What is the abortion pill?
Officially named RU-486, the abortion pill is actually two drugs, mifepristone and misoprostol, and it’s taken in two separate doses (one at the clinic and one at home.) Another name for RU-486 is a medical or chemical abortion. The abortion pill can cost anywhere between $450-$800.
Make an appointment today to confirm your pregnancy and explore your options. All services are discreet and confidential.
How does it work? When is it taken?
It is usually taken between 4-6 weeks but it can be taken up to 70 days after a woman’s last known menstrual period. The abortion pill is not an option for people with certain medical conditions or if the pregnancy occurs outside of the uterus. If you are considering taking the abortion pill, it is critical to have an obstetric ultrasound and determine how far along you are and if the pregnancy is viable.
What if I’m in my second trimester?
At your appointment, we can determine gestation and help you figure out your next steps. We’re happy to answer all your questions about second-trimester surgical abortions or late-term abortion procedures as well as give you information and resources for pregnancy options and resources in your first, second, or third trimester.
Note: All our services are provided at no cost to you. We do not perform or refer for abortions at Full Circle.
