A medical abortion is a procedure that uses medication to end a pregnancy. A medical abortion doesn’t require surgery or anesthesia and can be started either in a medical office or at home with follow-up visits to your doctor. It’s safer and most effective during the first trimester of pregnancy.
Before we prescribe the medication, a physician at Mile High Women’s Clinic will evaluate your medical history with you and confirm your pregnancy one more time. They will discuss the procedure, the side effects and possible risks. You can have a pre-treatment counseling session if you so desire, although we do not require it. when you’re ready, you’ll receive your medication and we’ll release you to take it on your own time.
Before your procedure, make sure you have these items on hand wherever you plan to be recovering:
You may also want to plan to take a day or two for yourself following the procedure. Having a medical abortion can be an emotional, empowering time, and you should ensure you’re taking the best care of yourself possible. This is the perfect time to curl up in your bed with soft blankets, a heating pad, some snacks and your favorite books or movies and just relax.
Rest is an essential part of any recovery, so try not to be too hard on yourself during this time or over-exert yourself until you’re feeling back to normal again. Most people are able to return to their normal activity levels within a couple of days. However, you may experience side effects for upwards of one to two weeks following your medical abortion.
