pill

how the pill works

RU486 is an artificial steroid that interrupts progesterone, a hormone crucial to the early progress of pregnancy (1). By blocking progesterone, the embryo is deprived of nourishment and dies. It detaches from the uterine wall and may be expelled in a similar fashion to a heavy period. Some patients have reported seeing tiny embryo body parts or tissues.

The patient returns to the clinic for a check-up to ensure all tissues have been completely expelled. Another drug may be administered if abortion is not complete or a surgical procedure may be indicated.
