Dr. Owen :

Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.

Dr. Owen :

Hello

Dr. Owen :

Which abortion pill - was it the combination of Mifepristone and Cytotec?

Dr. Owen :

Hello

Dr. Owen :

Are you there

Dr. Owen :

What is going on?

Dr. Owen :

When in the pregnancy did she take this so called abortion pill?

Customer:

im checking .evil planned parenthood administered the pill

Dr. Owen :

How many weeks was she when she took this?

Customer:

i think a month ago.she is at 5months now

Dr. Owen :

So she took a combination of pills then

Dr. Owen :

And she took pills at 4 months - so she was about 15 to 16 weeks along, really?

Customer:

im waiting for her to text me back.she goes in for ultrasound tomorrow

Dr. Owen :

okay

Customer:

no reply.worse senario

Dr. Owen :

Well the good news is that the child has a heart beat

Dr. Owen :

And, if the medication was given essentially AFTER 12 to 14 weeks, then there really should not be any birth defects because the abortion pill(s) at that stage really just dilates the cervix, nothing more - if all she took was Cytotec

Dr. Owen :

So, I do not believe there will be any birth defects based on what you said.

Dr. Owen :

I hope this helps

Dr. Owen :

Dr. Owen :

okay - but again this sounds like it was after 12 to 14 weeks.

Customer:

yes

Dr. Owen :

so probably the baby would do well -

Dr. Owen :

And, hopefully the baby will do fine.
