Medical Process: This process is used to terminate a pregnancy below 9 weeks, by taking a set of orally administered pills that work together. The first set of pills, “the abortion pill” (mifepristone) functions in stopping the ovaries from producing progesterone hormone & is taken at the facility. The second set of pills (misoprostol) is to be taken between 6 – 48 hours after the first set of pills, which will cause cramping and bleeding & therefore emptying of the uterus.
Termination of Pregnancy (TOP) Process: The TOP process is a same-day surgical process performed at the clinic, by a professional and trained nurse. The process involves the physical removal of pregnancy counterparts through the suction method.
