Medical abortion offers a non-surgical option to end pregnancy with pills in the first trimester (13 weeks).
Nearly half of abortions in the United States are from medical abortions.
Our qualified healthcare providers will discuss the best method for you based on shared decision-making.
In the first trimester a medical abortion remains 95-98% effective especially through the initial eleven weeks of pregnancy.
Medical abortion pills include mifepristone and misoprostol.
Mifepristone (Mifeprex) affects the hormone progesterone while misoprostol (Cytotec) affects the muscles of the uterus.
These pills end a pregnancy which is different from emergency contraception (morning-after pill) that prevents a pregnancy.
Medical abortions begin with counseling and the first medication which is mifepristone.
The next day you will take the second medication which is misoprostol.
You can discuss alternate medications and options with our healthcare providers during your video-chat with them.
Millions of individuals in the United States and abroad have used mifepristone and misoprostol or similar medications for abortions.
Scientific research studies have shown these medical abortions to be safe and effective with no long-term risks.
Short-term side effects include cramps, bleeding, nausea, vomiting, fever, and chills.
Medical abortions do not affect future pregnancies unless there are uncommon complications.
