Why You Should Know the Risks
You should know the risks before any serious medical procedure, including an abortion. Abortion can majorly impact your health and wellness, and you may not be aware of the potential risks involved. Make an informed decision by first understanding the risks.Most abortions are outpatient procedures, which means you are not directly monitored by a medical professional. This means you are responsible for knowing the signs and symptoms of complications to protect your health from life-threatening complications. Understanding when to contact emergency services has the potential to save your life.
What to do Before an Abortion
An abortion decision is ultimately up to you and should be carefully considered, just like your other options.
The Mayo Clinic states, “Making the decision to have an abortion might not be easy. Consider seeking support from your partner, a family member, or a friend as you think about your options. Talk with your health care provider to get answers to your questions, help you weigh alternatives, and consider the impact the procedure may have on your future.”
