Are you confronted with an unexpected pregnancy? We understand the shock and anxiety you could be experiencing. You are not alone. You deserve to know about the abortion pill process and the risks involved before making up your mind. Get the facts you need to make a confident decision with your options and move forward.

How Does the Abortion Pill Work?

The abortion pill, or RU-486, is known as medication abortion. Medication abortion involves two drugs, Mifepristone, and Misoprostol, to terminate a pregnancy.

Mifepristone first stops a woman’s womb from absorbing the progesterone pregnancy hormone. As a result, the lining of the uterus thins and stops the embryo from growing. Then Misoprostol is taken at home about 24-48 hours later, which causes the uterus to contract and expel the pregnancy through cramping and bleeding.

It’s important to note that only women up to 10 weeks pregnant are eligible for the abortion pill.

What Are the Risks of the Abortion Pill?

While the abortion pill impacts every woman differently, it does come with risks. Here are some common ones to know about.

Possible risks of medical abortion include:

  • Heavy and prolonged bleeding
  • Infection
  • Fever
  • Digestive system discomfort
  • Incomplete abortion, which may need to be followed by surgical abortion
  • An ongoing unwanted pregnancy if the procedure doesn’t work

Find Out If You’re Eligible

Are you less than 10 weeks pregnant?

Before you move forward with the abortion pill, you will need to know if you have a viable pregnancy under 10 weeks. Ultrasound not only shows you these two things, but also the location of your pregnancy, and if it’s growing within your uterus.

Do you have pregnancy complications?

Pregnancy complications happen and when they do, medication abortion may not be necessary. Some women experience either a miscarriage or an ectopic pregnancy (where the pregnancy grows outside of the uterus). These conditions require medical attention.
