How long can you terminate a pregnancy?

In a woman’s life there can be different circumstances, difficult situations and difficult conditions arise. If pregnancy and the birth of a baby are completely unacceptable for you, and you finally decided to get rid of the fetus, then the question of how long you can terminate the pregnancy is fully justified.

The maximum period to which it is possible to terminate a pregnancy without serious consequences for health is 12 weeks. After that, this procedure is possible only in exceptional cases (rape or deprivation of maternal rights).

  • The easiest and safer way is medical abortion. A woman takes a medicine (drug) that stops the development of the fetus and causes a miscarriage in the early period. This option is possible up to a period of 6 weeks. It is important to remember that the process should take place under the supervision of a doctor in a hospital.You can never do this at home by yourself! It is very dangerous!
  • Up to 7 weeks, you can make a sparing option abortion - vacuum. This is a cleaning with a special vacuum device.
  • After 7 weeks and up to 12, a surgical operation, the so-called cleaning.

All types of abortions are unsafe. In all cases, the presence of a professional is necessary!
