When we think of taking medicine, we often picture something pretty simple:
- Have a headache.
- Take medicine.
- Headache vanishes.
This is not how the Abortion Pill works.
Many women are often surprised by the process and regret their choice of abortion procedure. Here’s what you should know about the Abortion Pill process:
- Two medications are taken 24-48 hours apart. When and where they are taken depend on state laws. Many abortion clinic web sites caution “not being alone” and knowing where to get “medical help in case of an emergency”.
- The first drug, mifepristone, cuts off the progesterone and causes the death of the embryo (baby). The second drug, misoprostol (taken a day or two later), causes contractions which expel the embryo, blood, and tissue from the body.
- An office visit determines if the abortion succeeded or if a surgical abortion is needed.
- Risks and side effects include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, dizziness, chills, fever, back pain, pelvic pain, rashes, headache, fatigue, abdominal pain, bleeding/hemorrhage, immune system suppression/infection/death, and undiagnosed ectopic pregnancy.
- Women sometimes have second thoughts after they take the first pill. Although not a guarantee, we can sometimes help reverse the effects of the first pill. Call this number if you are experiencing second thoughts: 1.877.558.0333.
