You asked: What is RU486?
An abortion using RU- 486 requires three visits to a clinic using at least two drugs. 1 out 12 women who use RU-486 will still be pregnant and require a surgical abortion. This is often referred to as an abortion pill.
The first pill, RU-486(Mifeprex) is given. Bleeding starts for nearly half of women the following day.
Two days after taking RU-486, the patient returns for a dose of Misoprostol (also known as Cytotec). This starts uterine contractions, cramping, and more bleeding. This continues for up to 60 days until the dead baby is expelled.
About 2 weeks later patient returns to make sure the baby has been expelled. In 1 out of 12 the baby is still alive.
If the baby survives RU-486 the clinic will recommend a surgical abortion. RU-486 works by blocking the hormones needed for the baby to survive. The baby then starves to death and detaches. The second drug, Misoprostol, is used to expel the dead baby.
If you have taken RU-486 and regret your choice and want to see if a reversal is possible please call us immediately for a physician referral or go to www.abortionpillreversal.com.
