General & Family Physician 's  Response
The Abortions performed prior to nine weeks from the last menstrual period (seven weeks from conception) are performed either surgically (a procedure) or medically (with drugs). Medically the abortion is done using an combination of mifepristone and misoprostol in those who are less than 8 weeks pregnant.Side effects of the drug includes heavy bleeding ,nausea,abdominal pain,vomiting and diarrhoea.
Most abortions are performed under local anesthesia with or without sedation.
All are done by an experienced gynecologist.So you need to get an appointment with a gynecologist near your locality..
