Self-Manage a Medication Abortion at Home

The most common trusted Source form of medication abortion involves taking a combination of two types of medication. They work together to cause the pregnancy to pass from your uterus like a heavy period or miscarriage. Abortion Clinic Services

Technically, the only thing you need to have a medication abortion is the medication. But several things can be helpful to have on hand.

For example, keeping a phone, phone charger, and emergency contact information nearby can help provide peace of mind and ensure that help is only a phone call away should you need it.

Although it’s perfectly natural to free bleed during this process, doing so can be messy.

You may find it helpful to stock up on menstrual pads or disposable period underwear designed for use with heavy periods. This can help reduce or eliminate time spent changing or washing clothes and linens.

Choose a time — preferably in the morning — when you can rest for a while after taking the medication. The abortion starts when you take the first pill.

Just before or shortly after taking the first medication, put a heavy-duty pad in your underwear. Wear and replace as needed.

You should also expect vaginal bleeding — sometimes heavier than your usual period — as the pregnancy leaves your body. It may also contain clots and tissue. Continue using pads for a few more days to help keep track of your bleeding.

You may experience a “second wave” of heavy bleeding a few days after passing the pregnancy. Cramping may increase, along with bleeding and clotting, particularly around the 4th to 5th day.

Depending on how you’re feeling, having someone rub your back, sitting on the toilet, or taking a shower may help ease any discomfort.

If you’re experiencing heavy bleeding, gently massage the abdominal, uterine, and pelvic areas for about 10 minutes. You can take acetaminophen or ibuprofen, apply a heating pad, and decrease all other physical activity, too.

Give yourself the grace to process any emotions that may come forth.

Feelings of relief, sadness, joy, or depression are common and may be strong due to the hormonal changes that occur after an abortion. Some people find these feelings don’t last very long.

Cramping will decrease as the hours and days go by.

It’s common to pass clots, especially when getting out of bed, during the first 1 to 2 weeks after a medication abortion.

You may find it helpful to wear menstrual pads or period underwear during this time. This can make it easier to tell how much you’re bleeding.

You can switch to tampons or other period products after the heavy bleeding lets up. Spotting or other light bleeding may last up to 4 weeks or more.

Breast or chest tenderness and swelling may also last up to 2 weeks.

A false-positive pregnancy test result can happen up to 4 weeks after having a medication abortion.

This is because your hormone levels are still reflecting your previous pregnancy, and it takes a little time for them to go back to their typical levels.

We recommend taking a pregnancy test about 2 weeks after taking all medications or passing the pregnancy. Take note of the date and the result received, then take another pregnancy test the following week.

If the results of the first and second tests are negative, the abortion likely worked as intended.

If the results of the first and second tests are different (i.e., one is positive and one is negative), you may need to take a third test the following week or consult with a doctor or other healthcare professional.

If the results of the first and second tests are positive, a surgical abortion may be needed to help terminate the pregnancy. Abortion Clinic Services
