Abortion at twenty weeks

An abortion at 20+ weeks is not much different than an early abortion, except that the preganncy is more advanced.

They use suction aspiration to suction the pregnancy, and they also use forcepts and a curette to ensure that all tissue is removed so that no comlications occur.

You can be put to sleep for this.

Different clinics have different prices.

Some states, if you are willing to travel, offer lower cost later abortion services.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Abortion at 20 weeks and more,is definitely more risky than an early trimester abortion.It is not advisable to opt for a late abortion process,if you have the chance earlier.if you abort it,abort it at an earliest.Less risk,less complication.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counseling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
