Non-surgical abortions, also referred to as Medical Abortions or the Abortion Pill, are used to end an early pregnancy by administering a series of medications. The series of medication is FDA Approved for the termination of early pregnancy.
At Illinois Abortion Clinics pregnancies under 7 weeks in gestation as confirmed by an ultrasound are eligible for the series of medications referred to as a medical abortion. An ultrasound is used to confirm the actual pregnancy measurement and gestation period.
We do not dispense the Abortion Pill online, at least one office visit with the physician and a follow up is required with the Abortion Pill. There is a small chance that the procedure will not be complete with the medication alone (as confirmed by ultrasound) and in the event of an incomplete abortion, or excessive bleeding a D&C will be need to be completed.
A medical abortion or the Abortion Pill is not the same as emergency contraception, which is often referred to as the morning-after pill or Plan B. Emergency contraception prevents pregnancy and can work for up to five days after unprotected sex; medical abortion terminates an early pregnancy.
How does the Abortion Pill work?
It is a series of medication designed to block the development of pregnancy and further terminate the pregnancy.
How effective is the Abortion Pill?
It is over 90% effective, however there is always a small chance that the procedure will result in an incomplete abortion and a D&C will be required.
What are the side effects of the Abortion Pill?
Bleeding, cramping and passing orange size clots are all a normal part of the process. The bleeding can be heavier than a normal period and usually lasts from 9-16 days. In some cases, women may have severe bleeding and then would need to contact the clinic immediately or to the local emergency room. Your provider will instruct you on how to handle any pain, nausea, headache, vomiting, or diarrhea that could also occur.
