First off, medical abortion terminates a pregnancy through prescribed medication commonly mifepristone and misoprostol. The first drug is normally taken at your doctor’s office. This pill, which often doesn’t have any side effects, aims to detach the embryo from the uterine wall. Hours later, or depending on your doctor’s instructions, you take the second pill, normally in the comfort of your own home, to cause the uterus to expel the embryo. Common side effects of this drug are nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramps, and bleeding which can last for a couple of weeks. In cases when it is not successful, a surgical abortion is required to complete the process.
Abortion in any form has associated health risks. You should never proceed to have a surgical or non-surgical abortion without knowing all the facts about how the procedure will affect your health.
