What is the chance of the Medical Abortion Procedure (RU 486) still working if it fails the first time?
The abortion pill procedure has a 94 to 99 percent success rate. No one knows why the procedure is not 100 percent effective. When patients return and either have an incomplete abortion or a failed abortion, they are offered more Misoprostol tablets to take as our experience has shown that there is a high percentage of success with the second dosage. If the patient decides that she does not want to take additional Misoprostol tablets, we can perform a surgical abortion.
