Abortion Pill

2-6-abortion-pillWomen usually have questions concerning the abortion pill. Taking a pill might seem like a quick solution to an immediate problem, but it is not without risk. We know that there is a lot of differing information out there.  If you’re thinking of using the abortion pill or having a medical abortion, we are here to help you make an informed decision.

What is the Abortion Pill?

The Abortion Pill uses two medications, Mifepristone and Misoprostol, to end a pregnancy. These medications cause changes in the lining of the uterus and cause muscle contractions that expel the pregnancy tissue. The French pharmaceutical company, Roussel-Uclaf, patented the drug. The company’s initials provide the first part of the drug’s label, so the pill is sometimes called RU-486.

Patients will have bleeding and cramping (sometimes heavy bleeding with severe cramping) like those that occur during an early miscarriage.  Therefore take note of your next steps.

Other risks/Side Effects include:

– Nausea or vomiting
– Diarrhea
– Chills
– Fever
– Headache
– Dizziness
– Fatigue
– Inability to get pregnant due to infection or complication of an operation
– Allergic reaction to the medicines
– Hemorrhage (heavy bleeding) possibly requiring treatment with an operation, a blood transfusion, or both
– Incomplete removal of the unborn child, placenta, or contents of the uterus, requiring an operation
– Need for Surgery
– Death

Most of all, speak to a nurse before taking the Abortion Pill.  A nurse can assist you with a free ultrasound.  Note that we do not refer for abortion procedures.
