What Is the Abortion Pill?

The abortion pill, also known as medication abortion, involves two different drugs: Mifepristone and Misoprostol. The first drug, Mifepristone works to prevent the embryo from implanting or growing within your uterus while Misoprostol causes contractions and works to expel the pregnancy. There are major risks and side effects to this abortion procedure.

When Should I Take a Pregnancy Test?

The best time to take a pregnancy test is at least one week after your missed period. This will give you the most accurate results, as your body has the correct amount of time to produce detectable levels of HCG (a pregnancy hormone).

Why Do I Need An Ultrasound?

An ultrasound confirms your pregnancy so you can move forward with your decision. An ultrasound confirms three important things about your pregnancy:

  1. The viability of your pregnancy
  2. The gestational age
  3. The location of your pregnancy
