Surgical methods for first trimester termination of pregnancy

Dilatation and curettage, electric vacuum aspiration and manual vacuum aspiration are all safe and effective for first-trimester termination of pregnancy. Electric vacuum aspiration needs less time to perform than dilatation and curettage. Manual vacuum aspiration is associated with less pain than electric vacuum aspiration in cases of early terminations, but manual vacuum aspiration involves greater procedural difficulty compared with electric vacuum aspiration in cases of late terminations.
