Medical/Non-Surgical Abortions

abortion-procedures

RU486 (Mifepristone) and other abortion pills like it are taken orally to terminate an early pregnancy. This drug is only approved for use in women up to the 70th day after the last menstrual period, or through 10 weeks of pregnancy.

The procedure usually requires three office visits. On the first visit, the patient is given pills, Mifepristone, to cause the death of the embryo. At the second office visit, if the abortion has not occurred, she is given a second drug, Misoprostol,  that causes cramps to expel the embryo. The last visit is a follow-up ultrasound to determine if the procedure is complete. If the patient is still pregnant, a surgical procedure will be required.
