Your provider at Dr. Emily Women's Health Center determines if you’re a good candidate for the abortion pill during your visit to the office. The abortion pill is only recommended up to 9.4 weeks gestation. During your evaluation, your specialist first confirms pregnancy with a pregnancy test and then conducts a sonogram to estimate weeks of pregnancy.
Dr. Emily Women's Health Center also offers a free early pregnancy test that can detect pregnancy within 10 days of conception.
If you’re not considered a good candidate for the abortion pill, the team at Dr. Emily Women's Health Center can talk to you about surgical abortion.
The abortion pill terminates pregnancy with the use of two different medications that induce a miscarriage. The first medication blocks your body from producing progesterone, which is a hormone needed during the early stages of pregnancy. The second medication, which you can take 24 to 48 hours after the first medication, induces uterine bleeding.
You will experience cramping and bleeding after you take both medications. If you don’t experience any bleeding within 24 hours of taking the second medication, then you need to call Dr. Emily Women's Health Center right away. The staff is available to you around-the-clock to answer any questions and provide counseling as needed.
After you’ve completed your medication and miscarried, the team at Dr. Emily Women's Health Center has you come back to the office to confirm termination of your pregnancy with a second sonogram.
Dr. Emily Women's Health Center is a full-service OB/GYN practice and can talk to you about your contraception options following your abortion to prevent future unwanted pregnancies.
