What You Should know about abortion

Abortion is not a simple procedure. Abortion involves health risks that you should be aware of. There are two types of abortions: medical (medication) abortion and surgical abortion. Each abortion procedure aims at terminating a pregnancy. Both come with side effects and health risks.

Side Effects of Abortion:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Diarrhea
  • Headache
  • Cramping
  • Bleeding, including blood clots

Before you consider abortion or another option, you must confirm your pregnancy. After taking an at-home pregnancy test, confirm your pregnancy through a lab-quality pregnancy test and an ultrasound to accurately date your pregnancy.
