Which procedure is better, the surgical or the chemical?
This is an individual decision. Some women feel the surgical procedure is better because it is not drawn out over the course of a two to three week period. Other women feel the medical abortion procedure may be more advantageous because it can be done earlier in pregnancy, they do not want to undergo surgery or have pelvic exams, and they feel that the abortion pill offers more privacy since the procedure is generally completed at home. The insertion of the Misoprostol is done at home and the patient’s companion, friend, or family member can then remain with her. This can be very important for some patients. Each woman may decide which procedure is best suited for her individual needs.
