Many women who choose a medical abortion should proceed cautiously and speak with a medical professional about this procedure before committing to it. There are risks and complications that women should be aware of beforehand to help protect their health and safety.
What Will A Professional Tell Me?
A professional can help you look over your health history, any current conditions, and any medications you use.
Sometimes certain procedures are not recommended based on your health history, and medications must be stopped or altered before being combined with other drugs.
If you do not have a trusted provider, find someone who will help guide you to make decisions that minimize threats to your health and always listen to your concerns. You deserve to have a qualified medical professional on your side.
What Concerns Should I Discuss?
Online abortion or at-home abortions usually do not occur under a medical professional’s supervision. Due to this, you will be responsible for watching for any manifestations that point to a medical emergency or complication.
Speak with a professional about these complications and the risks that can occur. Some of these include:
- Heavy bleeding — soaking two or more pads an hour for two hours
- Severe abdominal or back pain
- Fever lasting more than 24 hours
- Foul-smelling vaginal discharge
- Incomplete abortion, which may need to be followed by surgical abortion
- An ongoing pregnancy if the procedure doesn’t work
- Heavy and prolonged bleeding
- Digestive system discomfort
