abortion pill

According to the Federal Drug Administration (FDA), the Abortion Pill can be used until 10 weeks of your LMP (Last Menstrual Period), however, its effectiveness may decrease as the pregnancy progresses.

Procedure

The FDA approved regimen for Mifeprex (RU-486) is a two-visit process using two different drugs

  • Mifepristone is given orally during the first office visit. Mifepristone blocks progesterone from sustaining the pregnancy.
  • Misoprostol tablets are given orally 48 hours later. The misoprostol will cause contractions to expel the fetus. This does not take place at the medical office and may occur within a few hours or up to two weeks after taking misoprostol.
  • A physical exam is given by the healthcare provider about 7-14 days later to ensure the abortion is complete and that there are no immediate complications.  An incomplete abortion could cause serious illness so be sure to follow up with your healthcare provider within that time period.

FDA Black Box Warning

You should not buy Mifeprex over the Internet because you will bypass important safeguards designed to protect your health (and the health of others). Non-FDA approved drugs carry risks above and beyond expected side effects.
