Free Abortion Pill / No Cost RU486 / Mifeprex/ Mifepristone/ Early Option Pill / French Pill
RU486 is known by many names as noted above. It gives women the opportunity to have a termination performed as early as one week prior to missing a period up to 10 weeks from the last menstrual period. Recent studies indicate that the medical abortion procedure can be used to terminate pregnancy up to 14 weeks from the last period on an out-patient basis; and from 15 to 24 weeks or further in an abortion clinic or physician's office. These second trimester and late term abortions can be performed in 24 hours or less in 99% of cases with less than a 1% chance of surgical instruments having to be used. RU486 is not only used to stop the growth of pregnancy tissue, but it prevents growth of uterine fibroids, endometriosis, cystic disease of breast tissue and other diseases, and to prevent pregnancy after unprotected intercourse. It is FDA approved in the United States for medical abortions only.
The most common medical abortion or abortion pill procedure is performed with the combination of RU486 (Mifeprex, Mifepristone, Mifegyne) and Misoprostol (Cytotec). The first medication taken to carry out the abortion pill process most commonly is RU486. It is an anti-progesterone medication and works by binding to the progesterone receptors on the uterus that promote loss of the blood vessel supply to the pregnancy and causes the lining of the uterus to shed. Progesterone is necessary to maintain uterine quiescence (prevents uterine contractions). Once progesterone is unable to bind to the uterus, the intrauterine pressure increases and begins to contract. There are local changes to the cervix that allow it to open and become soft. This softening and dilation (opening) is called “cervical priming”. This in itself can lead to a 2 to 3% chance of vaginal bleeding and a 1% chance of miscarriage prior to taking the second medication. RU486 alone has been shown to cause abortions in 45 to 80% of pregnancies up to 10 weeks gestation as an after effect; however, the failure rate was thought to be too high to be used alone for the general population of patients.
Cytotec (Misoprostol) is a prostaglandin that is FDA approved to prevent gastric ulcers in patients who take chronic anti-inflammatory medications to reduce the incidence of gastric ulcers. Misoprostol (Cytotec) is the second medication generally given 48 to 72 hours after the RU486 tablet to initiate uterine contractions that will end the pregnancy. The combination of RU486 and Misoprostol are used in our offices to perform the one day abortion process in patients 3 to 24 weeks. This process is started and completed with minimal to no complications. Misoprostol works by binding to prostaglandin receptors on the uterus which causes the uterus to contract and expel the fetus and gestational tissue.
The combination of RU486 and Misoprostol is nearly 100% effective for patients who are less than 6 weeks from their last menstrual period.
The combination of RU486 and Misoprostol is highly safe, effective and efficient for terminating pregnancy. It is a viable alternative for women who do not wish to undergo a surgical abortion procedure. There is a small percentage of complications that may occur, but the benefits far outweigh the risks. It has been used in Europe since the early 80's. The contraindications to the use of RU486 are adrenal failure, prolonged use of corticosteriods, or allergy to this medication. Please look under general contraindications to having the medical abortion procedure performed.
Methotrexate is an antimetabolite that specifically inhibits folic acid which is necessary for the body to produce DNA and RNA. It is used to treat multiple cancers such as breast, head and neck, and tumors of the female genital tract. Due to its anti-inflammatory action, itis used to treat patients who have psoriasis, rheumatoid arthritis and ulcerative colitis. In the late 80's and early 90's Methotrexate was used to treat ectopic and early uterine pregnancies. Methotrexate destroys the syncytiotrophoblast cells which are part of the fetal placenta. This stops the growth of the fetus. Methotrexate used alone for pregnancies 6 weeks or less has a 100% termination success rate. Pregnancies up to 9 weeks using the combination of Methotrexate and Misoprostol have between a 94 to 98% chance of successful termination. Because Methotrexate inhibits dihydrofolate reductase, it causes severe fetal deformities and when the medical abortion procedure does not work, patients must agree to undergo a surgical procedure.

