Can the abortion fail?

Can the abortion fail? There is about a one in 100 chance that the pregnancy will continue, and an aspiration procedure may be necessary. About 4 in 100 will require the misoprostol a second time or will choose to have an aspiration procedure to complete the process.

Will my doctor know that I had an abortion?

No – there is no way anyone can tell whether you miscarried naturally or had an induced procedure. If you are uncomfortable discussing this with your doctor, but we can give you a list of clinics for follow-up, or you can return to us.

Will having an abortion or a d and stop me from getting pregnant in the future?

No – a safe and uncomplicated procedure will not interfere with your ability to conceive or to carry a pregnancy to term.

Some women are worried about the risk of curettage or instrumentation of the uterus to reduce future fertility. We almost never use curettage in first-trimester pregnancies, and the risk of scarring (Asherman’s) from this procedure is virtually zero. The procedure is safer than potential complications from ongoing retained pregnancy tissue with sustained bleeding and infection.

How do I choose between surgical and medical abortion?

A surgical abortion, or a D&C, is performed by a physician using instruments rather than medication. It is a safe and simple procedure that takes less than five minutes. There is no cutting or stitching involved.

Some women are interested in Medical Abortion. But  A medical abortion is another way to terminate a pregnancy, by taking two different medications and inducing a miscarriage at home. In Canada medical abortion is usually induced using the Abortion Pill – Mifepristone – up to 9wks gestation

There are differences between Surgical and Medical abortion options:

Medical Abortion

Surgical Abortion

1) Up to 9 weeks gestation

1) From 3 – 19.6 weeks gestation

2) One visit but a follow-up blood test or ultrasound is strongly recommended

2) The whole procedure can be done in a single visit

3) Miscarriage at home over one to two days

3) Takes place in a clinic or health care centre; visit for 2-3 hours, procedure takes about five minutes

4) 95% success rate; failures need to be treated with a surgical abortion

4) 99% success rate at the time of the procedure

5) Pain medication will be provided to take home

5) Intravenous pain medication available

6) Bleeding, cramping, nausea, and diarrhea are side effects. You will need to have a free day (no work or childcare) in order to have the miscarriage. You will need to have access to emergency services in case of heavy bleeding.

6) There is a small risk of cervical or uterine injury. Both medical and surgical procedures have a small risk of heavy bleeding or infection. You cannot drive for 24 hours after receiving sedating medication.

 What do abortion pills look like? 

Both mifepristone and misoprostol are sold in tablet or pill form. Misoprostol pills usually, but not always, have a unique six-sided shape. Mifepristone is usually a round, white pill. If someone is selling these medications in capsule form, they are not legitimate. (A capsule is a shell or container, usually made of gelatin, that contains a medication.)

How many abortion pills do I need to buy?

If you have access to both mifepristone and misoprostol, you will need 1 mifepristone pill of 200 mg and at least 4 misoprostol pills of 200 each. If you are 10–12 weeks pregnant, you may need to take 1 or 2 extra doses (4 or 8 extra pills) of misoprostol to finish the abortion process. But If you have access to misoprostol only, you will need at least 12 misoprostol pills of 200mcg each if you are less than 13 weeks pregnant.
