After abortion care to improve the recovery

Women who buy Abortion Pills need to be aware of the things that may happen after the use of pills.

When a woman does have an unplanned pregnancy and she visits the clinic, she is being provided with the three options:

  • Medical abortion (for up to 9 weeks)
  • Surgical abortion with dilation (for up to 21 weeks)
  • Surgical abortion with vacuum aspiration (for up to 21 weeks)

Based on the gestation period, budget and health conditions of the women the method to terminate the pregnancy can be chosen. Most of the women do prefer to have medical abortion and women do not need to visit the clinic as it is the most affordable method and allows women to terminate the pregnancy in privacy.

The after-effects, which are being experienced in both cases are the same and if the woman does end the pregnancy after 21 weeks, then there are chances that she may have to deal with the risk of privacy.

  1. Cramping
  2. Diarrhea
