How is the “Abortion Pill” provided?
There are two steps and at least two visits to WHS. On the first day, you will receive counseling to understand how this option works and to answer your questions. You will have an ultrasound, physical exam, and pregnancy test to determine that you are seven weeks pregnant or less. You will be given Mifeprex to start the abortion process. Fifty percent of women will begin spotting after taking Mifeprex. Two days later, you will take misoprostol as a vaginal suppository. If the bleeding has not already begun, you will start bleeding. The pregnancy will expel from four to twenty-four hours after taking misoprostol. You return to the clinic for a check up after the expulsion of the pregnancy within the next few days.
