How does it work?

The abortion pill (also known as Mifeprex, TM mifepristone, RU-486) is usually taken up to 10 weeks gestation. Abortion pills are usually administered at an abortion clinic.

Most clinics have patients take the first pill at the clinic, which causes the embryo’s death. Two or three days later, the woman will take the second pill, which causes cramping to expel the baby. On average, between days 7-14, patients are supposed to follow up at the abortion clinic to check if the abortion was completed.

Side Effects

You deserve to know all the information before putting anything into your body.

Sides effects include abdominal pain, severe cramping, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, headaches, dizziness, and fever & chills. It’s important that a woman isn’t by herself when taking the second pill, if symptoms become severe.


There are some risks involved with taking the abortion pill. We educate, so you can make an informed decision for your body.

Some of the risks include the following:

  • Seeing embryonic parts expelled
  • Some pregnancies fail to abort
  • In pregnancies that continue, misoprostol may cause birth defects
  • 1% of women need a D&C to stop hemorrhaging
  • Undiagnosed ectopic pregnancy
  • Possible life-threatening infection
  • Are Online Abortion Pills Safe?

The abortion pills that are sold online often bypass important FDA safeguards designed to protect women’s health. This means that the pills could be ineffective or even a dangerous substance. Some websites also claim to give instructions on how women can induce their own abortions. Attempting a DIY abortion can be very dangerous for women.
