Early Medical Abortion (The “Abortion Pill”)
Mifepristone “Mifeprex” & Misoprostol “Cytotec”

Mifepristone, also called RU486 or Mifeprex: is used to block the action of a hormone called progesterone. Progesterone is naturally produced in the mother’s body to stabilize the lining of the uterus. When RU-486 blocks progesterone the lining of the mother’s uterus breaks down cutting off oxygen and nutrition to the embryo/fetus causing the embryo/fetus to die. If you change your mind about abortion, it is possible to reverse the effects of RU-486 and save the embryo/fetus by receiving progesterone. No known birth defects are noted after taking RU-486 by itself.

Misoprostol, also called Cytotec: is a synthetic steroid used to cause contractions inside the uterus and dilation (opening) of the cervix. Misoprostol is taken between 24 to 48 hours after RU-486. The combination of RU-486 and Misoprostol causes severe cramping and contractions and heavy bleeding to force the dead embryo/fetus outside of the woman’s uterus. This process can be intense and painful and the bleeding can last a few hours to several days. Bleeding and spotting may continue for several weeks. On average bleeding lasts 9 to 16 days. 8% (1 in 12 women) bleed more than 30 days and 1% (1 in 100 women) require hospitalization for heavy bleeding. The failure rate for a chemical (pill) abortion increases as the pregnancy progresses. If failure occurs a surgical abortion is necessary to remove the dead embryo/fetus.


According to the FDA, the most common side effects of Mifepristone include:

bleeding, cramping, nausea, weakness, fever/chills, vomiting, headache, diarrhea and dizziness.

According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), the most common side effects of Misoprostol (Cytotec) include:

Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, flatulence, constipation, dyspepsia, fever, shivering/chills, headache, breakthrough bleeding, and menstrual irregularity. Less reported mild side effects include syncope, lethargy, weakness, and vertigo.

BLACK BOX WARNING: “Cytotec can cause abortion (sometimes incomplete which could lead to dangerous bleeding and require hospitalization and surgery), premature birth, or birth defects. Cytotec has been reported to cause the uterus to rupture (tear) when given after the eighth week of pregnancy. Rupture (tearing) of the uterus can result in severe bleeding, hysterectomy, and/or maternal or fetal death.”


MISOPROSTOL is a category X drug, meaning it has been shown to cause birth defects and is therefore not recommended for use by pregnant women.


MISOPROSTOL is not approved by the FDA for abortion.
