ABORTION PILL up to 10 Weeks
The Abortion Pill is available to women up to ten weeks (70 days) from your last period. It is a great alternative to the in-office, surgical abortion procedure.
Patients appreciate that they are able to be in the comfort of their own home to experience the abortion pill process. You will take one pill — mifepristone — at our office and go home with another medication — misoprostol — to use the next day.
In the privacy of your own home, you will experience some bleeding and cramping. We will prescribe a medication so you are comfortable during the process. Patients overwhelmingly report that it was a very positive experience that felt very natural and comfortable.
Having offered the abortion pill since 2000, Presidential Women’s Center has more experience in South Florida than any other abortion clinic.
Our Physicians, nurses, counselors and our entire healthcare team are specifically trained to ensure that you are well-prepared for the process and have the information that you need.
The patient takes her first pill, Mifepristone, orally at our office.
In the privacy of her own home, the next day the patient will insert four tablets of Misoprostol between the cheek and gums of her mouth. Within the next few hours, the patient will experience bleeding and cramping that can range from light to heavy.
The experience can last up to several hours, so we ask that the patient make arrangements for childcare and schedule the day off from work.
All patients should return to our Center for a follow-up visit within 3-14 days so that we can confirm that the process is complete.
In October 2000, the FDA approved use of the drug Mifepristone (Mifeprex) for inducing abortion. Since that time, Presidential Women’s Center has been offering abortion by pill to our patients as a highly successful alternative to the surgical procedure.
The feedback we have received from the women choosing this option has been overwhelmingly positive. Although the abortion by pill is more involved and can be a lengthier process, patients choose the abortion pill option because they feel it is more natural and appreciate that they are able to be in their own homes.
Presidential Women’s Center is accredited by the National Abortion Federation (NAF), the largest national organization of abortion providers and adheres to the highest standards set by NAF.
