Women usually have questions concerning the abortion pill. Taking a pill might seem like a quick solution to an immediate problem, but it is not without risk. We know that there is a lot of differing information out there. If you’re thinking of using the abortion pill or having a medical abortion, we are here to help you make an informed decision.

What is the Abortion Pill?

The Abortion Pill uses two medications, hormones really, to end a pregnancy. These medications cause changes in the lining of the uterus and cause muscle contractions that expel the pregnancy tissue. The French pharmaceutical company, Roussel-Uclaf, patented the drugs. The company’s initials provide the first part of the drug’s label, so the pill is sometimes called the abortion pill.

For information on the pill and assistance after taking it, call us right away 855-398-7734.


Other risks/Side Effects include:

Speak to a nurse before taking the Abortion Pill. A nurse can assist you with a free ultrasound. Note that we do not refer for abortion procedures. Please contact us to be connected to free services at 877-398-7734.

"Generally, elective abortion isn't thought to cause fertility issues or complications in future pregnancies.

Risks to future pregnancies may depend on the type of elective abortion performed:" (1)

Medical abortion. Medication is taken in early pregnancy to abort the fetus. An elective medical abortion doesn't appear to increase the risk of future pregnancy complications, as long as it's done under the guidance of your health care team.

Surgical abortion. This is a surgical procedure to remove the fetus from the uterus through the vagina. The procedure is typically done using suction or an instrument called a curet. While many studies have shown that surgical abortion has limited impact on future pregnancies, a review of multiple studies suggested a link between prior surgical abortion and a slight increased risk of premature birth and low birth weight. Women who have multiple surgical abortions using a curet are at risk of scarring of the inner lining of the uterus (Asherman syndrome). This condition is associated with difficulty in becoming pregnant in the future. (1)

There is competing evidence that abortion may or may not increases the risk of getting breast cancer. That is a discussion between you and your physician and outside the scope of this site.  

It is clear having a medical abortion is a major decision with emotional and psychological consequences. If you're considering this procedure, make sure you understand what it entails, side effects, possible risks, complications and alternatives.(2)

Many times women suffer in silence. Fear, guilt and shame often keep women from getting the help they need. If you or someone you know needs support, it can change everything.

Please call Options for Pregnancy. We are here to help.

What is an abortion?

An abortion is when a pregnancy is ended so that it does not result in the birth of a child. Sometimes this is called termination of pregnancy. The pregnancy is ended either by surgery or by taking pills. During the first trimester it is recommended that you get a sonogram before considering the options. If you would like to schedule a sonogram, please contact our office for assistance.

Note that we do not refer for abortion procedures. This service is free of charge.

Types of Abortion Procedures:

There are medical abortions (or chemical) and surgical procedures for abortion.

Surgical abortion is a procedure that ends an undesired pregnancy by removing the fetus and placenta from the mother's womb (uterus).

We can provide a referral to a local provider who can help you with more information. We do no refer for abortion.

There are both short and long term risks to the abortion pill and to surgical abortion. Approximately ten percent of women undergoing induced abortion suffer from immediate complications. It is important that any patient make an informed decision before taking any type of medication or undergoing any surgical procedure. We are here to help you in any way you need.

The further along a patient is in the pregnancy, the greater the chance of serious complications. Also, patients have a greater risk of dying from the abortion procedure. Other factors that affect the possibility of complications include the training of the doctor, type of anesthesia used, type of facility chosen, health of the patient and abortion procedure used. Please contact Free Women’s Clinic to be connected with a clinic or center that will discuss risks and options with you. Remember, it is your right and the doctor’s responsibility to inform you fully prior to the procedure. Ask all of your questions and make sure you understand the answers. You have a right to view your medical records, including your ultrasound, at any time.

Below is a description of the risks that have been associated with abortion:

Pelvic Infection: Bacteria (germs) from the vagina or cervix may enter the uterus and cause an infection. Antibiotics may clear up such an infection. In rare cases, a repeat suction, hospitalization or surgery may be needed. If a woman has Gonorrhea, Syphilis, or Chlamydia, a serious tubal infection can occur.

