When can a woman have a medical Abortion?

When can a woman have a medical Abortion?, Medical abortions are only effective within the first 56 days of a woman’s pregnancy. This implies 56 days since the first day of her last menstrual period.

The woman should be willing to have a surgical abortion if the medical abortion does not work.

The women should be willing to return to the clinic 14 to 21 days later for a follow-up visit.

What causes Continuing Pregnancy

Occasionally the pregnancy may continue, and a curette is necessary. This is less common with early pregnancies, and the rate is one in a hundred. An assessment with an ultrasound is made two weeks after the initial consultation to ensure that a successful abortion has occurred.

Ectopic Pregnancy

About 1 in 200 pregnancies grow in the tube and not in the uterus. Medical abortion is not possible with this kind of pregnancy. Ectopic pregnancies are very serious and may cause death. If we think you are at risk, we will give you a special information sheet.

Dangers of illegal abortion

The tablets might not work. A % of the population does not have receptors for the medication to absorb.

Incomplete abortions – it can happen that not all the products come out, and that can lead to excessive bleeding and infection.

  • Patients can bleed themselves to death.

An abortion is always a traumatic experience. Make sure your abortion is safe and allows you the best chance to be healthy after the procedure and have normal pregnancies in the future.

We offer a comprehensive TOP service. But We aim to create an emotionally caring, private, and confidential environment as this can be an emotionally traumatic experience. Counseling forms an integral part of our service – the counseling is informative, non-directive, and according to the needs of the client.

Termination of pregnancy (TOP) is a term to describe abortion.  Women can go to any doctor, hospital, or clinic to ask for an abortion. Trained medical personnel at approved clinics and hospitals like Reproductive Choices can perform TOP.
