Dangers of Medical Abortion

Dangers and Failure Rates of Medical Abortion

Medical abortion is the safest method that most women prefer due to the absence of complications. On the other hand, it can cause bleeding and strong cramps similar to period pains that might persist for a few weeks before diminishing. They may be painful, but they are temporary, normal, and you can treat them with painkillers and sanitary pads.

What are the side effects of medical abortion? Medical abortion can magnify symptoms of migraines and asthma in some women. Other side effects include diarrhea, faintness, shudders, pains, headaches, nausea, warm flushes, and vomiting.

Abortion: Some Background

Like any other medical procedure, abortion has its dangers. The dangers (complications) of abortions are not significant, but you will be better off knowing them than not.

In general, doing an abortion procedure during the early weeks of pregnancy up to 12 weeks poses no threats whatsoever. It is after that “first trimester” where abortion could be a little complicated. However, if you have an abortion in a safe, clinical setting you have so few things to worry about and you are likely to have a smooth abortion. To be extra safe, avoid buying abortion tablets from the internet because some unethical entities do not care about your health as much as they care about your money.

There are two types of abortions in the United States and Europe, medical (using the abortion pill) and a surgery done in a clinic.
