Effects of Abortion

Our center ~ Metropolitan Medical Associates

Is an abortion safe?

Having an early abortion performed by a doctor is one of the safest medical procedures there are. A D&C and the Abortion Pill are the safest methods for an early abortion. The risks involved are minor, and may include excessive bleeding, mild infections, or incomplete abortion, all of which are treatable by a physician.
Long term complications from abortion are exceedingly rare when performed by a qualified gynecologist, and so, the abortion is not expected to interfere with future fertility.

Breast Cancer and Abortion

Abortions do not cause breast cancer. Research shows this myth is not true, and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) confirms such findings.

Risk of Death with Abortion

With the legalization of abortion, the risk of death has been significantly reduced and is exceedingly rare. An abortion whether surgical or medical, should be performed by a licensed gynecologist in an appropriate setting. The risks associated with abortions increase with the length of the pregnancy, thus, the earlier it is done, the safer it is. The cumulative experience of our gynecologists in 2nd trimester abortions make our complication rate among the lowest in the nation.
