What is the Abortion Pill

The Abortion Pill is a combination of two medications that are taken in our center and in the privacy of your own home. Some women report the medication abortion as being “private” and “more like a miscarriage”.

  • You will take the first pill in our center. It blocks progesterone, a hormone needed to continue the pregnancy.
  • 24-48 hours after taking the first pill in our center, you will take the second set of pills at home.
  • They gently soften and open the cervix so that the discontinued pregnancy can pass through.
  • Most women will completely expel the uterine contents within 6 hours after taking the set of pills at home.
  • You will experience vaginal bleeding similar to a heavy menstrual period and intense cramps.
  • Most women could continue to bleed lightly up to their next period.


The medication abortion (Abortion Pill) is 95-98% effective in completely ending a pregnancy. Effectiveness can depend on the treatment regimen and length of pregnancy. Most uses of the Abortion Pill are successful. An incomplete abortion can safely be treated with additional medication or a surgical abortion available here at our center.

One week later at your third visit to our center, you will be evaluated to determine the completeness of the abortion with a repeat ultrasound. This appointment is included in the price you pay the day you take the first dose of medication and is a required visit.

Contraception will be discussed and prescribed.

Be aware of Crisis Pregnancy Centers (CPCs) and steer clear of them.
