If you are facing an unplanned pregnancy, it is normal to feel overwhelmed by emotion and questions. Abortion is a life-altering decision and it should not be made alone. At Robbinsdale Women’s Center, we are here to support you and give you the facts about abortion.

What is an Abortion?

Abortion is a medical procedure that terminates a pregnancy. There are several different kinds of abortions, RU-486 or medical abortion and surgical abortion. Each procedure has varying levels of availability depending on what state you live in and how far along your pregnancy is.

What is the abortion pill?

Known as the abortion pill, medication abortion involves two different drugs, and can only be taken in the first ten weeks of pregnancy.  

The first drug Mifepristone blocks progesterone and interrupts pregnancy development prompting the detachment of the implanted embryo. Thinning prevents the embryo from remaining implanted and growing. 

The second drug, Misoprostol, causes the uterus to contract and expel the pregnancy through the vagina.

The first dose of the abortion pill is taken at a doctor’s office or abortion clinic, and the second at home 24-48 hours later. A follow-up appointment with a doctor is necessary, a week later, to ensure the abortion is complete (FDA).

What do I Need to Know Abortion?

Abortion, like any other medical procedure, comes with its own risks and side effects. You should educate yourself about all of the possible risks of the procedure. It is important to speak with a medical professional before any medical procedure to get accurate facts and information.
