Where Can I Get the Abortion Pill?

Where To Get Abortion Pill?

The abortion pill can only be received from a private Physician who has experience in performing abortions, an Abortion Clinic or a Hospital only in the U.S. from a doctor. One may be able to have the abortion pill procedure performed at a reduced rate or at times for free through private donors or non-profit organizations who support the right for women to terminate their pregnancy.

The abortion pill can be received at many Abortion Clinics. If one is called that does not perform medical abortions, most facilities will be glad to give a referral. Abortion Pill Clinics have the medical personnel and expertise to provide a safe abortion in a non-judgmental environment.

When looking for a place to get the abortion pill, one must be careful olin contacting a disguised abortion pill clinic which are actually anti-abortion pregnancy centers. They will encourage one to visit their facility, perform a sonogram and encourage one to keep their pregnancy and give one pamphlets full of information that talk against abortion and how deadly abortion procedures are. In reality, abortion is a very common procedure with the chance of dying being less than 0.0001%. This makes death or serious complications extremely rare.

Following the written instructions on when to take the medications and when to call the medical office and return as instructed are very important in preventing any kind of complication.

Buying abortion pills online is discouraged by the FDA. The reason for this is that they cannot guarantee what the individual is actually getting. This includes the right kind of medication and the right dosage. Medical supervision is very important when undergoing the abortion pill procedure.

What is the Abortion Pill?

RU 486 (Mifeprex, Mifegyne, Mifegest, Mifepristone) is the first Food and Drug Administration (FDA) – approved for abortion in the U.S. in September of 2000. It had been used in Europe for this indication for over 10 years in Europe and parts of Asia prior to being approved in the U.S. Mifeprex is 94-99% effective for safely ending pregnancy. The earlier the weeks in gestation the procedure is performed, the higher is the success of the procedure.

Up To How Many Weeks Can The Abortion Pill Be Performed?

The abortion procedure is normally performed from 21 to 70 days (3 to 10 weeks). Medical studies done in Europe, Asia, Africa and South America show the Abortion pill procedure can be formed in the second trimester, third trimester and late term abortions. It is common for women who have intrauterine deaths from 16 to 40 weeks can be terminated using the abortion pill procedure in a highly effective, efficient and safe manner. In essence, the Abortion Pill Procedure can be performed at any week of gestation as long as there are the appropriate maternal and fetal indications.

After taking RU 486 in a Private Physicians medical office, hospital or Abortion Pill Clinic, the patient is able to immediately take the second pill (Misoprostol) or within a few hours or days after leaving the medical facility.

Contraindication Of the Abortion Pill

Administration of Mifepristone and Misoprostol for the termination of pregnancy is contraindicated in patients under the following medical issues:

  • Confirmed or suspected ectopic pregnancy or undiagnosed adnexal mass.
  • Chronic adrenal failure
  • Concurrent long-term corticosteroid therapy
  • History of allergy to mifepristone, misoprostol, or other prostaglandins (allergic reactions including anaphylaxis, rash, hives and itching have been reported)
  • Hemorrhagic disorders or concurrent anticoagulant therapy (warfarin, heparin)
  • Inherited Porphyrias
  • Use of Mifepristone and Misoprostol for termination of intrauterine pregnancy is contraindicated in patients with an intrauterine device (“IUD”) in place (the IUD might interfere with pregnancy termination). If the IUD is removed, Mifepristone may be used.

Abortion Pill Uterine Bleeding

Uterine bleeding occurs in over 98 to 99% of patients during a medical abortion. When bleeding does not occur, one must be concerned of an ectopic pregnancy. When pregnancies are very early, it is possible for the sac to resorb and there not be any bleeding that occurs until the patients menstrual cycle which generally occurs 4 to 6 weeks after the patient takes the second pill (Misoprostol).

Prolonged heavy bleeding (soaking through two thick full-size sanitary pads per hour for two hours in a row) may be a sign of incomplete abortion or other medical complications. The patient must immediately be evaluated as the control of the bleeding must be addressed and fluids must be given. A blood transfusion is required in 0.003 patients who undergo the abortion pill procedure. An emergency Dilation and Curettage may needed to be performed to empty the uterus. Patients must understand that they should call and seek immediate medical attention if they are bleeding more than 2 pads an hour for more than two hours in a row.

Vaginal bleeding during a normal Abortion Pill procedure may last from a week to 16 days. Women report experiencing moderate to heavy bleeding that may start 4 hours after taking the Misoprostol tablet. The heaviest bleeding and cramps occur just prior to passage of the pregnancy tissue and then subsides right after. Up to 8% of patients may experience bleeding for 30 days or more. Approximately 1% of patients can have vaginal bleeding up to 60 days. In general, the duration of bleeding and spotting increased as the duration of the pregnancy increased.

A decrease in the red blood cell count may occur in women who bleed heavy. Excessive uterine bleeding may require treatment with medications that contract the uterus (misoprostol, ergonovine), vasoconstrictor drugs such as vasopressin, Dilation and Curettage, IV fluids to maintain the blood pressure and blood transfusion if required. Because heavy bleeding requiring surgical uterine evacuation occurs in about 1% of patients, special care should be given to patients with blood disorders.

Abortion Pill Infection

As with other types of abortion procedures, cases of serious bacterial infection, including very rare cases of fatal septic shock have been reported with the use of the Abortion Pill procedure. The incidence of this severe infection is no greater than patients who undergo the surgical abortion procedure. Medical providers evaluating a patient who is undergoing a medical abortion should always be alert for the possibility of this rare event. A temperature of 100.4°F or higher, severe abdominal pain, or pelvic tenderness in the days after a medical abortion may be an indication of infection.

A high index of suspicion is needed to rule out sepsis if a patient reports abdominal pain, discomfort, not feeling well, dizziness, tiredness fatigue, weakness, nausea, vomiting and or diarrhea for greater than 24 hours after taking misoprostol. Very rarely, deaths have been reported in patients who presented without fever, with or without abdominal pain, but with an elevated white count and significant left shift, fast heartbeat, hemoconcentration, and general malaise. A keen awareness of severe sepsis must be suspected under these circumstances and addressed in an aggressive and expeditious manner.

In summary; the Abortion Pill procedure is highly safe and effective. There are complications that can occur but they are very rare. Patients are counseled and given instructions when to call a 24 hour hour number if they experience any problems or have questions. It is recommended that the Abortion Pill Procedure not be performed if patients are 2 hours or further away from a medical facility.
