When performed in an appropriate medical setting the overall rate of significant complication following abortions is low. When the procedure happens under sub-optimal conditions the risk to the patient increases significantly. In the first hours following the procedure bleeding poses the biggest risk to the patient, in the first days post-procedure the patient is at risk for developing an infection or may develop complications related to retained products of conception. Providers should have a low threshold to transfer any post-abortion complications to a higher level of care.
