Same Day Abortion Pill For 3 to 4.5 Weeks Gestation

The Best Early Abortion Option Performed on the Same Day Using Only One Medication No need to wait 24 to 96 hours.

Did you recently have one or more episodes of unprotected intercourse within the past month and think it may be too late to take Emergency Contraception or if your period is not late or it is less than a week late and you may think that you are pregnant? If the answer is yes, and you are thinking of purchasing the abortion pill (RU486, Mifeprex, and Mifepristone) which can be prohibitively expensive, you’ll be relieved to know there is a less expensive, safe alternative. RU486 is an anti-progestin that causes sloughing and necrosis of the blood vessels in the uterus leading to increase pressure, and uterine contractions. Misoprostol is a prostaglandin that prevents ulcers from occurring in the stomach when patients take non-steroidal anti-inflammatories. Misoprostol alone has been shown to work by itself in terminating pregnancy. It is less expensive but highly effective for women who are less than 4 weeks gestation. You take two sets of the Misoprostol tablets on your first visit and there is almost 100% termination rate for patients who are 4.5 weeks or less pregnant. If found to be more than 4.5 weeks pregnant the medical abortion can still be carried out with a combination of Methotrexate and Misoprostol, or RU486 and Misoprostol. If 4.5 weeks or less and only Misoprostol is used, the cost of the procedure is $350.00.

Several people have called or e-mailed me regarding getting ready to go to another office to have the abortion performed and told me that they were going to have to pay for and use both the abortion pill and Misoprostol in order to have their abortion performed. They were not told nor were they aware if they were less than 4.5 weeks the abortion procedure can and is carried out with over 99% success in completing the abortion process.

Hundreds of patients have now undergone the procedure and have noted how effective and safe the procedure is. There is minimal bleeding and pain associated with the early medical abortion procedure due to how early the patients are in pregnancy.

The medications are easy to take and the instructions are easy to follow. Usually within 2 to 4 hours patients experience mild crams and bleeding with most saying the worst cramps were no longer than bad menstrual cramps.

Pros: You can safely abort up to a 4.5 week pregnancy in the privacy of your home with or without your significant partner or friend and without the expense of taking the abortion pill (RU 486, Mifeprex, or Mifepristone) which is more expensive. After the sonogram confirms patients are 4.5 weeks gestation, two sets of Misoprostol are given to the patient with the first set taken immediately and the second set is taken in 24 hours after the first set. There is no need to have to wait normally 48 to 72 hours to have to worry about starting another set of pills. One just returns to the office within a week to have a repeat sonogram to assure that all of the pregnancy tissue has passed. There is also a savings of $125.00 for being 4.5 weeks or less pregnant.

Cons: Misoprostol is a very safe drug and so is the abortion pill (RU486, Mifeprex, and Mifepristone). It is generally safer to take one medication than two medications. The single dose regimen (Misoprostol alone) works as effective as the combination (RU 486 and Misoprostol) for patients who are 4.5 weeks or less pregnant shown by several studies in the literature. Paying $350.00 for the abortion rather $475.00 is a tremendous savings.

Conclusion: We are happy to offer only in our Orlando offices the Misoprostol only Medical Abortions where the pills can be taken on the first day of the office visit and will cause the abortion to occur generally 4 to 8 hours after starting the medication. . There is no 48 to 72 hour waiting period between taking the first and second set of medications. The tablets are easy to swallow and cramps and passing of blood general starts within 3 to 4 hours after taking the first set of Misoprostol pills. Side effects include cramps, bleeding, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, low grade temperature, diarrhea, retained tissue, and pelvic infection, incomplete abortion, continued pregnancy (rare), and heavy bleeding requiring blood transfusion (rare). There is over 99% success rate with this method if 4.5 weeks or less.
