Pregnancy Termination with the Abortion Pill

By Heather MacGibbon Subscribe to RSS | December 12th 2011 | Views:

If you’re considering abortion, you have two options: an in-office procedure or at-home abortion through the use of medication. According to Marcus Byers of NYC abortion provider ParkMed, medication abortion (more commonly known as the “abortion pill”) has become a popular option for early pregnancy termination because it allows for greater privacy and gives patients more control over the abortion process.

At ParkMed in NYC, the abortion pill is one of several options available to women considering pregnancy termination. Here, Byers explains what to expect from pregnancy termination with the abortion pill.

Your First Visit

Pregnancy termination using the abortion pill starts with some tests to verify your pregnancy and your overall health. These tests will include a urine test, blood test and sonogram. You’ll also be given the opportunity to ask questions and learn what to expect over the course of the abortion process. In order to use the abortion pill, you usually need to be between five and eight weeks pregnant.

While you’re at the office, you’ll be given a pill (called Mifeprestone), which must be taken before you go home. This medication stops the development of the pregnancy by blocking the hormone progesterone. You’ll also be given a second medication, Misoprostol, which you’ll take at home sometime within the next 48 hours.

The Next 48 Hours

When you’re ready, sometime between 24 and 48 hours after your visit to the clinic, you’ll take the second medication. This medication allows the pregnancy tissue to pass from your body. Because this process involves some cramping and bleeding, you’ll be encouraged to take pain medication and to stay close to a bathroom. You should expect to experience period-like bleeding for a few days, or even weeks, after this process is complete.

Your Follow-up Visit

You’ll be asked to return to the clinic about two or three weeks later for some tests to verify that the abortion process is complete. This visit will include a urine test, sonogram and exam by the doctor. You may still be spotting at this time but it is important to come in for this visit anyway as remaining tissue or blood in the uterus can cause problems later.
