Abortion Pill (RU-486)
Within 4 to 7 weeks after LMP
Also known as the “Abortion Pill”, this medical abortion is used for women who are within 28 to 49 days after their last menstrual period. This procedure usually requires three office visits. The RU 486 or mifepristone pills are given to the woman who returns two days later for a second medication called misoprostol. The combination of these medications causes the uterus to expel the fetus.
