Types of Abortion

There are 2 main types of abortion procedure, depending on the duration of the pregnancy

< 12-14 weeks gestation

The procedure is called vacuum aspiration, where a small tube is placed into the womb under sedation (painless procedure) to empty the contents inside the womb. No scraping is usually performed to minimize the risk of scarring.

14-24 weeks gestation

The procedure is known as MTPT (mid trimester pregnancy termination) and is carried out at Thomson Medical Centre. It is a more complicated 2-staged procedure involving initial delivery of the fetus vaginally, followed by a surgical procedure to clean the womb in the operating theatre. This procedure may take 1-2 days in the hospital.

Beyond 24 weeks

Abortion is strictly prohibited beyond 24 weeks unless the pregnancy jeopardizes the life of the pregnant woman.
