Abortion in the second trimester - from 13 to 24 weeks - is generally performed using a procedure called Dilation & Evacuation (D&E). The D&E procedure is different from a 1st trimester abortion in a number of ways.
Later abortion may require a 2 to 3 day process that includes preparations to gradually/slowly dilate or open the cervix before the actual abortion. Later abortion may also require a longer stay in the facility and additional medications.
What to Expect
When making your appointment - expect the staff person to be professional, knowledgeable, and nice.
Laboratory tests will also be part of your day. You may have a pregnancy test, anemia screening, and Rh type. Expect to give a urine and/or blood sample.
Later abortion requires an ultrasound to accurately date the gestational age of the pregnancy. This is done at the beginning of your appointment process to determine whether you are eligible for an abortion at the facility.
Expect some private time with a staff person to review your medical history, birth control plan, and other papers. This is also a time for you to ask questions and raise any concerns you may have.

There are two common methods for performing a medical abortion.
The first procedure, using a drug called Mifeprex, also known as RU486, is taken orally in a doctor's office and followed two days later by another medication called misoprostol, which causes the uterus to contract, resulting in the expulsion of the pregnancy tissue.
More than 90% of all abortions are performed in the 1st trimester - up through 12 weeks. This surgical procedure - called suction aspiration - is 7 to 10 times safer than childbirth and takes less time to complete. There are a variety of pain-management or anesthesia options available depending upon the facility. First trimester abortion is medically quite simple, carries a low risk for complication, and allows you to resume most of your normal schedule within a day or two.

Many providers include an ultrasound for their early abortion patients, to accurately determine the gestational age of the pregnancy.
Expect some private time with a staff person to review your medical history, birth control plan, and other papers. This is also a time for you to ask questions and raise any concerns you may have. In many facilities this is also the time to talk about your decision to have an abortion. Being clear and resolved in this decision is what providers hope for you.
Your abortion will take place in an exam or procedure room with the physician and an assistant. If you are using general anesthesia there will also be a professional administering those medications.
After the abortion you will have up to an hour to rest and recover.
