Surgical 2nd Trimester Abortion
Surgical 2nd trimester abortion (14+ weeks LMP)
On the first day, dilators will be placed in the cervix to gently and slowly open the cervix overnight. You will return the next day to have the procedure. This is the safest and most comfortable way to perform a surgical 2nd trimester abortion after 14 weeks.
In some cases, especially after 20 weeks, the surgical 3rd trimester abortion may be done in a 3 step procedure in which dilators are placed on the first and second days and the procedure finished on the third day.
