ARE YOU LOOKING FOR AN ABORTION?

You can get medicine by mail to terminate a pregnancy by contacting AidAccess.org. You do NOT need to be in a state that allows abortion. You do NOT need to be pregnant already in order to obtain pills. You do NOT need to tell a doctor you took them, or inform an emergency room if you have or believe you are having a complication.

About Self-Managed Abortion with Misoprostol

In the first 12 weeks of pregnancy, the World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that people who want to manage their abortion via misoprostol take a total of 12 misoprostol tablets (200 mcg each). These tablets are administered four at a time, under the tongue, and allowed to dissolve for 30 minutes, every three hours. The WHO protocol is summarized in the following steps:

  1. Place four pills (200 micrograms each) under the tongue for 30 minutes while tablets dissolve. Swallow the remnants of the pills after 30 minutes.
  2. After three hours, place four pills (200 micrograms each) under the tongue for 30 minutes while tablets dissolve. Swallow the remnants of the pills after 30 minutes.
  3. After another three hours, place four pills (200 micrograms each) under the tongue for 30 minutes while tablets dissolve. Swallow the remnants of the pills after 30 minutes.

A woman will know the medication is working when she experiences the following side effects: cramps, menstrual bleeding, nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Though rare, complications can occur. Signs of complications include:

  • Heavy bleeding that lasts for more than two hours and soaks more than two sanitary pads per hour
  • Severe pain that does not go away after hours after taking the medications
  • A fever of over 102 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Vaginal discharge that smells bad

The treatment of any complication of abortion is exactly the same as the treatment for complications of a miscarriage. There are no tests that can detect misoprostol, and there is no reason to tell a medical provider that a women has managed her own abortion with pills. To date, there have been at least 20 arrests of women who have ended their own pregnancy outside a medical setting in the United States. A woman, therefore, should not tell medical personnel that she has taken misoprostol or she may be at legal risk.
