EMERGENCY CONTRACEPTION

Emergency Contraception

Morning After Pill (Plan B)

Before taking the Morning After Pill, you should understand what it is, what it could mean to your health and how it works. Give us a call and one of our staff will be happy to discuss it with you, verify your pregnancy and advise you on your options.

 

What is it?

The Plan B One-Step tablet is supplied as an almost white, round tablet containing 1.5 mg of levonorgestrel. It should be taken as soon as possible after unprotected sex, up to 72 hours.

 

How does it work?

Plan B is believed to act as an emergency contraceptive principally by preventing ovulation or fertilization. In addition, it may inhibit implantation. It is not effective once the process of implantation has begun.

 

Things to consider

  • Emergency contraception is not effective if a woman is already pregnant.
  • Plan B does not protect against HIV infection (AIDS) and other sexually transmitted infections.
  • The most common side effects in the Plan B clinical trial were nausea, abdominal pain, fatigue, headache, and menstrual changes.
  • The manufacturer warns that Plan B is not recommended for routine use as a contraceptive.

RU486/Abortion Pill

Before taking RU486, or Abortion Pill, you should understand what it is, what it could mean to your health and how it works. Give us a call and one of our staff will be happy to discuss it with you, verify if you’re pregnant and advise you on your options.

 

What is it?

RU-486, also known as “the abortion pill,” is actually a combination of two drugs — mifepristone and misoprostol — that cause early abortion. It should not be used if it has been more than 70 days since your last period. It is NOT the same as the “morning after pill.”

 

How does it work?

  • Day 1:
    Three 200 mg tablets (600 mg) of Mifeprex are taken in a single oral dose.
  • Day 3:
    The patient returns to the health care provider two days after ingesting Mifeprex. Unless abortion has occurred and has been confirmed by clinical examination or ultrasound, the patient takes two 200 µg tablets (400 µg) of misoprostol orally.
  • Day 14:
    Patients will return for a follow-up visit approximately 14 days after the administration of Mifeprex. This visit is very important to confirm by clinical examination or ultrasound that a complete termination of pregnancy has occurred.

 

Things to Consider

An RU-486 abortion requires 3 visits to a health care provider.

 

  • Most medical abortions using mifepristone are completed within 2 weeks, but some can take up to 3 or even 4 weeks.
  • Side effects include heavy bleeding, headache, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, and cramping.
  • If this method fails, a surgical abortion will be required.
