Preparing For An Abortion – Getting Mentally and Physically Ready.
The decision to have an abortion is very difficult. It is highly emotional, controversial, and everyone has an opinion. It should not be based on someone else’s thoughts or beliefs.
The choice to have an abortion involves moral, ethical, social, moral, religious financial and age considerations. This was the opinion of the US Supreme Court in another opinion that was decided on the same day as Roe Vs Wade in 1973 (Doe vs Bolton) that made abortion legal.
The ways to prepare mentally and physically regarding an abortion procedure are to understand the 1) benefits and risks, 2) the types of abortion procedures available and 3) you choosing the provider and service you wish to have. This blog is meant to help you with the information that is required.
The biggest emotion that most women feel after the termination is complete is the feeling of relaxation. Yes; there certainly may be moments of feeling sad and mildly depressed. The anxiety and fear that something horribly is going to go wrong immediately dissipates after the abortion is complete.
Having everything planned ahead of time with what is needed during and after the abortion pill or surgical operation is very important.
Having your favorite foods, drinks and snacks available is a prerequisite. A list of movies you may want to watch or books and magazines you have preference in reading will help the time pass expeditiously.
It is important to have a heating pad or warm water bottle available to place on your lower abdomen to help with pain and discomfort. Having a place to take a nice warm shower may also help with distraction of the lower abdominal and back pain.
The majority of women pass the fetal tissue in 4 to 6 hours once taking the second pill which is usually given at home. Understanding that the significant discomfort and heavy bleeding that may occur is limited, allows most women the psychological understanding that they can get through the series of actions to achieve the resulto.
If that is not the case, then the medical provider is only a phone call away and is available to see his patients immediately.
Abortions are legal in the United States. They are highly safe and effective. Abortion laws have not reduced the incidence of maternal deaths. Restrictive laws are only meant to prevent women’s access to abortion.
Advanced abortion technology methods have been responsible for the very low maternal abortion complication and death rate. The incidence of complications are less than 1%. The maternal death rate is 0.0063%
Penicillin, Viagra and pulling of wisdom teeth are associated with more complications and side effects including death compared to abortions performed from 3 to 12 weeks. The chance of dying from a vaginal delivery or a C-section is 10 times greater than undergoing a first trimester abortion procedure.
If you find yourself with an unwanted pregnancy, you are not alone. 1 in 3 women in the US have an abortion before they are 45 years old. Women should have no guilt or shame when they find themselves having conceived and not ready for motherhood.
Motherhood is a 24 hour and 7 day a week job. It is having to care for another individual or individuals besides yourself.
Most people who are against abortion do not believe in any form or type of birth control. Any medication that they believe prevents fertilization or implantation of a blastocyst into the intrauterine cavity is a abortion agent.
There is no evidence that Emergency Contraception (Morning After Pills), Birth Control Pill, Progesterone or progesterone pellets çause an abortion. There is no scientific proof that they change the environment of the Uterus preventing implantation of the blastocyst into the wall of the uterus.
Yet there are Pharmacist and hospitals who will not distribute birth control due to their moral and ethical consciousness.
What is immoral and unethical is to not give women birth control so they will not be in a situation of conceiving at the wrong time.
Approximately 650,000 women a year undergo a abortion procedure in the U.S. yearly. This is significantly reduced from the 1.2 million procedures that were performed 10 years ago. The reduction in the number of abortions is partially due to women being educated and having access to birth control.
The Emergency Contraceptive Pill (Levonorgestrel 1.5 mg-Plan B) is available over the counter at Pharmacies such as CVS, Walgreens and Walmart. Having immediate availability of the Morning After Pill can reduce the incidence of pregnancy by 95%. They work up to 5 days after the unprotected event.
For each hour that passes after the unprotected event, the Emergency Contraceptive Pill is not as effective. It is very important for women who are active sexually and are of reproductive age have the Morning After Pill in their purse or in their medicine cabinet. There or no contraindications to using Emergency Contraception.
