Abortion Pills

What is the abortion pill?

“Abortion pill is in two medicines misoprostol and mifepriston. Mifepriston medicine ends the pregnancy, it works by blocking the hormone progesterone. Without progesterone, the lining of the uterus breaks down and the pregnancy cannot continue.

The second medicine, makes the womb contract, causing cramping, bleeding and the loss of the pregnancy similar to a miscarriage.

This method can be used up to 24 weeks of pregnancy at our clinic. What to expect depends on whether the pregnancy is less than or more than 10 weeks’ gestation.

The Abortion pill up to 10 weeks

For pregnancies under 10 weeks’ gestation you may take the medical termination at the same time, or you may leave the clinic after taking the first set of pill and return 1-3 days later to take the second set of pills. Your healthcare professional will discuss your particular options with you – there are different potential risks involved with each option. Taking both medicines at the same time is convenient for many women but causes more side effects and is less effective than when the medicines are taken at least one day apart. It is important that you understand the differences between your options – so please read the table below and talk to your healthcare professional about what is best for you.
