Abortion Pill

What you need to know if you are considering taking the abortion pill:

Determine how far along you are.

The abortion pill is only effective for pregnancies below a certain age. If you are past a certain week, it may be too late for you to take the abortion pill. Ensure you aren’t putting yourself at risk by getting a free limited ultrasound first and finding out how far along you are.

Make sure the pregnancy is viable.

Approximately 15-25% of pregnancies end in miscarriage. It is important to first get an ultrasound to determine if the pregnancy is viable. An ultrasound is usually required to rule out an ectopic pregnancy. This occurs when the fertilized egg does not correctly move into the uterus. This can be a life-threatening condition and would need immediate action.

 

How much do you know about the abortion pill?

 

  • It’s officially called RU-486 and was approved by the FDA in 2000. Another name for RU-486 is a medical or chemical abortion.

  • The pill is actually two drugs, mifepristone and misoprostol, and it’s taken in two separate doses. (One at the clinic and one at home.)

  • It can cost anywhere between $300-$800.

  • The abortion pill is not the same as the emergency contraceptive (the Morning After Pill or Plan B One-Step.)

  • It is usually taken between 4-6 weeks but can be taken up to 11 weeks in most cases.

  • Is not an option for people with certain medical conditions.

  • Reversal is possible if action is taken after the first dose.

 

What are some side-effects of the abortion pill?

 

  • Incomplete abortion, which may need to be followed by surgical abortion

  • Heavy or prolonged bleeding

  • Infection or septic shock

  • Digestive system pain or discomfort

  • Heavy cramping

  • Fever
