Does abortion hurt?

Medical abortion, also known as non-surgical abortion, doesn’t hurt as it is all about taking pills. But there may be some period-like cramps after taking them. However, the intensity of the pain will differ between women. 

Surgical abortion is somewhat painful, but your healthcare provider will give you some kind of anesthesia before performing the surgery. The post-abortion period may be painful with cramps. You can take pain relieving medication as prescribed by your healthcare provider.
