What is a Medication Abortion-- the Abortion Pill?

It would be nice if we could take a pill and "magically" not be pregnant, but unfortunately that is not the case. The abortion pill Mifeprex starts the process of a miscarriage, and a second medication called misoprostol, taken 24-48 hours later, causes the uterus to contract and expel the pregnancy.

Both surgical and medical abortions have advantages and disadvantages. You should research which method will work best for your situation. Here's a Helpful Guide to help you decide or go to and read the section, Abortion: Which Method is Right for Me? for a fair, unbiased look at both methods. We also have a paper version in our office. We are available to discuss the pros and cons of each method.

Read our official Medication Abortion Consent.

If you choose the abortion pill you must be about 8 weeks from the first day of your last period (confirmed by ultrasound here) and be able to return to our office for a follow-up.

Dr. Cousins requires that you return to our office for your  check-up to be sure that the abortion is complete. Although this may be less convenient for you, we must work together to make sure the abortion was successful and you are OK. Please let us know if you see any problems returning to our office.

The fee for the medication abortion is the same as the surgical procedure. If you need a surgical intervention or extra visits at our office, you will not have to pay more.

Please call to discuss any questions you may have about either method.
