Abortion Pill / Non-Surgical Abortion

Medical Abortion or Abortion Pill at Femi-Care Surgery Center

The biggest advantage with the medical abortion (Abortion by Pill) is no surgery is required and can be done in the privacy of your own home.

This method can only be used for early pregnancies up to 10 weeks. The effectiveness is approximately 95% and approximately 85% from 7 to 10 weeks.

One medication regimen can be done before the pregnancy is visible by sonogram. With the a different medication regimen, you will need to come to the office and consult with the doctor, have a sonogram and all other necessary labs, etc. performed. The medication taken orally, blocks the action of progesterone, causing the uterine lining to thin and the pregnancy to detach. This will be taken in the office on your first visit.

You will be given a second set of pills to take home with you. You are to take this after 8 hours on that night; we recommend taking the pain medication as recommended by the doctor. Cramping may be moderate to severe which is managed by pain medication recommended by the doctor.

The first medication induces uterine contractions, helps soften the cervix and increases the effectiveness of the second medication to 95-98%.

  • Anesthesia is not required
  • Method is FDA approved for terminating early pregnancies
  • Disadvantages of a medical abortion:
  •     Not being monitored by our medical staff
  •     Sometimes it can take days to complete
  •     Requires at least 2 visits
  •     Post procedure bleeding may last longer than the surgical method

It is very important to weigh your options and decide which method you are more comfortable with. If you are undecided you can always make the appointment and decide once you speak with the physician.
