What are the Different Types of Surgical Abortion Procedures?

There are two main safe in-clinic abortion methods: aspiration abortion, mostly known as a Manual Vacuum Aspiration (MVA) and Dilation and Evacuation (D&E). Access depends on gestational age, your geographic location, the availability of equipment, the provider´s indications, and personal preference [1].