The anti-abortion crowd does not want women to have access to contraception or abortion. These are the same people that find Viagra, Cialis or Levitra indicated for erectile dysfunction are ok to take. Yet they cause more deaths and complications than having a surgical or medical abortion.
Abortion is one of the most frequent medical procedures performed in the United States. Due to the stigma of it, women feel isolated and afraid to discuss having an unwanted pregnancy with anyone.
This is exactly why this blog was written. It is to help put one’s fear and mind at ease by presenting the benefits and risks of the abortion procedure. You can then decide whether or not undergoing the abortion pill or surgical abortion is right for you.
There are various ways to prepare physically and emotionally for your abortion.
1. Enlighten yourself about your termination of pregnancy options
According to the CDC and Guttmacher Institute, over 50% of women choose “the abortion pill” method to terminate their pregnancy if 8 weeks or less pregnant.
The abortion pill procedure is also known as medical, chemical, non-surgical or pill abortion. This option is commonly available to women who are 10 weeks or less pregnant.
Medical Abortion Limit
There is no limit or cut off on the number of weeks pregnant that the medical abortion can be performed. It is common to use the Abortion Pill method to terminate pregnancies in the first trimester, second trimester, late term and third trimester pregnancies.
The Abortion pill method can be performed on women who are 12 weeks, 14 weeks, 16 weeks, 18 weeks 22 weeks, 24 weeks and 30 weeks pregnant. Maternal and fetal indications are indicated to abort pregnancies that are 21.5 weeks or further.
Medical Abortion Definition
The medical abortion method involves using two different tablets. The medications are Mifepristone (RU 486, Mifeprex, French Pill) and Misoprostol (Cytotec). Mifepristone blocks the hormone Progesterone. It is responsible for maintaining the pregnancy. The lining of the uterus thins and the pregnancy detaches from the wall. Misoprostol causes the uterus to contract and expels the fetus.
The Abortion Pill procedure is 93 to 99% effective in terminating pregnancies. The earlier in pregnancy the procedure is performed, the higher the success rate. There are also less complications that occur the earlier in pregnancy the abortion happens.
Studies show that the abortion pill procedure continues to grow in popularity in comparison to a surgical abortion for the following reasons:
Higher level of privacy
The abortion procedure is generally completed at her home where she is supported by individual(s) that she chooses
Avoids surgery in over 99% of cases
Avoids IV sedation or general anesthesia
Feels more natural. When describe it as having a heavy menstrual bleed
There are side effects and challenges that may occur with the abortion pill method:
May require multiple visits to abortion clinic
Continuous pregnancy or fetal death but no bleeding or cramping (1% incidence)
Incomplete Abortion- fetus passed but poignancy tissue remains in uterus. May need addition Misoprostol tablets or Surgery (0.3 to 1%)
Heavy bleeding that requires blood transfusion (0.02 to 0.03%)
How Early Can the Medical Abortion Be Performed?
The Abortion Pill Medical Abortion can be performed as soon as the missed period and a positive pregnancy test. That is 4 weeks from the Woman’s Last Menstrual period or 2 weeks since becoming pregnant.
The first pill Mifepristone is generally taken in the Abortion Clinic. A instruction sheet is given prior to leaving the Clinic that gives instructions on when, what route, frequency and the number of Misoprostol tablets to take. There are no standard guidelines on when the Misoprostol tablets are taken.
Ultra Early Pregnancy
Studies have been performed in China with over 2000 participants. The incidence of ectopic pregnancy in the normal population is 1 to 2%. In this particular population where abortions were performed 35 days or less from their last menses, there was no incidence of an ectopic pregnancy.
This has brought up a very interesting discussion in the medical literature regarding Mifepristone being able to be utilized to treat ectopic pregnancies at a ultra early gestation.
