Customer Question
I’m 9 weeks along and...
I’m 9 weeks along and took mifepristone at 11:15am today. I changed my mind about wanting an abortion. I read one of your other replies that said that if I don’t start bleeding in 6-12 hours, my body might not abort the baby and I could continue the pregnancy. However, I’m worried that if I do start bleeding within 6-12 hours, that there could be complications if I don’t take the second set of pills. Basically I want to know if you’d recommend taking the misoprostl tomorrow on schedule if I start bleeding within 12 hours to avoid having to schedule a surgery to remove the dead fetus.

Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I looking forward to assisting you with your question and providing excellent service. Studies have shown that mifepristone alone is about 75-85% effective in inducing abortion. If the fetus does survive, there is no association with birth defects. Taking the single pill alone increases the risk of a missed abortion, meaning that the fetus dies without being expelled. It has nothing to do with whether or not you start bleeding right away. I cant recommend that you take or dont take the second pill. Its your choice. But I would recommend consulting with the clinic that prescribed it to you prior to making a decision

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
