Ultrasound shows whether the pregnancy is in the womb and the length (number of weeks) of a woman’s pregnancy. Misoprostol should not be used after 12 or more weeks of pregnancy. A pregnancy of twelve weeks means 84 days (24 weeks) after the first day of the last menstrual period. If a woman thinks she has been pregnant for more than twelve weeks, or if the ultrasound shows this, we do not advise to take Misoprostol unless the woman has medical supervision. The medicine still works, but the risk of heavy bleeding, serious pain and complications increase the longer the pregnancy lasts. A woman should not do abortion alone. Misoprostol can only be used without medical guidance when a woman has no serious illness. Most illnesses are no problem. Some serious illnesses, such as, for instance, severe anaemia, can create problems because of the heavy blood loss involved. Serious illnesses are sometimes a reason for a legal abortion, even in countries with restrictive laws. Do not use alcohol or drugs during the treatment!!! The woman must be able to pay close attention to what is happening in her body. If the cramps are very painful, she can use Ibuprofen, or a hot water bottle or heating pad, but never alcohol or drugs. Misoprostol should not be used when there is a possibility of an ectopic (or extra-uterine) pregnancy An ectopic (or extra-uterine pregnancy) is not in the womb (Uterus). An ectopic pregnancy can be detected by having an ultrasound. Treatment by a gynecologist is then necessary to ensure the health of the woman. If not treated, there is a risk of heavy internal bleeding due to the rupturing of the fallopian tube. Gynecologists treat women for this condition in all countries, even in countries where abortion is illegal. An ectopic pregnancy cannot be treated with Misoprostol. Misoprostol should not be used if the woman has an intrauterine device – IUD.
Can the abortion pill be reversed after you have taken it? Here’s the deal: The “abortion pill” is the popular name for a safe and effective way to end an early pregnancy using a combination of two medicines: mifepristone and misoprostol. The first medicine (mifepristone) is given at a health center or your health care provider’s office. After taking mifepristone, you take a second medication (misoprostol) at home 6-48 hours later. This causes cramping and bleeding and empties your uterus. Claims about treatments that reverse the effects of medication abortion are out there, and a handful of states require doctors and nurses to tell their patients about them before they can provide abortion care. But these claims haven’t been proven in reliable medical studies — nor have they been tested for safety, effectiveness, or the likelihood of side effects. so experts like the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists reject these untested supposed treatments. Studies on the abortion pill do show that if you take the first medicine but not the second, the abortion pill is less likely to work. So if you’ve begun the process of having an abortion using the abortion pill but are having second thoughts. contact the doctor or nurse you saw for the abortion right away to talk about your best next steps and what to expect.
