THIS IS OUR MEDICAL PROCEDURE


Termination of pregnancy is your legal right. Be sure to choose a safe, legal provider.

A Medical Abortion procedure is a form of early abortion caused by the combination of two Abortion pills. While at the clinic a healthcare Professional will have a scan or some pregnancy tests done in order to confirm the number of weeks then we shall walk you through how the whole procedure will work and what will be needed

A scan will be performed to detect the health of the fetus if it is in the normal position. You will be given a pill to swallow which is meant to block the hormone called (Progesterone) that is needed to maintain the pregnancy. Because this hormone is blocked, the uterine lining begins to shed, hence softening the cervix. After a few hours, another set of tablets will be placed in the vagina. You can place the tablets yourself or have a healthcare professional place them.

These pills will cause you to have cramps and bleeding. This usually starts about 2 hours after using the pills but may start sooner.

Bleeding and cramping usually last a few hours. You may see large blood clots or tissue at the time of the abortion and you will probably need pain medicine. Most women pass the pregnancy within 4 or 5 hours after taking the misoprostol. For others it can be quicker or take longer.

The Abortion Procedure where by Abortion pills are used to Terminate the Pregnancy is very effective, but it is still very important to have a follow-up appointment to make sure it has worked. Your follow-up appointment may be 2-3 weeks later in person or by phone. Contraception can be initiated as soon as the termination of the pregnancy has been confirmed, or before the woman resumes sexual intercourse.
A recent study found that Women who under a Medical Abortion Procedure don’t suffer from long-term psychological problems
