The Physical Risks of Abortion

You may wonder how risky the abortion process is to your physical health. There are different potential risks based on the type of abortion procedure. 

Here are common risks of a medical abortion (the abortion pill):

  • Heavy and prolonged bleeding
  • Infection
  • Incomplete abortion (which is when parts of the pregnancy remain in the uterus)
  • An ongoing pregnancy, if the drugs don’t work
  • Digestive system discomfort 

Common risks associated with a surgical abortion include:

  • Uterine perforation (this occurs when a surgical instrument pokes a hole in your uterus)
  • Scar tissue on the uterine wall
  • Infection, which can become life-threatening without treatment
  • Cervical damage

Confirm Your Pregnancy Details

To best safeguard your health, pregnancy confirmation services are needed to understand your pregnancy better. 

Once you’ve confirmed your pregnancy through our free, lab-quality pregnancy testing, an ultrasound is an essential step of the confirmation process. 

Ultrasound confirms how far along you are, the location of your pregnancy (whether it’s growing within your uterus), viability, and if there are any potential complications. 

It’s necessary to determine how far along you are if you are considering abortion, as each procedure is carried out at different points of a pregnancy.
