How the Abortion Pill Works- click here for side effects
Mifepristone, also known as the abortion pill or RU-486, is prescribed by a doctor within the first seven to nine weeks of pregnancy. Even though physicians prescribe it for women, most women don’t really know how it works. Many physicians will tell you that mifepristone (RU486) is a “light procedure”; or is “relatively quick” and “easy.” That’s not the truth. It isn’t light, quick, or easy.
Mifepristone (RU-486), is a synthetic steroid that blocks a woman’s body from producing progesterone—a hormone her body needs to grow a healthy baby.
When a woman’s body stops getting the progesterone it needs to keep the pregnancy going, the uterus begins to break down and is unable to support the life of the growing fetus. Then her body will start to shed the lining and the developing baby.
The Abortion Pill Process
- A doctor will give a woman a physical exam to determine if she is eligible for this type of medical abortion procedure. You are not eligible if you have any of the following: ectopic pregnancy, ovarian mass, IUD, corticosteroid use, adrenal failure, anemia, bleeding disorders or use of blood thinners, asthma, liver or kidney problems, heart disease, or high blood pressure.
- Antibiotics will be given to prevent infection.
- An oral dose of mifepristone will be given during the first office visit.
- Misoprostol tablets are taken orally or inserted vaginally about 36 to 72 hours after taking the mifepristone. The tablets will cause contractions and expel the fetus. This process may take a few hours or as long as a few days. The woman will need to be examined by her doctor two weeks later to ensure the abortion was complete and to check for complications.
The procedure is unsuccessful approximately 8-10% of the time with the potential of requiring an additional surgical abortion procedure to complete the termination.
