An unwanted pregnancy is a frequent occurrence in the life of a woman which comes by surprise and catches one off guard. In some situations women know very quickly how to decide. In others the decision is very difficult, may need time and discussion with trusted people. Counseling with a professional information center can be helpful and show what consequences a decision either way may entail.
If help is needed in making an individual decision we will be glad to be of assistance.
The three methods of abortion
If you have already made the decision for a abortion, three methods are available:
- Medical abortion using Mifegyne® (RU 486)
- Surgical abortion by aspiration under local anesthesia
- Surgical abortion by general anesthesia
There is sufficient experience with all methods. All are safe, highly effective, have few side effects and complications are very rare. No method is better than the others. They differ in the details and procedures. Due to this it is very important that you are thoroughly informed on each method, as this will help you to make the appropriate personal choice.
