Medication Abortion/ Chemical Abortion/ Abortion Pill/ Mifeprex + Misoprostol (Information taken from manufacturer’s website.)

  • FDA approved this option up to 70 days (10 weeks) since your last menstrual period began.
  • Day 1:
    • Mifeprex (1 tablet) will be given to you in the clinic, office or hospital.
    • Taking this medication will block the action of progesterone, preventing continued healthy uterine-wall development or successful implantation of the embryo.
  • Day 2:
    • Take 4 Misoprostol tablets (prescription only) 24 to 48 hours after taking Mifeprex.
    • Taking this medication will cause uterine contractions to expel the embryo/fetus.
    • When the pregnancy is passed from the uterus, you will have bleeding and cramping that will likely be heavier than your usual period.
    • About 2 to 7 out of 100 women taking Mifeprex will need a surgical procedure because the pregnancy did not completely pass from the uterus or to stop bleeding.
