Continue reading to learn more and see if this might be the option for your unique situation.
What is the abortion pill?
The abortion pill, which is also known as medication abortion or the brand name “Mifeprex,” is a safe and effective way to end a pregnancy. It involves taking two different medications: mifepristone, which stops the development of the pregnancy, and misoprostol, which causes the uterus to contract and empty. These two together will help in terminating a pregnancy effectively.
When can the abortion pill be used to terminate a pregnancy?
This option is available up to 10 weeks following the first day of your last period and can be done in the comfort and the privacy of your own home with medical supervision. We do want patients to note that this option should only be used under the care of a qualified healthcare provider and should not be purchased over-the-counter or online. This ensures proper safety and effectiveness. After the abortion has been performed, women are encouraged to visit our practice again to ensure the procedure worked in terminating their pregnancy with medication alone.
