Medication abortion (also called the abortion pill, MifeprexTm) is FDA approved for up to 70 days (10 weeks pregnant) after the start of your last menstrual period.
- The “pill” is actually a protocol that involves taking two drugs, mifepristone and misoprostol, which are taken in two separate doses on different days.
- It is not available through a pharmacy, but is only available by an authorized provider.
- The FDA strongly cautions against the use of mifepristone obtained over the Internet.5
- Because of complications, the FDA keeps close track.5
- The abortion pills are different from emergency contraception, sometimes called the “morning-after pill”.
For women who change their minds after taking just the mifepristone, it may be possible to rescue the pregnancy. Learn more: The Abortion Pill Reversal.
A self-induced abortion (also called a self-managed abortion, or sometimes a self-induced miscarriage) is an abortion performed by the pregnant woman herself, or with the help of other, non-medical assistance. Although the term includes abortions induced outside of a clinical setting with legal, sometimes over-the-counter medication, it also refers to efforts to terminate a pregnancy through alternative, potentially more dangerous methods.6 Abortions have been attempted using herbal medicines, sharp tools, forceful massage, or through other methods. Toxic reactions and even death have been reported.6
We provide a free ultrasound during our pre-abortion screening services. It’s important to confirm your pregnancy before considering an at-home abortion method. A positive pregnancy test (including those taken at home) suggests a high probability that you’re pregnant. However, the result should be confirmed. By getting an ultrasound you can learn more about your pregnancy and find out if you even need an abortion and if so, what type of abortion procedure you would require.
