Is the abortion pill the same as the morning after pill?

What should I expect at my appointment and what do I need?
You will need to bring in your form of payment as well as a picture ID such as a driver’s license or passport. We accept cash, credit, and debit; we do not accept checks. You should expect to be in the office for about an hour. (Please fill out the patient forms found on this site beforehand to hasten your appointment.) During that time you will fill out some paperwork if you have not done so already, have an ultrasound, receive the first dose of the abortion pill, and will be provided with the second dose of the abortion pill to be taken at home.
How does the abortion pill work?
The abortion pill is more accurately described as a succession of two medications. The 1st dose, Mifepristone, will be taken here in our office and will cause the body to miscarry. The 2nd dose, Misoprostol, is taken at home and will cause the uterus to contract and expel the pregnancy.
How effective is the abortion pill?
The abortion pill is very effective. It has been our experience that taking Mifepristone followed by Misoprostol is 95%-97% effective within the first 10 weeks of pregnancy.
Can I get pregnant again after taking the abortion pill?
Most woman can become pregnant again within two weeks of taking the abortion pill. Ask us about our birth control options and we can help choose a plan for you.
