The Morning After Pill (RU486/Mifepristone)

RU486 (Mifepristone) and other abortion pills are taken orally to terminate an early pregnancy. This drug is only approved for use in women up to the 49th day after the last menstrual period, or through 7 weeks of pregnancy. The procedure usually requires three office visits:

  • On the first visit, the patient is given the Mifepristone pills, to terminate the pregnancy.
  • At the second office visit, if the abortion has not occurred, she is given a second drug, Misoprostol, that causes cramps to expel the embryo.
  • The last visit is a follow-up ultrasound to determine if the procedure is complete. If the patient is still pregnant, a surgical procedure will be required.

Dilatation and Curettage (D&C)

This surgical procedure is generally used in the first 12 weeks of a pregnancy. This procedure may be done in a doctor’s office or a clinic.The doctor first opens (dilates) the cervix and then empties the uterus with suction. After suctioning, the doctor may scrape the walls of the uterus to make sure the unborn child, placenta, and contents of the uterus have been completely removed.
