Online abortion (also called “at-home abortion”) involves ordering the abortion drugs online instead of seeking them from a clinic or reputable pharmacy. 

The FDA advises against seeking the abortion drugs online. These drugs fall outside the US supply chain and aren’t approved by the FDA, which means the FDA can’t guarantee their source, quality, or effectiveness. 

If you’re facing an unplanned pregnancy and considering abortion drugs, it’s critical to know that seeking them online puts your health at risk. 

However, even the abortion drugs that are FDA-approved and attainable from a clinic or pharmacy come with risks—which is why it’s essential to learn all you can before choosing this option.

This article will explore the basics you need to know before seeking abortion drugs. But if you’re looking to learn more about your pregnancy options or want to find free resources, contact Choose Hope Women’s Center to schedule a free, confidential appointment. 

How Do the Abortion Drugs Work?

The abortion drugs are powerful. 

The first drug, mifepristone, is a progesterone blocker. Without progesterone, your uterine lining will loosen and shed, causing the pregnancy to detach and end. 

The second drug, misoprostol, causes your uterus to contract and expel your pregnancy from your uterus and out through your vagina.

How Might I Feel After Taking the Abortion Drugs?

After taking the abortion drugs, you will experience vaginal bleeding and abdominal cramping. 

Some women have reported that the pain they feel after an abortion is unexpectedly excruciating. 

What Are the Risks of the Abortion Drugs? 

The abortion drugs are associated with risks that are rare but can be life-threatening.

One of the primary risks associated with the abortion drugs is an incomplete abortion. This occurs when parts of the terminated pregnancy remain in your uterus, and it can quickly lead to infection, severe abdominal pain, and prolonged bleeding.
