You will soon start experiencing severe period-like bleeding and blood clots after taking the abortion pill. These clots might grow rather enormous at times. This is typical during the process, however if you have any questions or concerns, you can reach out to our clinic. Contact CARE as soon as you can if you are totally soaked through more than two maxi pads for two hours in a row. This level of blood loss is regarded as significant bleeding and poses a serious risk.

If you choose the abortion pill procedure, you will take the first pill with your doctor right here in the clinic. You take the second round of medications, which we will send home with you after 24 to 36 hours, to start the miscarriage. After taking these medications, you should spend at least 12 hours at home.

If you discover you are pregnant early on, medical abortion may be an option as opposed to surgical abortion. We offer medication abortion up to 10 weeks at our clinic locations. The abortion pill is two forms of medication that work together. For surgical abortion, we provide care from up to 24 weeks in your pregnancy. Medical abortion, also known as “the abortion pill,” is used to terminate and expel the pregnancy and is considered less invasive. Mifeprex (mifepristone) and Cytotec (misoprostol) are the two medications used for early medical abortion (misoprostol).

In a surgical abortion, the first day you will have laminaria (FDA-approved dilators) inserted into the womb opening to absorb bodily fluid and cause dilation. The procedure will be performed on the second day. Depending on the medical history, some procedures can take 3-4 days. You can conceive again immediately after your pregnancy ends. Begin using birth control immediately to avoid an unwanted or unplanned pregnancy. The doctor may also advise patients to begin using birth control to help regulate hormones and return bleeding to normal at a faster rate.

When it comes to family planning, you should consult your doctor, nurse, or health center to determine which type of abortion is best for you. Medication abortions can take up to 24 hours to complete, whereas in-clinic abortions take 5-10 minutes.

Mifeprex (mifepristone) and Cytotec (misoprostol) are the names of the two drugs used for early medical abortion .

Patients can always have their support person(s) with them, with the exception of an initial brief consultation period.

After leaving the clinic, you may resume your normal activities. There are no restrictions after your abortion if you have a medical abortion. If you have a surgical procedure, you must refrain from using anything in your vagina for one week (no tampons, douching, or sex).

If you are having a multi-day abortion, we strongly advise you to bring a support person with you. If this is not possible, we can assist you in navigating your options. If you are given IV sedation, you will need to be driven home by a licensed driver. If you are unable to bring a licensed driver, please call ahead to make arrangements.

Once pregnancy has been determined, you must be at less than 10 weeks gestation, to use the abortion pill. Beyond that point the effectiveness of the non-surgical procedure drops significantly. There are times that despite taking the pill, not all of the pregnancy tissue leaves the uterus. If this happens, you must have a surgical procedure. 

There are no clear indicators of an incomplete abortion. The only way to find out is to take a birth control test or have a transvaginal ultrasound performed so that a doctor can assess your status after the procedure. Breast tenderness, nausea, and vomiting are some symptoms that may indicate that you require additional testing.

Bleeding typically lasts 2-3 weeks and can be “on and off” for up to 6 weeks. Bleeding may be heavier than usual, or you may not bleed at all. You may also pass some clots. When you come in for your appointment, we will give you a “How Much Am I Bleeding” graphic to take home and educate you on what type of bleeding is normal and what is cause for concern.

We work with many abortion funders, including the National Abortion Federation and the National Network of Abortion Funds, which may help in paying for part of your procedure. Our team member that makes your appointment will provide you with the contact information for abortion funds that you need.
