If you are facing an unplanned pregnancy, ordering the abortion pill online may seem like a quick and simple solution–but there are side effects and risks to your health that you should be aware of before you make any decision.
What is the Abortion Pill?
The medical treatment that is commonly referred to as the “abortion pill” is actually two medicines you take to complete a medical abortion: mifepristone and misoprostol. These two pills are taken at different times of the procedure to end a pregnancy.
The two drugs can cause risks to your health, including:
- Incomplete abortion, which may need to be followed by surgical abortion
- An ongoing unwanted pregnancy if the procedure doesn’t work
- Heavy and prolonged bleeding
- Digestive system discomfort
The health risks of taking an abortion pill are even higher if the abortion pill is taken too late in your pregnancy or the incorrect dosage is used.
Risks to Ordering Abortion Pill Online
While it might seem easy to order the abortion pill online there are many risks to your health that can occur.
First, when ordering the abortion pill online you can not guarantee the quality of the medicine or that it is in the proper dosage recommended by the FDA. Using an incorrect dosage can significantly increase the chance of risks to your health.
Most importantly though–getting an abortion by using the pill is a medical procedure that requires the supervision of medical professionals to ensure that not only is the proper dosage used but that the procedure is used at the proper time.
The abortion pill only works when a pregnancy is in its early stages: 10 weeks or less. If you try to use the abortion pill after 10 weeks there are serious risks to your health that can develop.
The pill will also not work if you have an ectopic pregnancy–which occurs when the pregnancy is located incorrectly in your body. An ectopic pregnancy is a serious health condition that requires immediate medical attention to ensure you are kept safe.
That is why it is important to consult a doctor or medical professional if you are pregnant and considering using the abortion pill.
