Surgical abortion can be done using different ways. The most commonly known is the Dilatation and curettage (D&C). It entails dilating the cervix and scraping off the endometrial lining (lining of the uterus) to remove the products of conception. Another surgical procedure for abortion is the Suction Curettage in which a suction apparatus is inserted inside the uterus to take out the products of conception. As surgical abortion procedures necessitate access inside the uterus, there are risks and complications that may arise from them including infections, lacerations of the vaginal canal and/or cervix, rupture of the uterus, and worse, infertility problem in the future.
