How to choose the abortion method
Most patients who have an abortion can choose how it will be performed. Your choice will depend on your individual circumstances and how you feel about the different options.
What is the difference between the “day after pill” and the abortion pill?
It’s important to know the difference between the two pills and recognize when you need one or the other and where to find them.
The morning-after pill: emergency contraception
The “day-after pill” is an emergency contraceptive: although it is often referred to as a morning-after pill, it can actually be taken up to 96 hours (5 days) after unprotected sex to prevent pregnancy. It is a hormone pill that contains only progesterone and works by delaying the release of an egg from the ovary, thus preventing pregnancy. All you have to do is take a pill. The sooner you take the morning-after pill, the greater your chances of avoiding pregnancy.
The abortion pill: drug abortion
Drug abortion (or “abortion pill” as it is sometimes called) involves taking two different types of medications, mifepristone and misoprostol, at different times, to terminate an existing pregnancy. In Aragon Medical Center you can use this abortion method up to 9 weeks + 6 days of pregnancy.
