A medication abortion, which is also known as the "abortion pill," can be taken up to 10 weeks after conception. This type of abortion works by ending the flow of progesterone at the pregnancy site and causes a miscarriage that forces your fetus from your body through vaginal bleeding, painful cramps, and severe discomfort.
Once your pregnancy has progressed beyond 10 weeks, a medication abortion is no longer a viable option and you will be left only with the surgical option. A surgical abortion involves the use of tools and local anesthesia to open the cervix and remove the fetus by use of forceps or suction. After this procedure, a woman can expect to deal with cramping, bleeding, fever, and discomfort.
