Medical Abortion RU-486 (pill): (up to 10 weeks) The Mifeprex/Mifepristone combination is dispensed in two phases. Mifeprex is given first to cause the death of the baby.
Mifepristone is given 24-48 hours later to start the cramping/contractions which should expel the baby and empty the uterus. Follow-up care is necessary to ensure that the uterus is empty. An incomplete abortion presents serious risks of infection and bleeding.
1st Trimester Surgical: (up to 13 weeks) Procedure varies slightly depending on how far into the 1st trimester. In general, the cervix may be softened and/or stretched open to allow surgical removal and/or suction of the uterine contents.
2nd Trimester Surgical: (13-24 weeks) Procedure similar to 1st trimester surgical, but cervix must be opened wider to accommodate larger baby. This process can take a day or two before the actual abortion procedure is done. Surgical instruments are usually required to disrupt the body to allow surgical evacuation of the body parts through the cervix.
