This general course of action applies to both first semester and second trimester abortions.
However, there are certain differences between the two that are important to understand:
Most abortions are performed in the first trimester (6 to 12 weeks). This is a relatively low-risk procedure, often referred to as a D&C (dilation and curettage). This procedure only takes about five minutes and may be done under local or conscious sedation.
Abortion in the second trimester (13 to 24 weeks) is called a D&E, or Dilation and Evacuation. In some of these procedures, a natural dilator known as laminaria is used to open the cervix over a period of several hours -- or in pregnancies over 19 weeks, overnight.
Don’t forget, we are always here for you! Please feel free to call us at any time between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. to speak to a counselor or nurse, if any questions or concerns should arise.