The mechanism of action of how Mifepristone blocks progesterone and forces the die off of the blood vessels (decidual necrosis) supplying the pregnancy, could theoretically treat ectopic pregnancies.
As pregnancies become further advanced in weeks, the decidual necrosis process is not capable in stopping the growth of the ectopic pregnancy.
Methotrexate is a medication used to treat different cancers and arthritis. It was also noted to cause miscarriages in early pregnancy.
Methotrexate has been used to treat ectopic pregnancies since the early 90’s in women who meet certain criteria.
Methotrexate was and still is utilized for non surgical medical abortions up to the 7th week of pregnancy. It stops the growth of trophoblastic cells. These special cells are responsible for fetal growth in pregnancy and production of HCG which maintains the corpus luteum. The corpus luteum is the main place that progesterone is produced the first 7 weeks of pregnancy.
With pregnancies that are 35 days or less, visualization of a sac on sonogram is nearly impossible. A study in China was done that showed performing the abortion procedure in patients who were 35 days or less had a 100% abortion success rate utilizing Mifepristone and Misoprostol.
They only used 50 mg Mifepristone and 200 ug of Misoprostol to carryout the process. It was associated with minimal to no side effects and nearly 100% of women had their menses return at its normal time the following month.
This medical investigation and others provide evidence that medical abortions performed early in gestation without documentation of a intrauterine pregnancy is highly successful and there are minimal to no complications.
What Is The Mifepristone and Misoprostol Medical Abortion Dosage?
The Mifepristone dosage for first trimester abortions is 200 mg. Studies show that 1 mg/kg should be the adequate dosage amount to block the progesterone receptors on the uterus to initiate the abortion mechanism.
There are studies using Mifepristone 50 mg that are slightly less effective in terminating pregnancies than the regular 200 mg tablet.
Four tablets (400 ug) of Misoprostol are generally given sublingually (underneath tongue). It can be given buccally (between cheek and gum). The third common way that Misoprostol is given is vaginally.
The sublingual dosing is associated with women having a higher probability of shivering and diarrhea.
This regimen works in 94 to 99% of cases and may be repeated in 3 to 14 days if initial dosage fails.
There are studies that show that taking an addition 400 ug Misoprostol 3 hours after the initial dose reduces the chance of a continuous pregnancy.m
There is a higher incidence of severe abdominal pain and heavier bleeding when the Mifepristone and Misoprostol are taken the first day together vs waiting to take Misoprostol 24 to 48 hours later
Inserting Misoprostol vaginally for second trimester, third trimester and late term abortions has a higher completion rate than the buccal or sublingual route of delivery.
The start to completion time is faster and there is less chance of retained placenta or other pregnancy tissue when utilizing the vaginal route of delivery with Misoprostol.
Despite the higher abortion success rate utilizing Misoprostol vaginally, women prefer placing the tablets sublingually or buccally.
D&C vs Medical Abortion
A D&C (Surgical Abortion, Vacuum Aspiration, Vacuum Suction) has been the gold stand for many years for termination of pregnancies. The vacuum aspirator was invented in Russia and began to utilized in the US in the late 1950’s to early 60’s. Prior to that, instrumental manual curettage was used for termination of pregnancies. This caused many complications and side effects. Common complications included the following:
cervical tears and lacerations
heavy vaginal bleeding
serious pelvic infections
uterine scarring and
This lead to women having chronic pelvic pain, severe pelvic infections, hysterectomies, bladder and bowel complications. Many women were never able to conceive again. There was a very high incidence of maternal mortality.
Utilization of the vacuum suction machine and utilization of sterile disposable curettes reduced the incidence of complications, side effects and maternal deaths significantly.
The majority of States did not allow legal abortions before 1973. There were many back alley methods that were used. Coathangers, glass, metal objects, sharp wooden objects and caustic chemicals were all utilized to terminate unwanted pregnancies. This lead to a very high incidence of maternal death.
