Abortos Por Pildoras o Cirugia

If you are under 18, you may or may not have to inform a parent or guardian in order to get a teen abortion – it depends on the laws where you live. In New York no parental involvement is required. It is important to take action as soon as possible because teen abortion is very safe, but there are more risks the longer you wait.

According to the National Abortion Federation, 4 out of 5 Americans have had sex by age 20. The average age that individuals lose their virginity is 17. That means teenagers and young adults are at risk for sexually transmitted infections and pregnancy for many years. Details about teen abortion procedures are below:

Suction Aspiration: This method is done in the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. A medical professional gives the patient a general or local anesthetic and the cervical muscle is stretched open and a tube is used to suck out the content of the womb.

Dilation and Curettage: A D&C is a method available during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy.

Abortion Pills: Abortion pills are taken orally. RU-486 works by contracting the uterus to help with pass out the blood clots.

Dilation and Evacuation: A D&E is a procedure available during the first 12 weeks of pregnancy. It is similar to a D&C, but also involves inserting a tool in the womb to extract the body.
