A medication abortion, also known as the abortion pill or RU486, is a medical, non-surgical oral pill taken to terminate an early pregnancy. The abortion pill is a combination of two drugs, Mifepristone (an antiprogesterone) and Misoprostol (a prostagladin). It is used in the United States up to 11 weeks of gestation.

Dilation & Curettage (D&C)
D&C refers to a surgical procedure intended to evacuate the embryo, products of conception, and uterine contents. It is typically performed during the first trimester up to 12 weeks. Unless there are anticipated complications, this procedure is typically done in a doctorʼs office or a clinic.
Dilation & Evacuation (D&E)
D&E is a surgical procedure done for second trimester terminations. It is usually performed after 14 weeks. Since the pregnancy is more advanced, and the size of the unborn child is bigger, the cervical dilation (opening of the cervix) needs to be done with larger dilators to allow the insertion of surgical forceps to remove the fetal parts. Once the dilation is complete, suction of the amniotic fluid and placenta tissues is done by negative pressure suction. In order to remove the fetus, the unborn child is brought to the lower aspect of the uterus, followed by the disarticulation, or separation, of the limbs using extraction forceps until the entire fetus is removed. Finally sharp curettage is done in order to scrape the uterus.
Sexually transmitted diseases can be spread through vaginal, anal and oral sex. If you or your partner are sexually active, you could be at risk – even if you use a condom.
