- Stomach pain
- Mild fever or chills

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. This is extremely dangerous because the ectopic pregnancy may go undetected.
