Abortion Pill: RU486, Medical Abortion

Click HERE for Pregnancy Calculator

The Abortion Pill, also known as the French abortion pill or RU-486, as an alternative to the surgical abortion procedure. The abortion pill method use to be available up to 9 weeks from the first day of your last normal menstrual period.


Two medicines are used to complete the abortion. The first medicine, Mifeprex, is given by mouth and causes the pregnancy to separate from the uterus. The second medicine, Misoprostol, is inserted into the vagina and causes the uterus to contract and expel the pregnancy.

The abortion pill requires three clinic visits on three separate days. On the first visit, you would complete the state-mandated counseling and our physician and counselors will answer any questions you may have about the process.

On the second visit, you would sign your consent papers, have a pelvic exam, meet with the physician, and swallow the Mifeprex pills. You would receive Misoprostol tablets to take home and insert later. You would also receive detailed instructions and pain medications.

With the abortion pill, you could expect cramping, heavy bleeding, and clots. The process can last anywhere from 4 to 12 hours and in some cases it may take up to 48 hours.

At the third visit, 7-10 days, you would need a follow-up ultrasound to make sure that you've passed the pregnancy and are no longer pregnant.

If you have a problem or an emergency during or after this process, you would need to speak with our on-call medical staff 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
