But is it really? Be informed before you make a decision.
What exactly is the Abortion Pill? It is a combination of two different medications, taken two days apart. These pills cause a medical abortion (another name for the abortion pill) when taken within 10 weeks from the first day of your last menstrual period.
Blocks the hormone progesterone from getting to the embryo and stopping the heartbeat – causing disconnection from the uterine wall and the heartbeat stops.
Taken at home 48 hours later, causing uterine cramping to expel the pregnancy. Often heavy cramping and bleeding occur and could last for up to 1-2 weeks.
DO NOT TAKE THE ABORTION PILL IF . . .
It has been more than 70 days (10 weeks gestation) since the first day of her last menstrual period
You have an ectopic pregnancy (a pregnancy outside of the uterus)
You are experiencing bleeding problems or taking anticoagulant (blood-thinning) drug products
Do not take the abortion pill without accurate medical information about your pregnancy. It’s risky and dangerous. You deserve all the information you need to make a safe decision for your reproductive health.
