Her Smart Choice Women’s Health Center Educational Series Presents ‘How Do Women Feel After A Pregnancy Termination?’ abortion

 

Did you know most women DO NOT regret their decision to terminate a pregnancy and are no more likely to experience mental health problems than women who carry an unplanned pregnancy to term?

 

 

What if you’ve  already made your decision, but you are still not sure about your emotional health after the procedure? And you wonder, what will you possibly feel after pregnancy termination?

  1. The most common emotional reactions after pregnancy termination are minimal or none as it’s a personal choice. 
  2. A small group of women may feel relief, transient guilt, sadness, and a sense of loss.
  3. There is no good evidence from large surveys that choosing to terminate an unwanted pregnancy places a woman at higher risk of subsequent depression than choosing to deliver an unwanted baby.
  4. The percentage of women who regret carrying and delivering an unwanted pregnancy is very high.

The type of abortion procedure you have depends on a few factors, including how far along you are in your pregnancy, your medical suitability, which procedures are available in your area, and your preferences. A health care provider can also discuss the options with you to help you make an informed decision.

What Should You Look For In An Abortion?

 

What Should You Look For In An Abortion?

 

Her Smart Choice Women’s Health Center Educational Series Presents ‘What Should You Look For In An Abortion?’

 

We understand it is difficult to know that you are pregnant and not ready! If you have made your decision to terminate or thinking about terminating your pregnancy, here are few major factors you want to consider:

  • Is it safe?
  • What methods are available?
  • Will I be able to have kids in the future?
  • How much pain or bleeding will I have?
  • Where can I get the procedure done?
  • What is my benefit and expected outcome?
  • What does it cost?.
  • What is the difference between Medical and Surgical Abortion?

 

 

 

 

 

Many women have questions about what is true or not based on what they have heard about abortion:

  • MYTH 1: Abortion is dangerous

♀ FACT: Legal abortion is one of the safest medical procedures available today. While abortion does have some risk, on the whole, carrying a pregnancy and giving birth have been found to be more risky than having an abortion. It is important to know that abortion performed by someone who is not trained (for example, by a woman herself or someone who is not a health care provider) may not be safe and can lead to serious complications, including bleeding, infection, infertility, and even death.

 

  • MYTH 2: Abortion will make me infertile

♀ FACT: When an abortion is performed safely by someone who has training, it does not lead to difficulty getting pregnant in the future.

 

  • MYTH 3: Abortion increases risk of breast cancer.

♀ FACT: Several studies have conclusively shown that having an abortion does not increase the risk of developing breast cancer.

 

  • PROBABLE MYTH 4: Abortion increases my chance of miscarriage in the future

♀ FACT: A number of well-designed studies have found that early abortions do not increase the risk of miscarriage, preterm delivery, or other complications with future pregnancies.

Your health care provider is the best source of information for questions and concerns related to your medical problem.

Which Type of Abortion is Right for You?

 

Her Smart Choice Women’s Health Center Educational Series Presents ‘Which Type Of Abortion Is Right For You?’ abortion abortion pills surgical abortion

 

Did you know 1 in 4 women in the US will have an abortion by the age of 45?

There are two different ways an abortion can be performed in an OB/GYN’s office.

  1. The first is a medical abortion – meaning the abortion or pregnancy termination is completed by taking pills orally.
  2. The second is a surgical abortion. It’s performed as a standard surgical procedure called a D&C (Dilatation and Curettage) at a clinic or hospital.

 

 

 

The type of procedure you choose depends on several factors, including:

  • How far along you are in your pregnancy?
  • Which procedures are available in your area? 
  • What are your personal preferences?

 

Options available may be different at different stages of pregnancy. 

You might choose a medication abortion if you are less than ten weeks and wish to avoid an invasive procedure and anesthesia and prefer the privacy of being at home when you pass the pregnancy.

Which Type Of Abortion Is Right For You?

 

The benefits of medical abortion are (abortion pills):

  • No instruments or suction will be used, so you will not be exposed to the chance of cervical injury and uterine perforation that rarely occur with surgical abortion.
  • There is a very small likelihood of infection after medical abortion.
  • You will be at home during the actual abortion process. 

If you are more than ten weeks pregnant, you might consider a surgical or aspirational abortion. This process takes place at a clinic or hospital under anesthesia. The abortion will be completed in one to two days. The time spent in the clinic is generally three to six hours.

The benefits of surgical abortion are:

  • It can be performed later in the pregnancy than a medical abortion.
  • It usually involves only one visit to the clinic.
  • There’s usually less bleeding and cramping than with a medical abortion.

Worldwide, the estimated rate for abortion between 2010 and 2014 was 35 out of 1000 women (3.5%)  ages 15 to 44. The rate in resource-rich countries was 27 per 1000 (2.7%) and in resource-limited countries was 37 per 1000 (3.7%). 

The highest rate was in the Caribbean with 65 per 1000 (6.5%), and the lowest rate was in North America 17 per 1000 (1.7%)  and northern or western Europe 18 per 1000 (1.8%). 

 

An estimated 25% of all pregnancies worldwide ended in induced abortion. Similarly, in the United States, close to one in four women will have an abortion during her reproductive life. Using standards set by the World Health Organization, abortion is considered medically safe when recommended methods are used by trained persons. Having an abortion does not make it harder to get pregnant again. Abortions do not harm your health, and they do not harm the health of your future babies.

If you are pregnant and considering an abortion, only you can know if the decision is right for you. It is your fundamental right to choose. You may or may not want to talk to a friend or family member, your partner, or someone else you trust. 

You can always talk to a supportive health care provider or clinics that provide abortion services. It is often helpful to share your thoughts and feelings about this decision with people who will support you no matter what you decide. Asking others for their input may be helpful, but if you feel that someone is not letting you make your own decision or is trying to force you to make a particular decision, we recommend seeking additional help from a clinic or hospital.

Is Abortion Safe?

 

Is Abortion Safe?

 

Her Smart Choice Women’s Health Center Educational Series Presents ‘Is Abortion Safe?’

 

Did you know over 99.75% of abortions do not cause major medical problems? 

In the early 1970s, the Population Council and CDC conducted a significant study on abortion safety; they concluded that abortion was considerably safer than continuing a pregnancy to delivery. By 1975, the Institute of Medicine had concluded that the public health benefits of abortion were well established. 

 

 

Recently, researchers at UC-San Francisco used California Medicaid data on 54,911 abortions to see how many women had an emergency room visit or hospitalization as a result. The overall complication rate was 2% and most complications were minor. Only 0.03% of patients were transferred by ambulance to an emergency department on the day of the abortion.

So, if you are still asking: “Is abortion safe?,” here are a few more helpful points.

  1. A medical abortion that is performed in the United States in an Ob/Gyn’s office is safe and effective care. 
  2. 3 in 10 women in the U.S. will have an abortion by the time they are 45 years old. 
  3. Complications for all abortions are rare and safer when performed earlier in gestation. 
  4. While any type of procedure carries associated risks that no medical procedure is 100% safe. The possibility of any major complication occurring in a hospital is 0.31% while the risk of minor complications such as an infection or failure from medicine is about 2-5%.  
  5. Abortion is very common. In the hands of an experienced physician, it is 99.7% safe while giving birth is 14 times riskier than having an abortion.