The Roe V Wade US Supreme court decision made abortion legal throughout the Nation. Abortion should always be legal and safe. Modern day surgical and Abortion Pill Methods certainly reduce the risks of complications or side effects. The incidence of maternal death is .0063%
The advantages of the surgical abortion procedure vs medical abortion include the following:
Less chance of a continuous pregnancy
Minimal risk of incomplete abortion
Minimal risk of heavy vaginal bleeding
No follow up required once procedure is performed unless experience a complication
Abortion process is completed in 3 to 10 minutes generally
Pain and discomfort normally resolve in 15 to 30 mins
A small amount of bleeding and cramping off and on possibly for 10 days to 2 weeks
2. Is abortion pill safer than surgery?
Medical abortions are safe when performed under the care of a medical professional. The abortion pill procedure carries fewer risks and complications than childbirth. The death rate of women during the medical abortion procedure is 0.0063%.
Medical abortion in comparison to the surgical abortion is associated with the following:
Longer period of being in pain: One knows the Misoprostol is starting to work when the woman begins to have pain and bleeding that begins 15 to 30 minutes after taking the Misoprostol. Over 50% of time the fetus passes in 3 to 5 hours after giving Misoprostol.After the fetal tissue passes, the pain and and discomfort significantly decrease.
Medical Abortion Pain Scale on visual pain scale of 1 to 10 is a 5.6. Over 50% of women do not need any pain medications. 40% of women use Ibuprofen or Motrin to control their pair. 8% of women require a narcotic pain medication like codeine
95% of medical abortions are complete by day 7 whereas surgical abortions are completed immediately
Blood clots and bleeding lasts normally from 5 days to 2 weeks. More than 8% of women bleed for more than 30 days and 1% bleed up to 60 days.
A surgical D&C is required more frequently for retained products of conception, continuous pregnancy or heavy bleed verses a surgical abortion where the chance of those complications are much less. (1% medical continuous pregnancy vs 1 in 2000 continuous pregnancy surgical)
There is a higher chance of the medical abortion not working in comparison to the surgical abortion. (0.5 to 1% medical vs 1 in 400 to 1000 surgical)
Medical abortion associated with a higher chance of having blood transfusion (.03%) vs Surgical abortion (.001%)
Thus one can conclude that the complications are higher with the abortion pill but still are rare.
It is very rare for a fulminate infection to occur with the medical abortion procedure. Patients present with severe headache, listlessness, unresponsive, severe lower abdominal pain and low back pain, mild to heavy bleeding, and develop a foul smelling vaginal discharge. Patients must be immediately admitted to the hospital and IV hydration and antibiotics started.
This infection with Clostridium Sordellii may lead to multi-organ failure and maternal death in 12 to 24 hours. This infection is not just isolated to the use of Mifepristone and Misoprostol. It occurs in patients who have term vaginal deliveries, C-Sections, spontaneous miscarriages and other Gynecological surgeries.
Most women have a safe medication abortion. All medical procedures have some risks. Similarly the pill procedure has risks that include the following:
undetected ectopic pregnancy
Medical abortion did not work
Little to no bleeding
Bleeding lasts 1 to 3 days instead of normal 5 to 16 days
Must consider ectopic pregnancy when no bleeding occurs or develop sudden onset of sharp right or left lower pelvic pain
Develop fever 100.4 for 24 hours or longer
Lower abdominal and pelvic pain, continuous vaginal bleeding
3. You must be aware of any restricted abortion statutes in your state that may complicate your experience make the termination process illegal.
Various States around the country have a 24 to 72 hour waiting period before the abortion may be performed after meeting with the Physician and signing consent forms. This delay increases the expense of the procedure significantly as it may require women who have traveled a long way have to stay in a hotel, pay for food and hire a babysitter to stay overnight with their children. This creates an undue burden on thousands of women seeking an abortion.
