Abortion Pill Q&A

What is the abortion pill?

The abortion pill is an early option to terminate an unwanted pregnancy. The pill is a nonsurgical termination option for ending a pregnancy within the first 10 weeks.

The pill contains mifepristone, which blocks the production of the progesterone hormone. This process prevents the pregnancy from advancing. You receive the initial pill in the office and must take additional pills at home according to the phsyician's staff direction.

If you’re further along, the pill may not be right for you. The staff at Rose Women’s Medical Center can recommend additional options, such as surgical termination services.

How long does it take the abortion pill to work?

The abortion process can take up to 48 hours after you take the appropriate doses. During this time, the staff at Rose Women’s Medical Center is available to you 24/7 to answer any questions or concerns you have.

Within a week of treatment, you return to the office for a follow-up appointment to undergo an ultrasound and other diagnostic testing to ensure the abortion process is complete.

What if the abortion pill isn’t successful?

In the event the abortion pill doesn’t effectively terminate a pregnancy, your Rose Women’s Medical Center staff can refer you for additional services, including a surgical abortion, at another facility.

The medical staff continues to follow up on your care and may request an additional checkup following a surgery.

What can I expect after using the abortion pill?

During the abortion process, you may experience bleeding and cramping similar to a menstrual period. It’s important that you rest as much as possible during the first 48 hours after taking the pill. Your Rose Women’s Medical Center staff can determine if additional rest is necessary based on your health history and current needs.

You should also avoid certain substances during the abortion process, such as alcohol and certain dietary supplements, which can interfere with the success of the abortion pill. If you take prescription medications, such as blood thinners, be sure to provide the staff with medication type and dosage schedule before taking the abortion pill.

What if I am under 18 years of age?

For minors under 18 years of age who are wanting pregnancy termination, the state of Illinois requires abortion providers to notify a parent, step-parent, or grandparent living in the household, or a legal guardian over the age of 22 at least 48 hours prior to your appointment. This applies to patients under the age of 18 who are coming from other states as well.

We can notify the adult family member by phone 48 hours prior to your appointment, or the adult family member can accompany you to your appointment. In both cases, we have a letter that must be signed by both the patient and the adult family member to verify how the adult family member is related to the patient and that the family member is at least 22 years of age. This letter will be kept in the patient’s medical record.

If you cannot or do not wish to notify an adult family member you will need to go to court and get permission from a judge through the Illinois judicial bypass system.

What is included:

  • Initial Appointment and diagnostic ultrasound: During this visit, we will use ultrasound to determine if your pregnancy is within a time frame that the medical abortion pill will be effective. We will also explain the process and answer any questions you may have, as well as send you with information regarding your visit and the abortion pill.
  • Medications: You will be provided with mifepristone and misoprostol, click here to read more. We will also provide you with a medication (Ondansetron) to help with any nausea you may feel after taking the abortion medication.
  • Follow-up and confirmatory ultrasound: In one week, you will follow-up for a second ultrasound to confirm whether the abortion pill was successful.
