What is a Very Early Medical Abortion (VEMA)?

Very Early Medical Abortion (VEMA) is a relatively new development in pregnancy terminations, and allows women to have an abortion as early as 1 day after the missed period or as soon as a pregnancy test shows as positive.

How soon can I have Very Early Medical Abortion (VEMA)?

Very Early Medical Abortion (VEMA) can be carried out as early as 1 day after the missed period and as soon as a pregnancy test becomes positive.

Until recently doctors were anxious not to terminate a pregnancy before a sac was clearly seen by ultrasound for fear that the pregnancy may be located outside the uterus (ectopic pregnancy). However recent studies showed that the incidence of ectopic pregnancy (where the foetus is located outside the uterus) was found to be very small – just 7 in 100,000 women requesting a termination. Even when the abortion pills were given to these women no harmful effect were found.

How successful is Very Early Medical Abortion (VEMA)?

We are very pleased to share that the success rate for having termination at this stage of pregnancy is very high – 98% – and comparable with Medical Abortion With Pill.

Termination of pregnancy either by tablets (Medical) or termination of pregnancy with surgery is even safer at this stage and is associated with less pain and bleeding than if performed even a week later.

What are the advantages of Very Early Medical Abortion (VEMA)?

Very Early Medical Abortion (VEMA) has several advantages: less pain; shorter bleeding time; it happens before maternal bonding takes place; and before symptoms of pregnancy take place, such as nausea and vomiting.

Are there any risks or side effects in Very Early Medical Abortion (VEMA)?

Very Early Medical Abortion abortion is considered a very safe procedure, with few associated risks and side effects.

There is no evidence whatsoever to suggest that an uncomplicated abortion affects your fertility in the future, or health in general.

However, every medical procedure carries at least a small risk of complications and side effects, and Very Early Medical Abortion is no exception.
