FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How safe is abortion?
Very safe. Our doctors have years of experience specializing in abortion care. It’s unusual to have even minor problems.
When can I go back to work?
Most women return to their usual activities the next day. You will need to avoid strenuous activity and heavy lifting for 2 weeks.
How do I know whether to choose a surgical abortion or another abortion?
This must be done very early in the pregnancy, under 26 weeks from the first day of your last period. It is more involved than a surgical procedure and may require more than one follow-up visit. Some women like the idea of using medicine rather than instruments for the abortion. A surgical abortion is more efficient than a pill because everything is usually completed in one visit.
Will I be able to get pregnant again after having an abortion?
Generally, abortion does not affect your fertility. You should consider the day of the abortion the same as the first day of a period with ovulation in about 14 days. You could become pregnant again right away.
