Non-surgical abortions, sometimes called “medical abortions,” are performed in the first 6-10 weeks in the first trimester. Non-surgical abortion can be administered in pill form (otherwise known as Mifeprex or RU-486). Mifeprex is approved by the FDA for non-surgical abortion.
This non-surgical method of abortion will stop your pregnancy from growing and vaginal suppositories will help expel your pregnancy. There is a small statistical chance of failure with this method, so you must be physically healthy enough and willing to undergo a surgical abortion in the unlikely event that this non-surgical method fails. In addition, you must be able to commit to 2 or more visits to the office.
You must agree to the following requirements:
- You must agree to have a surgical abortion if the non-surgical abortion fails
- You must be able to receive phone calls from the office
- You must have immediate, reliable access to transportation in the event of an emergency
- You must agree to return to the office for a check-up afterwards
Early in pregnancy an abortion may be performed using a manual aspiration device. This procedure is done in early pregnancies, and is a simple, natural, and gentle method to end the pregnancy. This procedure is similar to the suction aspiration procedure used in abortions up to 12-13 weeks. The gentle aspiration (or Manual Vacuum Aspiration) system consists of thin flexible tubing, but instead of using a machine to create suction, the suction is created silently by a handheld instrument. The flexible tubing is much smaller than those used in later pregnancies. The procedure usually takes less than 5 or 6 minutes to complete.
Gentle aspiration may be performed in a medical office using local anesthesia. There is no scraping or cutting and bleeding is usually minimal. Typically, you can quickly return to your daily activities.
