Are you coping with an unexpected pregnancy, and in the process of pursuing an abortion? Sometimes, individuals facing circumstances like yours don’t want to know what will happen medically during a surgical or medication abortion. Maybe that’s because medical procedures of any kind can feel intimidating. Many women believe getting an abortion without thinking about it too much will be the easiest way to move on. But the decision to end a pregnancy is significant. Your pregnancy choice will affect your physical health, and possibly your emotional health too. That’s why it’s important to approach any pregnancy decision feeling well-informed, even though seeking clarity may feel uncomfortable at times. Know that you don’t have to begin this process on your own!

Why Might a Baseline Understanding of Abortion be Beneficial?
It’s worth repeating: any pregnancy decision will impact your health. All medical procedures involve medical risks, and abortion is no different. It’s helpful to learn the facts and weigh the risks because this process will prepare you to make a decision backed by knowledge, and a more informed choice is a more empowered choice. Also, you know your body better than anyone. You’re best equipped to ask relevant questions and advocate for your needs. Having a baseline understanding of the abortion process might help you lean into that role with greater confidence.
