abortion Pill, Aspiration Procedure, Early abortion Methods, surgical abortion

A: Dear Erica, There are two early abortion methods that are safe and noninvasive: the abortion Pill, and the Aspiration abortion Procedure.  I recommend both of these methods over a surgical abortion.  The Aspiration abortion procedure is different from a surgical abortion because 1) there is no scraping; 2) there is no electric suction; 3) there is minimal discomfort so there is no need to be put to sleep; 4) there is immediate recovery; 5) it can me done in a private examination room, not an operaing room; 6) it is nonsurgical so you can eat and drink before your visit; and 7) you can resume your normal activities when you leave...

abortion pills, mifepristone, misoprostol, medical abortion

A: Dear Misty, Thank you for your question regarding the abortion pills, mifepristone and misoprostol. It is an excellent question.  Many women are confused about the best protocol to take when getting a medical abortion. The abortion Pill (mifepristone) is only available through a doctor"s office.  Misoprostol is a commonly prescribed ulcer medication available through pharmacies.  In some countries misoprostol is available outside of pharmacies.   There is no evidence that the abortion pills interfere with future pregnancies.  The medication is in and out of your system within days. You can even safely get pregnant...

What Are the Side Effects of the abortion Pill?

A: In most cases, the side effects of the abortion pill are relatively minor. For example, a woman who has taken the abortion pill may experience nausea, vomiting, cramping, headaches, and a feeling of weakness or fatigue. Bleeding is a normal effect of the abortion pill as well, as the medication works to expel the embryo from the woman’s uterus. In some cases, however, a woman may experience excessive bleeding or vomiting after taking the pill. Some women may experience allergic reactions to the abortion pill as well. The abortion pill is medication used to end an early pregnancy. It works to stimulate dilation of the cervix and the expulsion of the developing...


What Is an abortion Pill?

A: An abortion pill, also known as a medical abortion, is a method of inducing miscarriage and terminating a pregnancy. Generally, though called an abortion pill, the medication is comprised of two pills with different effects. This form of abortion is typically used in early pregnancy, since increased complications are more likely farther along the gestation process. The concept of a substance that induces abortion is an ancient one, dating back to the earliest records of societies. In some early societies, the production of a child out of wedlock resulted in an instant death sentence for a woman, even in cases of rape or as a result of sexual...


bleeding after abortion pills

A: Dear Mary, It is common and normal to have bleeding that stops for weeks, and then starts again after taking the abortion pills.  Blood flow that is like a period is normal.  Blood that is red like a period, or brown, like discharge is normal. Sometimes the blood flow can be much heavier, and have clots.  This is also normal. The bleeding can happen daily, or it can stop and start.   Irregular bleeding from the abortion pills can go on for weeks to months.  The average length of irregular bleeding is 6 weeks.  This kind of bleeding is the main reason women are unhappy with the abortion pills.  However,...

RU 486, abortion pill

A: Dear Amanda, RU 486 is the same thing as the abortion Pill.  RU 486 was the original name for Mifepristone, when the abortion pill was developed in France.  Mifepristone, was approved for use in the United States in 2000, and it has come to be known as the abortion pill.   The abortion Pill is an excellent choice for ending early pregnancy, under 9 weeks.  You take one mifepristone tablet (RU 486) in the doctor"s office.  You then take a second set of pills (misoprostol) 24-72 hours later.  These pills cause the uterus to contract and induce a miscarriage.  The advantage of the

abortion pill 2 months ago - vaginal bleeding

A: Dear B, Unfortunately the bleeding you are describing is fairly common and normal with the abortion Pill.  I have seen many women have sudden heavy bleeding, sometimes with clots or tissue, days, weeks, or even months after taking the abortion Pill.  It indicates that there was some tissue that did not come out.  The tissue can still be attached to the uterine wall, and can cause bleeding. The blood can often sit in the uterus before coming out, and then cause a gush of blood.  It is common and normal for the heavy bleeding to occur after sex or exercise, because this stimulates the uterus to contract and expel the tissue and blood.  This bleeding should stop on its own. If it continues like this for more than a...

abortion pill?

A: Hi, neena, I did a little research for you. There is a parental notification statute in North Carolina. Before you could have an abortion, you either have to have your parents" consent, or go through a court proceeding. I"ll give you the wording of the statute, and the URL, at the end of this message. The abortion pill causes the introduction of powerful hormones into your body. The procedure takes place over several days, and most of that time, you will be home (or wherever you live). If you have a complication, your mom will probably find out anyway. You should also be aware that the second medication they give is given off label. What that means is that the pharmaceutical company that manufactures it doesn"t want it used for

Post-abortion Pill - Did it Work?

A: Dear Ben, This is a very unusual story.  I have been offering the abortion pill for over a decade and have never had a patient who did not bleed at all - especially at 8 weeks.  The other odd result is a negative urine test.  Normally, the test typically does not turn negative until 2-4 weeks after a medical abortion at 8 weeks.  Even at 6 weeks, it usually takes at least 2 weeks to become negative.   There are a few possible scenarios. 1) the pill worked, but the pregnancy tissue is "stuck" in the cervix, which can cause bloating. 2) the pill hasn"t worked at all and the pregnancy test is a false negative 3) she was never pregnant originally or it was not in the uterus or she was much earlier than 8 weeks (did...

the abortion pill

A: Hi, kayleigh, Your brother has NO RIGHT to expect his girlfriend to use the abortion pill. It can KILL her. The manufacturer specifically says it is NOT to be used by pregnant women. Your brother has a duty to protect his girlfriend. There are several ways this can kill. One way is by causing toxic shock syndrome. That kills within hours, usually before emergency room personnel can even diagnose the problem. It can cause the uterus to have such violent contractions that it will rupture. It can cause a woman to bleed to death. Depending on how heavy the bleeding is, that could happen within hours as well. Sometimes the only way to save her life is emergency hysterectomy, which means she will never have another child. There is a very narrow window during which...
