Abortion is a medical procedure that, just like any other procedure, comes with its costs and potential risks. Receiving this procedure, at any stage, will require some planning, recovery time, and perhaps further recovery down the road. Two methods of abortion exist: medical and surgical. These abortion procedures have different requirements, such as term limits.
Otherwise known as the abortion pill, a medical abortion typically consists of a two-pill regimen. The first halts the delivery of progesterone to the pregnancy and the second induces contractions to expel the pregnancy from the uterus. This procedure is FDA-approved up to ten weeks of pregnancy.
This abortion procedure is more intensive, requiring visits to an abortion provider and subsequent recovery and follow-up. Typically, tools are used to dilate the cervix so that the pregnancy can then be removed from the uterus.
Both of these procedures have their potential risks such as severe bleeding, cramping, or incomplete abortion.
At this point, you may want to find out more about these procedures. Taking an in-depth look at what these procedures consist of can help you be more prepared as you move forward, so nothing takes you by surprise.
Abortion With Twins?
As you consider your abortion options, you may be wondering whether abortion procedures are different when it comes to twins. So far it seems that the process for abortion with twins is the same as abortion with a single pregnancy. It is always important to keep in mind that there is potential for abortion with multiple pregnancies to be more intensive or difficult, requiring more recovery time or extra cost.
Considering Your Options
The most important part of processing your options may be working through your own feelings regarding your pregnancies. Think about abortion and how it lines up with your values and dreams—do you sense you might have difficulty with this procedure and your emotions during or after? If you have any hesitancy, you might benefit from talking this over with a nonjudgmental professional such as a therapist or pregnancy consultant. You want to make sure you’re going forward with your eyes wide open, empowered in your decision! Perhaps it may be helpful in your decision-making process to consider your other options such as adoption or parenting. Comparing these to abortion can be a helpful exercise to help you further determine what you want.
Considering abortion with twins is a difficult path to travel. You may be dealing with uncertainty as you move forward. Our pregnancy consultants would love to walk with you during this time of your life! We look forward to giving you quiet space to process your options.
