The type of abortion you can get mostly depends on how many weeks you have been pregnant (gestational age).
Abortion Pill – Up to 10 Weeks
If you are 10 weeks pregnant or less, you might be considering the abortion pill.
The abortion pill is medicine that ends a pregnancy. It’s part of a procedure called a medical abortion.
Essentially, a medical abortion is a series of drugs that cause the termination of a pregnancy. Anesthesia isn’t used.
The abortion pill requires several doctor visits. You can’t get the abortion pill over the counter. It has to be prescribed by a doctor.
The doctor will verify you are pregnant, find out how many weeks you have been pregnant, and discuss your health. The abortion pill can usually be taken up to 10 weeks into a pregnancy.

Surgical Abortion – Up to 12 Weeks
If you’re more than 10 weeks pregnant, surgical abortion is a type of abortion that could be available to you. Medical abortion probably wouldn’t be used.
Surgical abortion means ending a pregnancy with a procedure that’s like surgery. It requires invasive procedures and medical tools used by a doctor to end the pregnancy.
A type of surgical abortion that’s usually available up to 12 weeks is called dilation and curettage with vacuum aspiration. It’s sometimes shortened to D&C.
D&C is a surgical procedure that requires a doctor and anesthesia.