Side Effects and Risks of Medical Abortion
RU486 Side Effects:
The most common RU486 Side Effects are the following:
Risks and side effects that may require an emergency room or personal physician visit are the following:
1) Heavy bleeding that requires the use of 2 or more pads an hour for two hours. There are a very small percentage of patients who may require a blood transfusion. The bleeding in a small percentage of patients can last from 30 to 60 days, 2) Temperature of 100.4 or greater lasting for more than 24 hours when unable to decrease with Advil or Tylenol. A rare pelvic infection with Clostridium Sordelli may enter the blood stream causing lower abdominal and low back pain, foul vaginal discharge, dizziness, weakness, lightheadedness and eventual loss of consciousness and death. Clostridium Sordelli has been associated with maternal deaths in induced abortions. Maternal Deaths have occurred due to this bacteria after full term vaginal deliveries, full term deliveries with C-sections, and spontaneous vaginal deliveries, 3) Severe lower abdominal and low back pain, 4) Severe nausea and vomiting that lasts for 24 hours or more, 5) retained pregnancy tissue in the uterus that may lead to the patient having to undergo a surgical procedure, and 6) failed abortion that continues to grow, or the pregnancy tissue stops growing. Either way, a surgical procedure may be performed or additional doses of the abortion pill can be given.
Abortion Pill (RU486, Mifepristone, Mifeprex, Mifegyne), Cytotec (Misoprostol) Safe:
The abortion pill process is not without its critics regarding its safety. There have been numerous studies that have shown the complications, side effects and risks associated with the procedure. It is still important to know that the abortion pill process that uses the combination of RU486 and Cytotec is highly efficient, safe and effective in terminating pregnancies except when Methotrexate is used in women who are breastfeeding. There are a few studies that suggest women who use cytotec in the medical abortion process should stop breast feeding for 6 to 24 hours as it may cause the infant to have diarrhea. Safety of the surgical abortion procedure compared to the abortion pill procedure is very similar though the complications differ. The surgical procedure is associated with a higher chance of cervical tears and lacerations, uterine perforations, bladder and bowel injury, retained pregnancy tissue, and anesthesia complications. The medical procedure has a higher incidence of heavy vaginal bleeding and retained pregnancy tissue that may lead to severe infection

Other Abortion Pill Procedure Adverse Effects
Most women who undergo abortions feel immediately relieved afterward. There have been reports of women who have suffered from long term emotional and psychological problems that lead to deep depression and other pathologic mental disorders. Some physicians believe that post-abortion disorder or syndrome should be a defined mental illness disorder. Major Psychological groups do not recognize this disorder. The only women that seem to be at risk of psychotic disorders after an abortion are women who have previous psychological disorders or do not have support of their families.
In years past, there was question of abortion and a higher incidence of breast cancers and cervical weakness that causes preterm births. The studies were extensively re-evaluated and no link was found between abortion and breast cancer. With modern day techniques for performing abortion, there is now less chance of cervical trauma making the possibility of premature births is no longer an issue.
Healing after abortion begins in the recovery room following the surgical removal or with passage of the pregnancy tissue after the abortion pill medical abortion procedure at home. Women will normally bleed for a few days off and on for 4 to 16 days. Blood clots the size of a 50 cent piece may pass. Women in the first trimester of pregnancy are able to go back to work or school the same afternoon or the next day after the procedures are performed. Patients who are less than 6 weeks are able to have intimate contact the following day. Ovulation can occur as early as 6 days after the abortion procedure is performed; however, the average is approximately 20 days. Condom use and long term birth control should be started and used within the week of the abortion procedure. Swimming and bathing are no longer contraindicated after either a surgical or medical procedure.
Post abortion recovery time generally takes place within a few days. A small amount of bleeding and mild lower abdominal pain and uterine contractions generally lasts no more than 2 weeks. Uterine cramps and blood clots may be relieved by performing a uterine massage where the woman lies on the bed and presses from below the navel toward the pubic bone for 30 minutes. To help in the post abortion healing process, a heating pad or hot water bottle placed on the lower abdomen may be beneficial for alleviating the pain and discomfort.

How and Where To Get the Abortion Pill (RU486, Mifepristone, Mifeprex, Cytotec [Misoprostol] and Methotrexate Injection and Methotrexate Oral Tablets) In Order to Undergo the Medical Abortion or Abortion Procedure
A self-induced or unsupervised medical abortion method should never be undertaken. Home abortion kits can be purchased online from several companies. The FDA released a warning online to consumers in 1997 asking that they not purchase any home abortion manuals or miscarriage remedies online because of two primary reasons: 1) the products themselves have not undergone inspection by the FDA and there is no guarantee that the product itself is safe for consumption, and 2) pregnancy termination may at times be associated with significant side effects and complications including death. Infection and severe heavy bleeding are the two most common causes of death when carrying out an abortion. Additionally; the medical abortion procedure has approximately a 1% chance of failure and the pregnancy can continuing to grow. The Misoprostol used to carry out the abortion pill procedure is associated with an increased incidence of fetal abnormalities. It is therefore recommended, if the abortion process fails, the woman undergo a surgical abortion aspiration procedure. It is for these reasons that do it yourself abortions should not be attempted.
Women should seek physicians who are experienced in performing the Medical Abortion or Abortion Pill Procedures, and who are well trained with using the single or combination of medications that are safe and efficient in carrying out the abortion process.
