Abortion Pill

The abortion pill is often referred to as a medication abortion. It is actually two different medications taken in sequence. The first one, mifepristone, is taken during your carafem appointment. The second dose is 4 pills called misoprostol, which are taken at home up to 72 hours (at the latest).

  • The abortion pill safely and effectively ends a pregnancy in a way that feels more like a natural process than a procedure.
  • The abortion pill may be better for those who have never had a pelvic exam or like the privacy of having an abortion at home.
  • You can choose when you take the medication/when the abortion will happen, which means the actual abortion can be timed to start the same day as your office visit or up to 3 days after your appointment — depending on what’s best for you.
  • Your visit at carafem takes about 60 minutes. While a follow-up visit is sometimes recommended, it is often not necessary.

Abortion Procedure

Some people refer to an in-office abortion as surgical, when in fact, there is absolutely no surgery involved in this process. We use a gentle handheld suction device that is safe, quiet, and non-invasive. This is called a Manual Vacuum Aspiration.

  • The in-office procedure is quick. With our experienced providers, the procedure takes about 2-7 minutes, no longer than a regular pap smear.
  • You leave our facility no longer pregnant.
  • The visit lasts about 90 minutes.
  • There is less bleeding and cramping at home.
  • Usually no follow-up visit is required.
