Early Abortion Option "B"
A decision to have an abortion may
seem complicated, but choosing an abortion procedure does not have to
be. Surgical abortions are far more expensive and certain complications
such as uterus perforations and infections are a risk. For women who
feel anxious in a surgical setting, and want to receive more private
care, this treatment is a more viable option. This NAF protocol
treatment is 95% effective. To receive this medical treatment an office
visit is required to fill out personal and medical history forms. This
treatment is similar to a protocol adopted by the National Abortion
Federation and is available after confirmation of IUP (intrauterine
pregnancy) of at least 6 weeks and a maximum of about 11 weeks confirmed
by sonographic revelation, documented by a picture. Undesired
pregnancies from 6 weeks to about 11 weeks can now be terminated with a
medical treatment consisting of two parts. This entails taking 400 mg of
Misoprostol by mouth (inserted into cheeks) and 800mg vaginally in a
single visit. Misoprostol is a prostaglandin that helps contract the
uterus to induce menstrual period-like bleeding. In normal volunteers,
Misoprostol is rapidly absorbed after oral administration with a T-max
of Misoprostol acid of 12 Â± 3 minutes and a terminal half-life of 20 to
40 minutes. There are no long-term effects of this treatment.
Why the Misoprostol combination treatment?
addition to privacy, simplicity and its success rate, this treatment is
safe and is widely used to replace surgical abortions provided in
unregulated Abortion clinics. This treatment has now become the number
one choice for women all over the world for terminating their unwanted
pregnancy at a low cost. Misoprostol is used in inducing labor for
full-term deliveries and feels less invasive than a surgical abortion.
It has little to no side effects and does not have an effect on future
As this is not defined as an abortion procedure but an abortion
treatment, it can be done any day of the week in the office or in the
privacy of your own home. Appointments are available within 24 hours of
your call at even the most desired days and times.
of Appointment: You will be greeted in our newly renovated office by
qualified, friendly staff. Our staff will administer forms to provide
information about your personal and medical history. Once you complete
all required forms, you will be accompanied to an exam room where the
medical assistant will chart your vital signs and perform two blood
tests to get the value of your hemoglobin levels (must be above 10).
They will then determine your Rh blood type (positive or negative) and
conduct a vaginal sonogram to discuss the results with the doctor or
Once the MA
receives the approval to start the treatment, the MA will once again go
over with your available choices. When you elect to terminate this
pregnancy through abortion by pills, she will give you 2 pills of
Misoprostol to put in each cheek and let it dissolve ( if you can not
hold these in cheeks, she may give you water to take them by mouth). A
few minutes later she will help you intern 4 Misoprostol pills in the
vagina with the lip of a pill inserted in a specific way. To ensure the
medication stays deep under the uterus to be effective, you will stay in
lying position for 20 to 25 minutes. At this point, you will feel the
effects of treatment may start bleeding but in some cases, it can take
up to 72 hours.
What To Expect:
bleeding can start within 72 hours of taking this treatment. Cramping
pain can range from pain similar to period cramping to moderate pain.
Misoprostol works with prostaglandin, Misoprostol to contract your
uterus. Taking any pain medication that works against induction of
contraction will result in failure of the treatment, especially smoking
substances such as marijuana. A heating pad or shower generally helps to
ease the pain.
treatment to end a pregnancy using Misoprostol works by contracting
your uterus. Until a day into a heavy period like bleeding, you are
required not to take any muscle relaxants, magnesium or green leafy
vegetables. Do not drink red wine or any other alcoholic substances
during the first week. Use pads only (no tampons) to avoid the risk of
infection. To further prevent infection, do not swim or take baths,
however, you may shower.
