Medicine is used to conduct most induced abortions. In a medical abortion, the woman takes tablets which cause the womb not to react to the body’s pregnancy-preserving hormones. This means that the baby dies. The woman goes back to the hospital after two days, where she is given suppositories that make the womb constrict and the foetus and placenta is pushed out. She can also choose to take the suppositories home and do it there. There is a risk of bleeding and a lot of pain, and there may be a little bleeding for up to two weeks after the abortion.
