Understanding the Abortion Pill: what you need to know.
The Abortion Pill is a synthetic steroid called Mifeprex RU486 or Mifepristone. It comes in generic tablet form.
Mifepristone is used for the medical termination of a pregnancy and can be taken up to 10 weeks from the first day of your last menstrual period (LMP) of pregnancy.
A typical Abortion Pill dose comes with 2 steps:
The first step is a does of Mifepristone followed 24-48 hours later by a dose of Misoprostol.
When you become pregnant, progesterone is responsible for building up your uterine lining and preparing your body to carry a viable pregnancy.
Mifepristone blocks the natural progression of progesterone in your body, causing the lining of your uterus to shed.
The second dose of Misoprostol causes your uterus to contract, expelling the contents of your uterus, thereby ending the pregnancy.
The Abortion Pill is a very common way to administer abortion in America, but there are a number of side effects and dangers to be aware of.
Side effects may include:

- Heavy bleeding w/ large clots
- Stomach pain
- Mild fever or chills
Before taking the Abortion Pill, you should be fully aware of the risks by learning more here.
The Abortion Pill can be especially dangerous if the pregnancy is Ectopic (a pregnancy in which the fertilized eggs implants outside the walls of the uterus).
These types of pregnancies are always high-risk and are not resolved with the Abortion Pill. Left unresolved, these pregnancies can result in serious illness or death to the mother.
Ectopic pregnancies are typically found with an ultrasound, but in the case of a medical abortion, no ultrasound is required and the ectopic pregnancy may go unnoticed.
You can learn more about Ectopic pregnancies here.
