Risks come with both medical and surgical abortion. Some risks that occur after taking the abortion pill (medical abortion) include the following:

  • Heavy and prolonged bleeding
  • Infection
  • Digestive system discomfort
  • Incomplete abortion, which may need to be followed by surgical abortion
  • An ongoing unwanted pregnancy if the procedure doesn’t work

Though there are multiple types of surgical abortion procedures, they share similar physical risks, including:

  • Perforation of the uterus (when a surgical instrument pokes a hole in the uterus)
  • Damage to the cervix
  • Scar tissue on the uterine wall
  • Infection
  • Excessive bleeding
