How Many Medicine Types Should I take?

One medicine type alone to cause an abortion and will be successful 90% of the time. If it is not effective the first time, you can try again after 3 days. This information is based on research from the World Health Organization.

How does an abortion pill work?

It is best used when a you are 12 weeks and below and it is they are extremely safe in terminating a pregnancy. The medicine cause contractions of the womb. As a consequence, the womb expels the pregnancy. You may feel painful cramps but there is no termination which is pain free. All termination methods are uncomfortable. You will go through your normal menstrual cycle that may be heavier than normal, nausea, vomiting and diarrhoea can also happen. All this is expected. The chance of success with abortion pills is 90%. What is important is that you have to follow the instructions to the dot and you should be fine. The risk of using medicine to end a pregnancy with medicine is similar to you having a natural miscarriage. As you are reading this there is a woman having a perfectly normal miscarriage and she will be fine. The difference between a normal miscarriage and pills abortion is that pills miscarriage is induced. The treatment of complications is the same as those of a spontaneous abortion (miscarriage). If there is a problem, a woman can always go to the hospital or any doctor. The doctor will treat her as if she had a spontaneous miscarriage. There is no way the doctor will know that the woman took medicines to induce a termination. When you do not fill fine simply go to your nearest hospital and say you had a miscarriage. It is that simple and you will get help.

What is important.

1. Be sure that you are pregnant. Testing kits are available at pharmacies.

2. Abortion pills should only be used if you are sure you want to end a pregnancy. If you start the process you will not be able to reverse it.

3. Make sure the pregnancy is normal and not ectopic (in fallopian tubes - this can only and must be terminated surgically).

4. Termination pills may not be effective after 12 weeks keep that in mind. So decide as early as possible what you want to happen.

5. A pregnancy of twelve weeks means 84 days (12 weeks) after the first day of the last menstrual period. If a woman thinks she has been pregnant for more than twelve weeks, or if the ultrasound shows this, we do not advise to take Misoprostol unless the woman has medical supervision. The medicine still works, but the risk of heavy bleeding, serious pain and complications increase the longer the pregnancy lasts.

6. Keep a friend or relative in the picture. A woman should not do an abortion alone (without any one knowing) in the event that she needs help.

7. Abortion pills should only be used if you are not seriously ill. Most illnesses are no problem. Some serious illnesses, such as, for instance, severe anaemia, can create problems because of the heavy blood loss involved.

8. Do not use alcohol, tobacco or drugs during usage of abortion by pills! You must be able to pay close attention to what is happening in your body.

9. If you fill a lot of pain use Ibuprofen, or a hot water bottle or heating pad, but never alcohol or drugs.

10. Remove any pregnacy protection devices before inducing a termination. Very important.

11. Abortion pills should be used if you within close reach to the hospital just in case you bleed very heavily. It is rear but it can happen.

12. Check your allergies to termination medicine if any. Rear but possible.

You will be given full usage instructions on getting the pills. Please follow the instructions to the dot.

The success rate is 90%.

After the first dose of medicine expect bleeding and cramps. Bleeding mostly starts between 30 minutes and four hours after using the pills, but sometimes later. Bleeding is often the first sign that the abortion starts. If the abortion continues, bleeding and cramps become more severe. Bleeding is often more and heavier than a normal menstruation, and there can be clots. The longer the pregnancy, the more heavy the cramps and the bleeding will be. If the abortion is complete, the bleeding and the cramps diminish. The moment of abortion can be noticed with a peak of heavier blood loss and more pain and cramps. Depending on the length of the pregnancy, a small pregnancy sac with some tissue around can or cannot be seen. For instance, if the woman is only five to six weeks pregnant, there will be no visible sac. At nine weeks, a woman could probably find a sac in between the blood.

If no bleeding occurs after the third dose, the abortion did not take place and the woman has to try it again. The major reason of failure of abortion by pills is because users do follow instructions STRICTLY.

Pain Killers

Ibuprofen is the most effective painkiller for cramps. You can also use other painkillers like Naproxen and Diclofenac. If you cannot obtain Ibuprofen, Paracetamol or Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Aspirin (salicylic acid) also help. For some women, additionally a hot water bottle on the belly brings relief. Please read the patient instructions of the package of painkillers you obtained for the maximum doses you can use.

Bleeding after the abortion

Bleeding continues lightly one to three weeks after the abortion, but sometimes shorter or longer. Every woman's body is different. The normal menstrual period mostly returns after four to six weeks.

Making sure an abortion has occurred

Some women bleed without having an abortion. Therefore it is important that the woman makes sure that an abortion really occurred. It can take two to three weeks before a pregnancy test becomes negative. So if possible, have an ultrasound made about one week after the abortion to make sure that the pregnancy has ended. It is normal for some blood and tissue to be still in the uterus after 7-10 days; this will come out with the next menstrual period. As long as there is no fever, pain, heavy bleeding or vaginal discharge, remains in the womb is not a problem.


The most common side effects are nausea, vomiting and diarrhea. A woman can also have some fever.


If there is heavy bleeding Heavy bleeding is bleeding that lasts for more than 2-3 hours and soaks more than 2-3 maxi sanitary pads per hour. Feeling dizzy or light-headed can be a sign of too much blood loss, and means that there could be a danger to the woman's health. If the strong bleeding does not diminish after 2-3 hours, it might be a sign of an incomplete abortion (remains of the pregnancy are still in the womb), which needs medical treatment. This can happen a couple of hours after taking Misoprostol but also two weeks or longer after the abortion. In this case a woman should go to the nearest hospital or doctor to seek help. Just say one thing that you had a miscarriage and do not say anything more. If fever occurs Chills are a normal side effect of abortion medicine. However, if the woman has a fever (> 38 degrees Celsius) for more than 24 hours, or if she has a fever of more than 39 degrees, contact a doctor, because there might be an infection as a result of an incomplete abortion that needs treatment (with antibiotics and/or vacuum aspiration).

If the abortion Medicine or Pill did not work:

When Misoprostol did not cause any bleeding at all or there was a little bleeding but the pregnancy still continues, this means the abortion did not happen try again after a few days or seek abortion by surgery (this is an expensive alternative). Just go to a hospital and say you that you think you had a miscarriage.

If the abortion was incomplete, you might need a dilation & curettage (D&C) or a vacuum aspiration, during which a doctor will remove remaining tissue from the womb.