Several States have voted to change their Constitution giving the fetus equal rights and define it as a human being. By doing this will make abortion automatically illegal once Roe vs Wade is overturned. The only way to stop this immoral onslaught against women is at the voting polls. They must be voted out of office.
A sonogram is mandatory in some States. Ohio has a law that was approved that will make all abortions illegal after visualization of the pumping fetal heart.
It is good for you to research in advance regarding the rules of the medical abortion or surgical abortion that you wish to undergo.
4. Medical Abortion: What To Expect
Most women have a good experience with the medical abortion procedure. Women are concerned mostly about pain and successful completion of the medical abortion process. The is different for everyone. No one can tell you exactly how it will feel or or that it will be a 100% success for you. There is no way to predict who in the population of patients that undergo the abortion pill procedure will be the 0.5 to 1% of patients where the abortion pill process does not work.
The most important thing that determines the woman’s experience is for the counselor and the Physician to explain the medical abortion process in detail on what can happen during the procedure.
Misoprostol tablets held between the cheek and gum or underneath the tongue are bitter. They must be held in place for 30 mins and then residual swallowed. They may cause abrasions inside the mouth and a sore throat.
The lower abdominal cramps, pain and bleeding may begin 15 to 30 mins after taking Misoprostol. Most women only have little to light bleeding initially and within a short time frame the bleeding increases significantly.
Medical Abortion Pain Predictors:
It is not easy to predict patients who will develop severe pain during the Medical Abortion Process. The following may give indications:
Early Maternal Age
High Anxiety and Depression
No Family or Companion support
The further the number of in pregnancy
Mifepristone and Misoprostol taken at the same time or same day rather than waiting 24 to 48 hours to take the second pill
Pain medications are prescribed by Physicians to patients who develop moderate to severe pain during the procedure
Other points to discuss with patients that help allow them to have a good experience
The woman must have proper transportation and generally live within 2 hours of the medical facility in case immediate evaluation required
A discharge instruction sheet is given to all women before being discharged from initial visit
The possibility to undergo a surgical D&C after the medical abortion must be accepted by the patient to be performed in case the Medical Abortion procedure as at time things can go wrong. The chance of major complications that require hospitalization, blood transfusion or surgery is rare.
Women must agree to return for a 2 or 3 week check up is important. A pregnancy test, sonogram and pelvic exam may be done at that visit to assure the procedure is complete and no medical problems
What Actually Comes Out with Medical Abortions?
It is never recommended that women actually take a look at the tissue that comes out of the vagina. Women who look at the pregnancy tissue say they are not alarmed or disturbed. A lot of women just want to look out of curiosity. Other’s want to confirm the fetal tissue has passed.
Even if fetal tissue is visualized, does not mean the abortion procedure is complete. Most women know the exact moment the tissue passes as there is a sudden increase in pain and discomfort along with heavier bleeding. With passing of the tissue, the moderate to severe abdominal pain diminishes.
Women are able to see blood and fetal tissue at 7 to 8 weeks in their sanitary napkins or toilets. At 8 weeks the fetus measures a little over a half inch and at 9 weeks it measures approximately an inch. If the tissue passes in the toilet women are told to flush. If the tissue is in a sanitary pad, then it should be disposed away properly.
No fetal tissue can be visualized in patients who are 6 weeks or less pregnant.
Medical Abortions: Twin Pregnancies, Breast Feeding, Uterine Fibroids, Multiple Abortions
Performing a medical abortion on women who are carrying twins or other multiple gestations can occur. There is generally a higher chance of heavy vaginal bleeding and pain associated with the procedure due to the larger amount of fetal tissue.
Breastfeeding – There is no medical evidence that Mifepristone is harmful to an infant. It is recommended not to breastfeed for 5 to 24 hours after ingestion. Studies show that Misoprostol passes through to the mother’s milk. It has been associated with causing bouts of diarrhea in some infants. It is recommended not to breastfeed for 24 hours after taking Misoprostol.
