Abortion Pill or RU486 also known as a medical abortion is used up to 9 weeks of LMP.
A medical abortion is as an alternative abortion procedure to a surgical abortion procedure that is performed up to 9 weeks from the first day of your last normal menstrual period. It is an early abortion option, which is preformed in the first trimester (63 days) of gestational age with success rates of 92-95%.
Two medicines are used to complete a medical abortion.
Mifepristone (abortion pill) taken in our office
24-48 hours later Misoprostol (Cytotec) taken at home
After 2-5 days you are to return to our center for initial follow-up and sonogram to ensure that the medical abortion has completely ended unplanned pregnancy.
Before your Abortion
