Abortion Pill

Non-Surgical Abortion with Mifepristone

Mifepristone is a synthetic hormone that was originally developed in France, Europe (abortion pill). It’s a SAFE and EFFECTIVE alternative to surgical abortions.

Since the FDA’s approval in 2000, the abortion pill has also been widely used in the United States. At Michael Benjamin’s office have been using the Abortion Pill since then with very satisfactory results.

Benefits

  • Early Abortion (up to the 10th week of pregnancy)
  • Mifepristone is as SAFE and EFFECTIVE as a surgical abortion
  • May involve a longer process and increased pain, but it’s ideal for women whose priority is privacy, autonomy, or the comforts of their own home.

We provide a preliminary screening including a pelvic ultrasound to insure that the stage and location of the pregnancy. If there are no medical issues, we administer the Mifepristone tablet at the time of the initial visit.

We provide a second drug, Cytotec, as well as pain medication of choice with instructions for use at home. We include a 2 week follow-up visit to insure that the procedure is complete.

How the Abortion Pill Works

Mifepristone, once absorbed into they system, blocks the “hormone of pregnancy”, progesterone. This is the hormone that maintains the lining membrane of the uterus. Once deprived progesterone, the membrane disintegrates and the pregnancy detaches. The pregnancy will naturally miscarry if further action doesn’t take place.

This may not occur, however, for many days. To hasten the process, we have chosen to administer Cytotec, a drug that is well established as a safe and effective method of contracting the uterus. When taken 6 hours after Mifepristone, it rapidly and reliably causes the uterus to contract resulting in miscarriage.

Results

In our experience, Mifepristone (abortion pill) followed by Cytotec has been approximately 95-97% effective in terminating pregnancy when used between the 4th and 10th week of pregnancy.

For the small percentage of failure to terminate the pregnancy, surgical termination is strongly recommended and is provided at an additional charge.

An additional 1% of patients will require D&C to remove tissue not completely expelled in the process of miscarriage. In general, we have found a high percentage of satisfaction in well selected patients who choose Mifepristone.
