Early pregnancy termination's are done by two methods: minor surgical and medical. The surgical, or suction procedure, is performed under light ("asleep") anesthesia or local anesthesia. The uterine cervix is carefully dilated enough to insert a sterile suction tube to empty the uterus. Start to finish, the procedure takes about five minutes. It is 100% effective. The medical method uses pills. The first medication, given on Day 1, stops the pregnancy's growth. The pills taken on Day 2 make the uterus contract to empty the uterus, similiar to a mild miscarriage. It is 95% effective. Speak with the doctor to decide which method you prefer.
