The Medical Option for Early Abortion
Medical Abortion in New Jersey
A medical abortion is an alternative to surgical abortion for some women. The procedure involves medication called Mifeprex or Mifepristone in combination with Misoprostol to terminate an early pregnancy without surgery.
The abortion pill, also known as RU486, may be offered to women up to 12 weeks of gestation. The process involves a transvaginal ultrasound to determine length of pregnancy, lab work and counseling to ensure that the woman understands the process fully.
This option is suitable for many women who prefer the privacy and convenience it affords them as well as avoiding the risks of surgery and anesthesia.
