Which is Safer – a Vacuum Aspiration Abortion or the Abortion Pills?

Both a vacuum aspiration abortion and an abortion with pills are very safe. Vacuum aspirations have a success rate higher than 98% and a complication rate of less than 1%. Abortion with pills have a success rate higher than 95% and a complication rate of less than 3%. [1]

The decision about which method to choose depends on your personal preference, budget, and availability in your location.
