Abortion for pcos patient

Patient

Q: I am a pcos patient. is abortion safe fr me? i am 25 yrs old n in my 5th week.
wich method is best-medically or surgically?

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query.
Abortion is safe for a pcos patient. Abortion be it medical or surgical must always be done under a doctor's guidance under aseptic precautions with facility for intensive care and blood transfusion. At 5 weeks if there are no risk factors first option would be medical abortion, if it fails or any complications, then a surgical procedure like dilatation and curettage (D&C) may be needed.
Hope this helped.
Regards
