Why do women choose the abortion pill?
The Abortion Pill (RU486) is a more natural abortion option with a 96-98% effectiveness rate. It’s causing a miscarriage by taking medications. Some women prefer to undergo a miscarriage in the privacy of their home, which makes the Abortion Pill a great choice. You can decide who will be with you during the process.
If you’re less than 10 weeks of pregnancy, counting from the first day of your last menstrual period, you can take the Abortion Pill. This will be confirmed by an ultrasound examination.
What’s the Process?
STEP 1– In Our Office
Texas law requires a mandatory, in-person consultation appointment with a physician and ultrasound at least 24 hours before taking the first pill. At your first visit, you will be given detailed written and verbal instructions on what to expect during this process and how to take the medications.
**There is an exception if you live more than 100 miles from a Texas licensed abortion facility. If that applies to you, we are able to provide this information over the phone at least 24 hrs in advance. Please discuss with our staff when you call so we can be sure you qualify and have all the necessary information.
STEP 2 – In Our Office
When you return for the second visit, you’ll take the first pill (Mifepristone) in our office. Afterwards, you will feel normal and can continue daily activities. Occasionally there is nausea and rarely some bleeding.
STEP 3 – At Home
24-48 hours later, you will take the second set of pills (Misoprostol) at home. Within hours, most women experience some cramping and bleeding. It is usually heavier than a normal period and may last for several hours. It’s kind of like having a really heavy, crampy period, and the process is very similar to an early miscarriage. After that, your bleeding slows down, similar to a heavy period.
STEP 4 - Follow Up
Within 2 weeks you will need a follow-up to confirm that the pregnancy has ended.
