The Abortion Pill | Medical Abortion
We provide info on medical abortions, first-trimester options, and free limited pregnancy services.
What is the abortion pill?
The abortion pill is actually two drugs taken in two separate doses. Other names for the abortion pill are medication, medical, chemical, or at-home abortion. Although it is sometimes also called the 10-week-after-pill or missed period pills, it is not the same as emergency contraception.
How does it work? When is it taken?
The abortion pill is FDA-approved up through 10 weeks after a woman's last menstrual period. The abortion pill is not an option for people with certain medical conditions, if the pregnancy is not viable, or if the pregnancy occurs outside of the uterus. For your health and safety, these conditions should be confirmed or ruled out via ultrasound.