Uterine Fibroids- Using the medical abortion for a fibroid uterus has increased in popularity. There is less chance of complications including vaginal bleeding and infection
Multiple Abortions- There are many women where the 2, 3, 4 or more medical abortions have been performed. There is no limitations on the number of medical abortions a woman has
Is Taking Time Off From Work After Abortion Medication Necessary?
Women who have a ultra early pregnancy (pregnancy less than 35 days) or pregnancies 6 weeks or less are able to go to work the same day after taking the Misoprostol pill. Studies in China show that the medical abortion can be performed the day before a missed period
Lower doses of Mifepristone and Misoprostol are used when undergoing very early procedures. There are less complications and side effects when utilized in this manner. The bleeding is no heavier than their normal menses. All women who have been exposed to an unprotected event should try to undergo a ultra early abortion procedure.
For women who are 7 weeks or further, the timing of taking the Misoprostol tablet should be flexible. It should be taken on a day when you do not have to go to work or school. The majority of women should be able to return to work the following day.
5. Discuss your pregnancy with only a few people that you trust. It may be that you may be able to talk to anyone regarding this matter.
As with any other major medical decision, this information is entirely your business, and and your decision. Not everyone has the same opinion or will support your judgment to have an abortion.
Women have been harmed and murdered over their decision to terminate their pregnancy after their companion discovered that she had done so. Everyone has a strong opinion regarding abortion being right or wrong. There are no neutral opinions on this issue.
It may be best to terminate the pregnancy and not tell anyone. There are many Abortion Clinic facilities that have compassionate staff who are highly qualified and able to support you through your endeavor.
6. Consider talking to a mental health counselor before and/or after your abortion.
In some cases, people feel indifferent or upset after the procedure. Most women are relieved after completion of the procedure.
Guilt, shame, and post-abortion depression occur more frequently in women who have a history of psychological ailments or do not have family support. Signs of depression may be ot eating well, taking showers, brushing teeth, sad, despondent, are signs of depression. If you are suffering from negative emotions and having feelings that they are interfering with your daily routine, then you should consider consulting with a healthcare professional. They provide complete help and therapy if required.
7. Do ultrasound to confirm the pregnancy is not ectopic (gestation implanted outside of uterus).
It is common for most Physicians not to start the medical abortion procedure until the pregnancy can be visualized on sonogram to be in the intrauterine cavity.
There are several countries where abortions are illegal and a medical pill menstrual extraction is performed. A pelvic exam and last menstrual period history is done. No pregnancy test or ultrasound are documented. There is a very high success rate of terminating pregnancies using this method.
Ectopic pregnancies seemingly occur less in women who are undergoing a medical abortion utilizing RU 486 and Misoprostol. The incidence of ectopic pregnancy in the general population is 1 to 2%. As noted later in this blog, there are studies are now showing that early ectopic pregnancies (3 to 5 weeks) may be treated with Ru 486.
8. It is necessary to discuss your medical history with your doctor so that he can suggest you the better option according to your health needs or other complications.
No doubt, having a medical decision is an easy decision, it is a tough one. It is better or if possible, talk to with partner, family and friends regarding this so that they can provide you moral and emotional support. Keep in mind that no doctor is obligatory to achieve an elective abortion and that in certain states there are certain legal necessities and waiting periods you must follow before having an elective abortion. If you’re having an abortion procedure for a miscarriage, there are no special legal requirements or waiting periods required.

These are indications to go back to medical facility to be further evaluated. A sonogram will show whether or not there is a continued pregnancy.
If abortion is confirmed not have happened, it is recommended that you do not continue the pregnancy. In some cases, the Misoprostol tablets may cause facial and fetal malformation.
The Misoprostol tablets cause uterine contractions which in turn reduces flow of blood and deprives the fetus of oxygen. These defects occur between the 8th and 11th week of pregnancy.
