The Medical Abortion Process

A medical abortion is a two-step process involving mifepristone and misoprostol

First, mifepristone blocks progesterone, a vital hormone that sustains a pregnancy. Next, misoprostol causes the uterus to contract and expel the pregnancy through the vagina.

The FDA has approved this abortion method through 10 weeks gestation. An ultrasound is needed to confirm how far along you are and verify important pregnancy details before proceeding with any type of abortion procedure.
