Are You Considering Abortion?

Abortion is a serious medical decision that will impact your future in a big way. Some women experience more risks than others. There are two types of abortion procedures: medical and surgical abortion. 

You will need to confirm your pregnancy details through pregnancy testing and an ultrasound to determine what type of abortion you could be eligible for. 

Physical Risks

Common risks of surgical abortion include perforation of the uterus, damage to the cervix, scar tissue on the uterine wall, and infection. 

Risks of medical abortion include incomplete abortion (may need to be followed by surgical abortion), heavy and prolonged bleeding, infection, fever, and digestive system discomfort.

Mental Health Risks

A study published by the National Library of Medicine states, “Some women do have significant mental health issues that are caused, triggered, aggravated, or complicated by their abortion experience.”

Knowing how abortion can affect your physical and mental health is important. Make a decision that you are comfortable with.
