Also known as the abortion pill, non-surgical abortion is a safe, non-invasive option if you are not more than 70 days from your last normal menstrual period. It is administered in pill form.
Mifeprex is a pill that blocks a hormone that is needed for your pregnancy to continue using two medications. First, mifepristone weakens the attachment of the pregnancy to the uterus. Misoprostol then makes the uterus cramp and bleed, expelling the pregnancy. The Medication Guide you will receive at your first visit explains how it works in more detail.
