Advantages of Medical Abortion
Medical abortion avoids a surgical procedure. Some women report that they have had a surgical abortion in the past, and found the procedure unpleasant. Medical abortion allows them to have the Freedom of Choice we all deserve. Medical abortion resembles a miscarriage, which occurs at home. Some women find this idea more natural and private, and appreciate the control that they have over the timing and setting of events. If a woman chooses this option it is best if she is able to “clear her schedule” such as work, childcare, or social occasions. Women are advised to stay at home, take the pain medication to minimize potential discomfort. Even though some medications are used at home you are under our care and we are available to you at all times. Because of our years of experience, patient satisfaction levels and our success rates are very high with this procedure.
