Stopping a pregnancy is dealing with it when it has already happened. In other translations, it can mean prevention of pregnancy for women who are too young to take care of themselves in a pregnancy. The latter can be dealt with by the use of contraception to prevent conception and implantation among women who are not ready for have children. Anyhow, this article will deal mostly with abortion, which can be done in several different ways. Women have been performing abortions by themselves at home although with the directions of a doctor. You can stop a pregnancy when it is young and there is nothing you can do about at home when it is past the first trimester. Stopping a pregnancy at home involves the usage of medication which will suffocate the baby by reducing the amount of nutrients in the amniotic fluid that are needed for it. Two kinds of medication will be used, with the last one of them being used for the cleaning of the uterus. The larger the baby, the more physical the abortion gets and it is important to work with a professional. Abortion in the second trimester is very dangerous even in the hands of a professional as it mainly involves the physical removal of the baby from the uterus.
