In terms of early abortion, there are two treatment options: medication abortion and aspiration abortion. Medication abortion is an abortion that is performed through the use of medication. Women who choose this method will take the pills to end their pregnancy.
These medications can be taken at a doctor's office, the privacy of home or anywhere else where a woman may feel comfortable. Typically, a woman will not need to return to the doctor’s office unless a complication occurs or she has additional questions or concerns. Aspiration abortion requires the use of medical equipment to terminate a pregnancy.
This kind of procedure has to take place at a doctor’s office, and it involves a doctor inserting an instrument into your body through the vagina to remove the pregnancy. While invasive and possibly uncomfortable, this type of abortion can be performed a little later than medication abortions and can be completed in just a few minutes.
Finding out that you are unexpectedly pregnant can be very worrying.
You may feel that you need a solution straight away.
If possible, try to take a few days to collect your thoughts and talk to people.
Usually women find out they are pregnant as soon as they miss a period.
Yes this makes you very worried about the pregnancy.
An abortion can take place at any time up to 24 weeks in the pregnancy, so there is no need to rush.

Immediately afterwards, you will usually feel crampy tummy (abdominal) pain, like period pain. You can take simple painkillers such as the ones you might use for period pain.
The pain usually settles in a few hours. After the abortion it is normal to have some vaginal bleeding.
This should be no worse than a period and should be stopping after a week. While you are bleeding you should not use tampons or have sex.
This is because you have an increased risk of getting an infection at this time.
Be aware that you can become pregnant again immediately after an abortion. This is why discussing contraception with your doctor at the clinic is a good idea.
