A woman who needs to terminate unwanted pregnancy can either use the abortion pill if the pregnancy is still in its stages and this procedure is also known as a medical abortion.
You may be tempted to buy mifepristone and misoprostol online. While it is possible to get medical abortion pills over the internet, it is actually illegal to take them without the assistance of a qualified physician.
Mifepristone is the first abortion pill that needs to be taken in order to stop the pregnancy hormone Progesterone.
Progesterone helps the womb to grow if you are pregnant and also keeps it from having contractions hence being able to carry on with the pregnancy till you give birth.
Without it the pregnancy can not continue. Should you be pregnant and start having contractions, you need to seek medical attention immediately because it might lead to a miscarriage.
o12 – 24 we suggest you choose a time that works for you either on weekends when you are not working or taking a day off.
When ready, you will be required to take the Misoprostol either by swallowing them or by inserting them via the vagina.
If the abortion pills are to be inserted via the vagaina, wash your hands first, then while squatting down, use your middle finger and push the abortion tablets inside the vagina as far as your index finger can go.
What to expect when you terminate unwanted Pregnancy
The symptoms associated with medical abortion procedures are not that very harsh and most women are able to handle them. Right after inserting the pills we suggest you lie down for about an hour so that the medication may take its cause.
The symptoms to expect will include:-
Cramping like period pains
Upset stomach and vomiting
Mild fever (99-100° F) or chills.
How to handle the Symptoms while terminating a pregnancy
The miscarriage or pregnancy should be terminated with 4 to 5 hours though some women might take longer than expected. However during the whole process we advise you follow these tips.
Using over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medications like ibuprofen, Advil or Motrin can help easing the pain. Don’t take aspirin because it can make your bleeding worse.
Put a heating pad or hot water bottle on your belly will help with the blood clots to become soft and easily come out during bleeding.
When you start bleeding we suggest you sit on the toilet so that all the heavy bleeding may easily flow out without any distractions.
In order to reduce the risk of infection after terminating unwanted pregnancy, it is recommended that you not:
- Don’t put anything in your vagina, including tampons
- Avoid strenuous activities, sports or hard work, until the bleeding stops.
- Avoid going for swims or take a bath (you can take a shower).
- Should you experience more more bleeding than expected or foul-smelling discharge, you should contact your nearest medical abortion clinic immediately.
