POSSIBLE COMPLICATIONS

Second trimester abortion is a safe surgical procedure and has approximately the same rate of complications as normal childbirth. Complications range from minor to severe, including the rare event of death. However, deaths that occur during abortions in the second trimester are usually the result of physical complications present prior to the procedure. Therefore, it is very important that you inform us fully about your medical history and any drugs, legal or illegal, that you are using.

Complications that can occur during or after the abortion include infection, incomplete abortion (where some of the placenta remains in the uterus), injuries to the uterus, cervical tear, heavy and prolonged bleeding, whole body complications such as blood clotting problems, adverse reactions to the drugs, shock, cardiac arrest, amniotic fluid embolism and possible sterility. If you have a multiple pregnancy, the chances of complications increase. There is also the possibility of cervical incompetence which may result in problems maintaining a pregnancy in the future (possible miscarriage, stillbirth, low birth weight, premature delivery). Should any of these complications arise, antibiotic drugs and blood transfusions may be required. Remember, although many types of complications have been listed, the chances of a complication are small.

Many complications are also a result of NOT taking care of yourself after leaving our office. It is essential that you follow the post-operative instructions explained to you. Even though complications are rare, you should call us immediately if there is a problem such as those mentioned on your post-operative instruction sheet. Our doctors are on call 24 hours a day. A complication that is detected early is usually easily treated and corrected before it can become a major complication.

 
 
PAYMENT

We require your entire procedure fee to be paid before the procedure is begun. Payment can be made in cash, money order, or credit card (MasterCard or VISA). Most insurance plans are accepted, but must be verified prior to your visit.

You may also have additional fees if the doctor or medical staff determines that you need extra medications or testing. This may include, but is not limited to: injectable antibiotics, early detection urine pregnancy test, urine culture, throat culture, or Rhogam injection. If you have Rh negative blood it is absolutely essential that you receive a Rhogam injection. There are some supplies which you have the option to purchase while in our office. Methergine tablets or the Depo Provera injection (birth control) are both available for an additional charge. Ask the intake counselor if you have questions about the cost of these medications.

If the procedure is not performed due to patient request or physician advice, you will be responsible for payment for services already rendered such as the pregnancy test, sonogram and lab tests. All other fees will be refunded.
