Unplanned pregnancies are far more common than you may think, affecting millions of women in the United States every year. Although many women opt to give birth, approximately 40% of women facing an unintended pregnancy choose to terminate it with an abortion. A medication abortion uses the abortion pill to safely and effectively terminate an early pregnancy. Access Health Care in Downers Grove, Illinois, offers medication abortion services to patients in the greater Chicago-land area. To learn more, call or request your appointment online today.

Medication Abortion Q & A

What is a Medication Abortion?
How Does the Abortion Pill Work?
Are There Any Potential Side Effects?

The FDA has tested and approved the abortion pill for both safety and effectiveness. It is currently approved for use in over 23 countries Bleeding, cramping, and passing orange-size clots are all a normal part of the process. Heavier-than-normal bleeding usually lasts for nine to 16 days. Your doctor at Access Health Center will let you know how to address any pain, nausea, headache, vomiting, or diarrhea that may occur. If you experience severe bleeding, however, you should contact your doctor immediately or head into the nearest emergency room.

Why Do Women Choose a Medication Abortion?

If you’ve decided to end an unplanned pregnancy, the type of abortion you choose — or are able to have — depends on your situation. If you’re still in the early stages of the first trimester, a medication abortion allows you to experience the process in the comfort of your own home, either with a support person or on your own. Because the process is similar to a miscarriage, a medication abortion may feel more “natural” and less invasive. Your doctor at Access Health Center can help you decide which type of abortion is best for you.
