Abortion Pill

Available for pregnancies up to 11 weeks from the start of the last menstrual period.

What Is The Abortion Pill?

The Abortion Pill (Mifeprex, RU486) also referred to as a Medication Abortion is available for pregnancies up to 11 weeks from the start of the last menstrual period.

With the medication abortion method (often referred to as the abortion pill), a pill (Mifeprex) is given to stop further growth of the pregnancy and a second medicine (Misoprostol) is given later to cause the pregnancy to be expelled. Except in rare cases, no surgical procedure is needed. If a surgical procedure becomes necessary, there will be no additional charge.

The advantage of a medical abortion is that you can avoid having a surgical procedure, and you may go through the process in the comfort of your own home. Many women prefer taking the abortion pill, because they will not have to bring a driver with them. This allows them to complete the abortion process without having to involve a friend or family member.

The disadvantage of the abortion pill is that it is a slower process that occurs over a few days. Although medication abortion is a highly effective technique, it does have a higher failure rate than surgical abortion.

In terms of safety, there is little to no difference between a surgical abortion and the medical abortion pill.

After your medical abortion, a follow-up visit is very important. You must come in for a post-procedure visit 2 to 3 weeks after the abortion. This is the only way we can be certain that your procedure was successful and that you are no longer pregnant. There is no charge for this visit.

If you are uncertain about your plans for your pregnancy we will counsel you about all options. If you choose, we will refer you for adoption services or prenatal care.

State of Arizona Consent

The State of Arizona requires that women having an abortion must have a consultation with the doctor at least 24 hours prior to the procedure. The state requires us to give you certain pieces of information at that consultation. This information can only be given to you in person by one of our doctors. This means that you will need to make two visits to our office, one to receive the state-required information, and once for your abortion procedure. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please understand that this process is required by state law.

After an ultrasound in our office and after the required waiting period, you will return to the office and will be given a medication called Mifepristone. This medication blocks the hormone progesterone. Without progesterone, the lining of the uterus breaks down, stopping the pregnancy. You will be given another medication called Misoprostol which you will take 24-48 hours later. The Misoprostol causes the uterus to contract and expel the pregnancy in a way similar to a miscarriage. You must then return to our office in 2 weeks to confirm that the pregnancy has ended.
