The two main types of abortion are medication and surgical. Which type of procedure is an option for you depends on how far along your pregnancy has progressed. You can find this out by having an ultrasound performed.
Medication abortion, or the abortion pill, will end a pregnancy by stopping the flow of progesterone to the pregnancy and subsequently inducing labor to remove the fetus through the vagina. This process results in heavy bleeding and other discomforts.
Depending on the progress of the pregnancy and the size of the fetus, there are different types of surgical abortions available. Basically, surgical abortions use tools and local anesthesia to open the cervix and remove the fetus. After the procedure ends, women often deal with cramping and additional side effects.
