When you are facing an unplanned pregnancy, it is completely normal to panic. Maybe you are not ready to be a mother, or you are just not sure what options are available to you. If you are considering the abortion pill, there are a few things you should know first and some other options you can consider.
What Is The Abortion Pill?
The abortion pill uses two medications to end a pregnancy: mifepristone and misoprostol. These medications are taken as prescribed to reduce progesterone which will stop the pregnancy from continuing. However, this medication does come with several side effects, including:
- Heavy bleeding
- Risk of infection
- Joint pain
- Mood shifts
How Effective Is The Abortion Pill?
Effectiveness depends on how far along you are in your pregnancy. Typically there is a 88-99% out of 100% chance of working, but again this depends on how many weeks into the pregnancy you are. You should also confirm your pregnancy before deciding on an option like the abortion pill. Our clinic offers no-cost ultrasounds and pregnancy confirmation, so contact us today. We also provide resources and information on all of your pregnancy options.
What Are My Other Options?
The abortion pill is not your only option. There are many options available, so you can pick a pregnancy plan that works the best for you and your needs.
One option you might consider is adoption, which is a wonderful way to help others become parents if they, for whatever reason, cannot conceive on their own. Adoption has many options and plans you can work with to find the most comfortable, and we are more than happy to provide resources and support for the process.
Becoming a parent can feel overwhelming at first, but you can successfully become a parent and thrive with the proper care and support. Just know you are not alone on this journey. Our team would love to meet with you and discuss options, care, and support.
What If I Took The Abortion Pill But Changed My Mind?
If you took the abortion pill but have decided not to continue with the abortion, you can reverse the process if you act fast. Contact our team today to get information on how you can get an abortion pill reversal.
