The Abortion Pill (RU 486) is fast becoming the most sought after abortion method. The series of two pills can now be prescribed up to 10 weeks into the pregnancy and can be administered by health care professionals – not just doctors.
Get your facts. You owe it to yourself to have the facts about this chemical procedure.
The first pill you take will cut off the blood flow to the embryo and the second will induce labor. Side effects associated with the second pill can include severe cramping, bleeding, nausea and vomiting. It is possible that, even after taking both pills, a surgical abortion may be needed to complete the abortion – that will be at an additional costs.
The most important piece of information you need before proceeding with the abortion pill is how far along you are in the pregnancy. The closer you are to 10 weeks, the higher the chances that the abortion pill may not be enough.
