In this global procedure, the provider terminates a pregnancy by inserting vaginal suppositories to induce labor contractions and may also insert a laminaria to dilate the cervix. The provider admits the patient to the hospital, inserts the drug and cervical dilator, manages the labor that follows, and delivers the fetus and placenta. The provider then follows the patient in the hospital until discharge. Providers use this method usually after the first trimester, or fourteen weeks, zero days gestation or more.
