortion, your physician must be able to confirm that there is a pregnancy in your uterus. At Tshwane Women’s Center, we use an ultrasound to confirm pregnancy. If you are very early in your pregnancy, it may be too small to be detected or seen on the ultrasound.

In rare cases, the pregnancy may be developing outside of the uterus or in one of the fallopian tubes.
