Medication Abortion, Abortion Pill

If you are 11 weeks or less pregnant, you may be eligible to use the Abortion Pill. The Abortion Pill is a combination of two different medicines, Mifepristone and Misoprostol.

How Medication Abortion Works

Pregnancy needs a hormone called progesterone to grow normally. Mifepristone blocks your body’s own progesterone.

This medicine causes cramping, bleeding, and flu-like symptoms to empty the uterus and feels like a really heavy and crampy period. It is like an early-pregnancy miscarriage. The timing and way you take this medication will depend on how many weeks you are in the pregnancy.

This may be an ultrasound in the office, a phone call, and a urine pregnancy test, or blood work.
