Commonly known as “abortion by pill” medication (or non-surgical abortion) involves taking a combination of medications called Mifeprex and misoprostol. This option is available to clients who are in the first trimester of their pregnancy, up to 11 weeks.
This procedure is available to patients in the first trimester of their pregnancy up to 11 weeks. You will take a pill called Mifeprex under doctor supervision at the clinic. Mifeprex works by blocking progesterone, a naturally occurring hormone necessary for pregnancy to continue.
6 to 48 hours later, at home, the patient will take another medication, misoprostol, a prostaglandin that causes uterine contractions and the pregnancy will be expelled. You will experience cramping and bleeding through this time.
Do not eat or drink anything after midnight before the day of your procedure.
You will undergo an ultrasound exam to confirm the length of pregnancy.
We will perform routine blood tests before the procedure.
We strongly believe in every person’s right to choose the outcome of their pregnancy and support them in whatever decision they make. If you are undecided, we provide resources and counseling to support you through this time. We will not perform an abortion on a patient who has not made a decision of their own free will or who is not ready to make a decision. If a pregnant person is firm in their decision, then the counselor reviews informed consent, answers questions about the procedure, explores birth control options, if needed, and reviews after care instructions.
A follow-up visit will be required for some patients.
Many women feel strong menstrual-type cramping for about 4 to 24 hours after administration of the misoprostol. If so, we will give you a prescription to help relieve this pain. You will receive specific aftercare instructions at the end of your appointment. You can also read them here. In case of an emergency, please contact us at 404-728-7900 or 1-800-877-6013.
