Considering The Abortion Pill?
Are you considering the abortion pill or a medical abortion as a result of an unexpected pregnancy? A medical abortion is a type of abortion that is brought about by taking two different medication, or abortion pills, that will terminate a pregnancy. If you have an established pregnancy, this abortion process will end the pregnancy over the course of a few days. The first pill is usually administered at an abortion clinic or an abortion center like Planned Parenthood. The second pill is taken at home over the course of the following days. Bleeding and discharge will occur at home generally within 24 – 48 hours after taking the first pill. The drugs used for a medical abortion are not the same as the morning-after pill or plan b. The alternative to the abortion pill is surgical abortion.

An abortion doctor or abortion staff member will want to confirm that everything was expelled from your uterus. If everything does not pass from your uterus, an infection may occur. If this happens, the abortion clinic might ask you to consent to a surgical abortion if the abortion pill process is incomplete. It is also important to know potential complications or symptoms that need immediate attention. Fevers, excessive discharge and throwing up are just some of the signs that you may need immediate help or medical attention. Call us today to find out more and be informed.
