THE ABORTION PILL
Non-surgical abortions, sometimes called "medical abortions," are performed in the first 9 weeks in the first trimester. Non-surgical abortion can be administered in pill form (otherwise known as Mifeprex or RU-486). Mifeprex is approved by the FDA for non-surgical abortion.

Non-surgical abortion will stop your pregnancy from growing and vaginal suppositories will help expel your pregnancy. Since there is always a statistcally small chance of failure with this method, you must be willing to have a surgical abortion if the non-surgical abortion fails. In addition, you must be able to commit to two or more visits to the office and be in good health and:

You Must:
agree to have a surgical abortion if the non-surgical abortion fails
be able to receive phone calls from the office
have immediate, reliable access to transportation in the event of an emergency
agree to return to the office for a check-up afterwards.

What are the advantages of Mifeprex?
What are the side effects of Mifeprex?

How does Mifeprex work?
Mifeprex blocks a hormone needed for your pregnancy to continue. When used together with another medicine called misoprostol, Mifeprex ends your pregnancy.
How effective is Mifeprex?
Mifeprex followed by the vaginal insertions is approximately 98% effective.
What are the advantages of Mifeprex?
Because Mifeprex comes in pill form and is taken by mouth, you can usually avoid surgery. Also, because it works very early in your pregnancy, Mifeprex allows you to take early action to end your pregnancy.
What are the side effects of Mifeprex?
Bleeding and cramping are a normal part of the process. The bleeding can be heavier than a normal period and usually lasts from 9-16 days. In some cases, women may have severe bleeding and then would need to contact the clinic or their doctor immediately. Your provider will instruct you on how to handle any pain, nausea, headache, vomiting, or diarrhea that could also occur.
How safe is Mifeprex?

The FDA, which has tested it for both safety and effectiveness, has approved Mifeprex. In the past decade, almost 700,000 women in Europe have safely used Mifeprex to end their pregnancies. It is now approved for use in more than 23 countries.
