How it Works ?

Step 1 : The doctor determines the stage of pregnancy by doing an ultrasound, and making sure that it is between 5-9 weeks. The first ‘abortion pill’ (Mifepristone) is then taken orally. Mifepristone stops the pregnancy from developing by blocking the pregnancy hormone progesterone.

Step 2: The second ‘abortion pill’ (misoprostol) is taken 36-48 hours after taking mifepristone. The medication causes the uterus to contract and expel the pregnancy. Within hours, most women experience strong period-like cramps and bleeding, that ends the pregnancy.

Step 3: The patient might be required to make a visit Hospital to make sure the medical abortion was successful.

What to Expect ?

You would be required to have a pre-abortion consultation during your first visit to help you decide which kind of abortion is best for you. This would involve an ultrasound scan to ensure that you are in the right stage of pregnancy for an abortion. We would also be discussing your medical history and taking you through the medical abortion process in detail.

You would then be given two sets of pills with detailed directions about where, when and how to take them. The first pill - mifepristone - is taken with water in the clinic. The second abortion pill - misoprostol - can either be taken at the clinic, or at home. We will talk you through available options at your appointment.

Our nurse would be glad to help you out with any questions that you may have.
