Hi, It's Dr. C. Board certified Ob-gyne with 30+ years of experience. I can help you this morning.

I'm sorry that you're in this situation. The safest and most effective way this early is to get a "medical abortion". This involves taking 2 different types of pills. One taken in the office and the 2nd usually at home later. The earlier these medications are taken, the more effective. So being as early as you are means that success rate will be very high, close to 100%. To find services for this, call the closest Planned Parenthood. They provide services on a sliding scale so people who can afford to pay more pay more, but people who can't afford it, pay less.

I hope this was helpful. Please reply if I can clarify anything.

What's the name of two pills I will take
OB GYN Doctor: Dr. C., Board Certified replied 2 years ago

The pills are misoprostol and mefeprisone.

The mefepristone is highly regulated and can only be obtained in a doctors office or at an abortion clinic. Different clinics use different dosages but the latest research shows that a better success rate is with a single pill of 200mg.

The misoprostol is easier to obtain. It has many other uses besides for medical abortion. The dose and how to take it varies from clinic to clinic but latest research shows it's most effective when the 8 pills are placed inside the cheek and allowed to dissolve there as long as possible. They don't taste good so eventually most women swallow them.

The usual dose is 8 pills of 100mcg strength. There may be some variation in dosing so don't worry about that.

There is sometimes a different medication used instead of the mefepristone called methotrexate. It's easier to obtain but not as effective.

OB GYN Doctor: Dr. C., Board Certified replied 2 years ago

Some clinics make the woman come back to take the second set of pills in the office the day after the mefepristone. But some clinics give the woman the pills to take home and use the next day.

The cramping and bleeding usually starts within a couple of hours of taking the 2nd set of pills. It will be intense cramping and the bleeding can be heavy. But the whole process is usually pretty short, lasting not more than 2-4 hours.

Any other questions? I want to be sure you have the most helpful information for your situation.
