A first trimester abortion is safe. There are risks involved, just like any other medical procedure, but the chances of complications during a first trimester abortion are rare. As long as you are having the procedure done in a sterile clinic by a qualified physician, you will be fine. Pain can be remedied by either painkillers if you are getting the medical or by anesthesia or sedation if you are getting the surgical.

No abortion is guaranteed safe, or clause free in any way shape or form. You can have one at 5 weeks. It's best to do it as early as possible tho. The longer you wait, the more dangerous and harder it is to do. What they do is give you a local anesthetic (you're awake the whole time, and know everything that goes on.) Then they will freeze the baby/fetus/embryo and give you a DNC to clean out your uterus. You're going to be sore for quite some time. It's best to have a friend with you for support. You're at 5 weeks so if you go in now they can give you the chemical pill which is easier to handle (body wise) Also do all available research you possibly can not just on abortion but any other options you feel you might be open to. So that way you know whatever decision you made is one you can handle for the rest of your life. Call your local clinic and you can setup a brief appointment to talk with them about what all you might have on your mind decision/procedure wise.

Yes, you'll more likely than not get the abortion pill. Meaning it wont be a surgical abortion. The pill is a lot easier than a surgical abortion, so it'll go a lot smoother for you. It will be painful, so be prepared for that. Good luck and I hope this is really what you want.

At 5 weeks you could use the RU486 pill . It is safe and effective and cost a lot less. You take one pill in the office in front of the Doctor and then takes a few more over the next few days.

there is no time in a baby's life to think he or she is suitable for an abortion. The baby is 6 weeks old? You are..how old? are you suitable to be a murderer? no? then, do not do it. Because your baby is growing, and he is happier than you now. THIS is the moment to BEGIN loving him. He will remember your love by the time he is out of your body. He will be the only one who really loves you. Forget about how 'old' he or she is now. Do not think you can think for himself. Watch this video, it shows you what an abortion is. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2GsucBy6k... Watch it till the end without the palms of your hands sweating, or you heart speeding, or feeling scared. Just by watching. Sounds like a baby reaction to an abortion? He IS a baby. And more than he is your baby, YOU are his mother. NOW.
