The Abortion Pill

Mifeprex or RU-486

Non-surgical abortions, sometimes called "medical abortions," are performed in the first 9 weeks in the first trimester. Non-surgical abortion can be administered in pill form (otherwise known as Mifeprex or RU-486). Mifeprex is approved by the FDA for non-surgical abortion. Non-surgical abortion will stop your pregnancy from growing and vaginal suppositories will help expel your pregnancy. Since there is always a statistically small chance of failure with this method, you must be willing to have a surgical abortion if the non-surgical abortion fails. In addition, you must be able to be able to receive phone calls from the office and commit to two or more visits to the office in case they are required.

How does Mifeprex work?

Mifeprex blocks a hormone needed for your pregnancy to continue. When used together with another medicine called misoprostol, Mifeprex ends your pregnancy.

How safe is Mifeprex?

The FDA, which has tested it for both safety and effectiveness, has approved Mifeprex. In the past decade, almost 700,000 women in Europe have safely used Mifeprex to end their pregnancies. It is now approved for use in more than 23 countries.

What are the advantages of Mifeprex?

Because Mifeprex comes in pill form and is taken by mouth, you can usually avoid surgery. Also, because it works very early in your pregnancy, Mifeprex allows you to take early action to end your pregnancy.

What are the side effects of Mifeprex?

Bleeding and cramping are a normal part of the process. The bleeding can be heavier than a normal period and usually lasts from 9-16 days. In some cases, women may have severe bleeding and then would need to contact the clinic or their doctor immediately. Your provider will instruct you on how to handle any pain, nausea, headache, vomiting, or diarrhea that could also occur.

How effective is Mifeprex?

Mifeprex followed by the vaginal insertions is approximately 98% effective.

Early in pregnancy an abortion may be performed using a manual aspiration device. This procedure is done in early pregnancies, and is a simple, natural, and gentle method to end the pregnancy. This procedure is similar to the suction aspiration procedure used in abortions up to 12-13 weeks. The gentle aspiration (or Manual Vacuum Aspiration) system consists of thin flexible tubing, but instead of using a machine to create suction, the suction is created silently by a handheld instrument. The flexible tubing is much smaller than those used in later pregnancies. The procedure usually takes less than 5 or 6 minutes to complete.

Gentle aspiration may be performed in a medical office using local anesthesia. There is no scraping or cutting and bleeding is usually minimal. Typically, you can quickly return to your daily activities.

Sometimes, your pregnancy may be greater than 9 weeks and you will need to undergo the more conventional surgical procedure offered at our West side NYC office, or at our sister offices in Queens and White Plains. Go to for more complete information and directions or, for your convenience, call:
