How does the abortion pill work?
- The Abortion Pill is typically a set of two medications (Mifepristone & Misoprostol) that, when taken in succession, will aid in the termination of an early pregnancy. Mifepristone blocks progesterone from the developing pregnancy, causing the pregnancy to stop progressing. Misoprostol causes uterine contractions which will then expel the no longer developing pregnancy.
How much does the abortion pill cost?
- The Abortion Pill cost varies but general estimates are between $300-$800. The cost is depended on the clinic and your insurance coverage.
Where can I get the abortion pill?
- In order to be able to prescribe the abortion pill, a clinic must typically be able to accurately date a pregnancy, confirm that the pregnancy is located properly, and provide emergency services in case complications occur. Before moving forward with the abortion pill, it’s important to do your research.
What do I need to do before taking the abortion pill?
- If you find yourself pregnant and are looking into the abortion pill, Avenue Women’s Center is your first step. At your free consultation, you will receive information to help as you process your questions, including “How early/late can women take the abortion pill?” “What variables can impact how much the abortion pill costs?” “Is the abortion pill right for me?” and more. You can also receive a free ultrasound exam, which will let you know if you are early enough in pregnancy to qualify for the abortion pill. It will also give you information regarding the early pregnancy risks of miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy. These are important pieces of information to have before moving forward.
Avenue Women’s Center offers free, confidential services as the first step for any woman who is looking into their pregnancy options. Please call or text today to schedule your free appointment at any of our six Chicagoland centers.
