Can You Get An Abortion At 5 Months
Not in NC: Abortion is regulated in all U.S. states, which often includes the licensing requirements of providers, restrictions on late-term abortion, and parental consent mandates. North Carolina abortion laws are relatively restrictive, requiring the written consent of parents or guardians, banning abortion after 20 weeks (except to save the life or health of the mother), and the requirement that abortion providers be licensed medical doctors. ...Read more
Not on Health Tap: I am sorry but one does not turn to strangers on the internet to get abortion advice. Since you live in the U.S. I would advise you to get to Planned parenthood for your GYN care. They can give you the right advice for your situation. It may be that you should begin to plan to adopt your baby to parents that will raise the child well. But the planned parenthood team will know the law. ...Read more
See below.: At 5 months pregnant you are 21 1/2 weeks pregnant which is in the second trimester. Constitutionally you have the right to terminate a healthy pregnancy at least to the point of fetal viability outside the womb, which originally was between 24 and 27 weeks. However, the "legality" of pregnancy now varies from state to state and the practical availability of abortion services varies even more. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Late abortion: Very late abortions are done only if the fetus is not viable. At eight months gestation, if it is necessary to save the life of a mother, a medical delivery would result in the birth of a premature but living infant and would be a complex medical intervention based on phyisician--mother discussion. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I want to know if I can undergo a medical abortion at 5 weeks cos the doctor I met told me to wait for 8 weeks which is better with less risk?
8 weeks: You don't want to go it before 8 weeks, because there is more of a risk of failure to terminate it. ...Read more
Timing: Do you mean, how long does the procedure take? Usually 2-3 days- 1-2 days for ripening and then the procedure is usually less than 20 minutes depending on location, anesthesia, and so forth. I recommend a reputable location and provider to discuss all of your options and risks/benefits. ...Read more
Yes, however...: There are many herbs with the potential to induce a miscarriage. However, they are much more likely to do so in the first trimester. They could also induce premature labor in late pregnancy. At 5 months it is possible but less likely. See http://www.Localharvest.Org/blog/39774/tags/women & http://www.Localharvest.Org/blog/39774/tags/pregnant most of these are ok in small amounts (like cinnamon). ...Read more
Yes,...: Yes, it can be done after being well counseled and under informed consent. Of note, vasectomy costs much less and vasectomy reversal costs a fortune, and usually health insurance either refuses to pay or very reluctant to cover it. So, be aware of it beforehand. Medically, it's safe as far as studies could tell. ...Read more

State laws vary: In most states you have to be less than 18-20 weeks, other states up to 24 weeks. Only a couple states have limited terminations up to 32 weeks and those are for usually lethal fetal anomalies, not elective reasons. If you're 32 weeks your baby would most likely survive a birth. Consider adoption if you're beyond 20 weeks. ...Read more
