You will need at least 1 visit. Some women may require 2-3 visits. 95% of patients doing a medical abortion using Mifepristone will be completed in the first week. Bleeding usually starts within 30 minutes to 3-4 hours after using the Misoprostol and may be heavy for 4-8 hours. You may continue to have some bleeding or spotting for a few weeks. There is a 5% chance of a delayed reaction. This does not mean you need surgery but does make the process take longer as you may require more medication and time to pass the tissue
Do I need to miss work/school?
One of the advantages is that you can plan when taking the Abortion Pill is convenient. Once you take the second set of pills, the miscarriage usually happens within 45 min. In this case, you don’t have to miss work or school. In this case, where the bleeding is delayed, we recommend that you stay home until the miscarriage takes place.
Side effects may include – mild gastrointestinal (stomach) upset nausea; diarrhoea; headache; fever and chills or occasional spotting or bleeding.
Abdominal cramping, mild fevers, and mild gastrointestinal (stomach) upset.
Bleeding usually follows the cramping and can be heavier than usual for several hours. The bleeding then tapers off to light bleeding like a period.
Side effects are typically mild and tolerable, usually lasting a couple of hours but in some cases may last up to a few days.
There is a 3-5% failure rate with this medication and if they have failed to induce an abortion it is recommended that you return to the clinic for uterine aspiration to complete the procedure as the medication is known to cause fetal demise.