Retained Tissue: The thickened lining of the uterus is never completely removed during a surgical abortion, and therefore, it is normal for the uterus to naturally shed excess blood and tissue while healing. This process can lead to infection, hemorrhage, or both, especially if fetal tissue remains in the uterus. To remove remaining tissue, it may be necessary to repeat the aspiration procedure at the office or in the hospital. In rare instances, surgery is required.

Blood clots in the uterus: Blood clots that cause severe cramping.

Heavy bleeding (Hemorrhage): Some amount of bleeding is common following an abortion. Heavy bleeding (hemorrhaging) can occur in some instances. This is treated by repeat suction, medication or surgery.

Torn cervix: The opening of the uterus may be torn while it is being stretched open to allow medical instruments to pass through and into the uterus.

Perforation of the uterus wall: A medical instrument may go through the wall of the uterus. Depending on the severity, perforation can lead to infection, heavy bleeding or both. Surgery may be required to repair the uterine tissue, and in cases hysterectomy may be required.

Anesthesia-related complications: As with other surgical procedures, anesthesia increases the risk of complications associated with abortion.

Cardiac Arrest: Some patients can experience sudden cardiac arrest during an abortion.

Long-Term Medical Risks

An abortion is when a pregnancy is ended so that it does not result in the birth of a child. Sometimes this is called termination of pregnancy. The pregnancy is ended either by surgery or by taking pills. During the first trimester it is recommended that you get a sonogram before considering the options. If you would like to schedule a sonogram, please contact our office for assistance.

Abortions can have many long-term effects so learning the facts about abortion will help those trying to decide on having an abortion. You may want to learn about the health risks during and after an abortion as well as abortion alternatives .

We are here to help. We can connect you to a clinic or center in your area that can discuss abortion and all of your options with you and help you find the services you need. Note that we do not refer for abortion procedures. This service is free of charge.

We encourage you to ask yourself these important health and safety questions before visiting an abortion clinic or provider:

1. Don’t sign a consent form until you have reviewed this safety checklist.
2. Ask what your alternatives are if you decide, even at the last moment, not to abort

There are services that offer material support and options counseling free of charge. The clinic should be ready to offer this to you. For example, you may want to consult with a friend, a charity, a social worker, or an adoption agency etc. before going ahead with the abortion.

3. Have you confirmed your pregnancy?

It’s important to be sure that you are pregnant; it is possible to receive a false indication of pregnancy. We can quickly connect you with a local pregnancy center that offers free, reliable pregnancy tests and other services that check the viability of your pregnancy.

4. Do you understand the risks involved in an abortion procedure?

Abortion is a medical procedure and does involve the risk of physical harm. You have the legal right to be informed of the type of procedure you will receive, as well as any potential complications. Ask as many questions as you need, to make sure you understand all that is involved, physically and emotionally.

5. Did you investigate the qualifications of your potential abortion provider?

Find out the name of the doctor who will perform your abortion procedure, and confirm that he or she is a licensed physician and a board-certified obstetrician-gynecologist. Call and ask if the doctor has appropriate privileges to admit you to a hospital in the event that there is an emergency. Call your state agency (medical licensing board) to see if the doctor has been involved in any medical malpractice suits.

6. Ask how complications are handled.

Abortion providers may not provide any follow-up or emergency care, should complications arise. Ask the abortion clinic if the abortion doctor has admitting privileges to a hospital nearby should you require emergency care.

7. Do you understand that it’s OK to change your mind?

Abortion is your choice—meaning you can change your mind at any time. It’s OK to say, “I need more time to consider my decision,” if you are in the waiting room or even on the table prepped for your procedure. Don’t feel pressured to proceed just because you feel like you have to. It’s your body; you have the right to listen to your instincts.
