What is the abortion pill?

The abortion pill is actually several pills and two different drugs taken in two separate doses. Other names for the abortion pill are medical, medication, or chemical abortion.​ 

How does it work? When is it taken?

It is usually taken between 4-6 weeks, but it is FDA-approved up to 70 days after a woman’s last menstrual period. 

The first dose blocks progesterone which is a pregnancy hormone that helps the embryo develop. The second pill causes the uterus to expel the embryo, inducing early labor. This generally happens while you are at home.

How do I know if I’m eligible for the abortion pill?

The abortion pill is not an option for people with certain medical conditions or if the pregnancy occurs outside of the uterus, such as an ectopic pregnancy. If you are miscarrying, you should not take the abortion pill.

Because menstrual cycles can be unpredictable, an ultrasound should be performed so you can find out exactly how far along you are. It is dangerous to take the abortion pill if you are later than 10 weeks pregnant.

How much does the abortion pill cost?

The cost of an abortion can vary based on several factors, including how far along you are. Medication abortion can cost anywhere between $450-$900. 

Can I order the abortion pill online?

Ordering the abortion pill online or from a non-credible source can be unsafe for you. Below is the FDA Warning.
