How does the abortion pill work?
The medical abortion consists of taking two medications: mifepristone and misoprostol. The mifepristone medication is taken at your scheduled appointment in the office. Twenty-four-to-48 hours later, the misoprostol tablets are taken. After taking the misoprostol, most women experience a heavy menstrual period and cramps. Every woman experiences this differently and levels of discomfort vary.
