Your questions answered…

Is the abortion pill safe?

According to the WHO (World Health Organization), before deciding to self-manage a medication abortion, there are many factors to consider. The pregnancy needs to be confirmed and the gestational age measured. The WHO also says that medication abortion is not appropriate for everyone, specifically those who have had an ectopic pregnancy, pelvic inflammatory disease, chronic adrenal failure, hemorrhagic disorders, bleeding disorders, porphyries, those who currently have an IUD, or those who are experiencing pelvic pain. If a person has any of these health issues, they should reach out to a medical professional before taking the medicines. A person should also understand how medication abortion works and how to correctly use the medicines involved.

Do I need to go to a doctor before taking the abortion pill?

Yes and no. Visiting a doctor or health center to acquire the abortion pill is still considered a safer option. It is important to know how far along you are in your pregnancy, understand your medical history, and thoroughly research all of your options. It is also valuable to be connected with a provider, so that if you choose to take the abortion pill, your provider can verify that the abortion was complete and you do not have a need for a D&C.

You can find abortion pills online. They are not currently regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which poses risks as you consider a medical procedure that has short- and long-term effects.  While it seems like a quick and easy option, take a minute to get all of the information.  You deserve it to have ALL of the information you need before making your pregnancy choice.

When can I take the abortion pill?

First, the abortion pill is different than Plan B or the morning after pill. You can take Plan B within 72 hours of having unprotected sex. It works to prevent an embryo from implanting in the uterus.

The abortion pill is something different altogether; it cuts off the blood and nutrient supply to the baby. It is actually two different medications: the first is called Mifepristone. The next pill, taken 24-48 hours later, is called Misoprostol. Misoprostol (also known as Cytotec) causes the uterus to contract and expel the contents of the pregnancy.

The abortion pill can be given up to 10 weeks into the pregnancy, after which point the only abortion option available to you is an in-clinic or surgical abortion.

How can I get the abortion pill?

A physician can prescribe you the abortion pill at an office or clinic.  You can also find various websites that allow you to purchase the pill online. Abortion pills acquired online are not currently regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, which poses risks as you consider a medical procedure that has short- and long-term effects.  While it seems like a quick and easy option, take a minute to get all of the information.  You deserve it.
