Medication Abortion with Misoprostol Only
(Abortion Pill)

UPDATE:

Falls Church Healthcare Center is aware of the recent ruling which was decided in Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine v. FDA  in March 2023 — a lawsuit which challenged the FDA’s decades-old approval of Mifepristone, one of the two medications typically used to provide medication abortion care. The lawsuit’s purpose was to revoke the FDA’s approval of Mifepristone in an attempt to effectively ban medication abortion nationwide.

Det er vigtigt at huske det Mifepristone is a very safe medication —  one which has been used very safely for over two decades. This politically-charged legal decision does not change this fact. However, this decision has created a barrier for patients to access Mifepriston . Many different groups are challenging this decision and working hard to reinstate the original FDA decision to approve Mifepristone for use.

In the meantime, FCHC will be using a Misoprostol-only  medication abortion regimen. Misoprostol is also a very safe medication, and Misoprostol-only abortion has been used successfully for many years as well. Studies of self-managed use of Misoprostol-only regimens have found high levels of effectiveness, with 93-99% of participants reporting complete abortions without the need for surgical intervention.

En medicinabort (også kendt som "abortpiller") er en sikker og effektiv metode til abort gennem 11 uger.

At Falls Church Healthcare we are currently using medicinen Μisоpгostоl as a means for patients to end their pregnancies.

Du får mulighed for at mødes med din patientuddannelse for at diskutere proceduren og dine følelser og bekymringer inden denne aftale. Vores personale er her for at støtte og hjælpe både patienter og dem, der er sammen med dig i denne oplevelse.

Det tager kun 5-10 minutter at gennemføre selve medicinenabortproceduren. Du bør dog forvente at være i vores center for dine aftaler til 1.5 at 2 timer - som inkluderer registrering, papirarbejde, laboratorietjenester, proceduregennemgang og din aktuelle aftale om abortpleje.

Hvad kan man forvente:

  1. At your abortion care appointment, you will undergo an ultrasound in order for our clinician to locate and measure your pregnancy. The clinician will meet with you and review your health history and answer any questions you may have about medication abortion.
  2. Our clinician will provide you with Μisоpгostоl, a medication which you will take at home, as well as specific instructions on how to proceed with this medication. It softens the cervix, and uterine cramping and bleeding (like during your period) begins to expel the pregnancy. Cramping and bleeding may be moderate to heavy. Our clinician may also prescribe medication for pain and nausea relief to counteract the symptoms of the Misoprostol.

Hjemme: You will take the Μisоpгostоl tablets as directed, helping the uterus to contract and empty. After you take the Μisоpгostоl you will have bleeding and strong cramping that may be severe, dramatic or simply similar to one of your “bad” periods. This usually occurs within seven hours of taking the Misprostol and may last a few hours.

  • En varmepude kan hjælpe med kramper.
  • Du kan opleve kvalme, opkastning, diarré, feber, kulderystelser eller føle dig træt. Disse symptomer varer normalt kun kort tid og stopper alene. Alles oplevelses- og komfortniveauer vil være forskellige.
  • Du får muligvis en recept fra din læge til smertebehandling, der skal udfyldes på dit apotek.

Efter to (2) uger du vil udfylde din opfølgende velværerapport: enten online, telefonisk eller personligt. Efter fire (4) uger du vil tage en urin-hCG-hormontest, som vil blive leveret til dig.

Der er muligheder for din opfølgende vurdering for at bekræfte, at du med succes har udvist dit graviditetsvæv fuldstændigt, som vi kan gennemgå med dig.
