We know that an unplanned pregnancy can be stressful and that having an abortion raises a lot of questions.

How long does the abortion pill take to work?

After you’ve taken both medications, it usually takes about 2 to 24 hours for the pregnancy to be removed from your body.  In some cases, you may still be pregnant, or you haven’t completely passed all of the tissue from your body. This is why following up with your healthcare provider is important. If this is the case, they’ll discuss your options with you, which may include another medication dose or surgery.

How does taking the abortion pill work?

Step 1: Counseling, maybe an ultrasound, and maybe a waiting period

First, you’ll fill out some paperwork. You’ll talk with a healthcare provider, and you may have an ultrasound to find out or confirm how far along you are in your pregnancy. If your pregnancy is more than 11 weeks long, then medication abortion may not be an option for you.

If the state where you’re getting your abortion has a mandatory waiting period, you’ll have to wait some number of hours between the counseling appointment and the appointment when you’ll take the first medication. But If there is a waiting period, and you are going to have to travel a long way for your abortion, ask if virtual counseling is an option when you call to make your appointment.

Step 2: Take medication #1 at a health center

Your healthcare provider will give you the first of two medications and explain when and how you’ll take the second medication.

The first medication is called mifepristone. Mifepristone blocks the hormone progesterone. Because progesterone is necessary for pregnancy to continue, blocking it begins the process of ending the pregnancy. Mifepristone doesn’t usually cause any symptoms, so you probably won’t feel anything after you take it.


Step 3: Take medication #2 at home or somewhere safe

Twenty-four to 48 hours after taking mifepristone, you’ll take the second medication, called misoprostol. You may take one or two doses of misoprostol—your provider will let you know. For this step, you need to be at home or in some other safe place where you can relax and where you’ll have easy access to a bathroom (like a friend’s house or a hotel room). Misoprostol empties your uterus, expelling the pregnancy. It causes cramping and bleeding.

How much does an abortion with the abortion pill hurt?

Just like with the abortion procedure, how much an abortion with the abortion pill hurts varies from person to person. It may last for several hours, as the abortion itself takes longer to be completed with the abortion pill than with the abortion procedure, which usually takes just a few minutes. You can take over-the-counter pain medications, or your provider may prescribe pain medication for you to take at home. In addition to pain medicine, you may find that using a heating pad reduces pain. Other techniques like breathing exercises and meditation can also help with pain.

When should you contact a healthcare provider after taking the abortion pill?

Your abortion provider should give you information about when and how to contact them after an abortion, but if they don’t, ask them for emergency contact information and for what things to watch out for.

You should always reach out to your provider if something doesn’t feel right to you after an abortion, or if you have questions or concerns.

  1. No bleeding yet, and it’s been 24 hours since you took the second medication (the one you take at home)
  2. Excessive bleeding (defined as soaking two pads per hour for two hours; keep in mind that bleeding may be heavy, and you may pass blood clots, though)
  3. Fever higher than 100.4 F
  4. Chills more than 24 hours after taking the second medication
