Progesterone, also called courpus luteum hormone is essential for the normal development of a pregnancy. Mifepristone is a drug which inhibits the function of progesterone selectively. By taking Mifepristone a pregnancy is terminated, similarly to an early spontaneous abortion. Another hormone, prostaglandin, has to be taken two days after Mifepristone to assure expulsion of the gestational sac. If the patient wishes to see the expulsed gestational sac they have to take a close look into their pads or into the lavator
How does the medical abortion work?
Taking Mifegyne Mifepristone and a prostaglandin is a very safe and effective method which leads to a successful abortion in 98% of cases. Taking the prostaglandin may cause menstrual disorders like cramping in the lower abdomen; a pain treatment might therefore be necessary similarly to what is recommended in case of painful menstruation (ibuprofen, Diclofenac). You will take the prostaglandin tablets at home and therefore you should have enough painkillers on hand.
In Austria and most other European countries this method is approved up to the 9th week of pregnancy
(weeks are counted from the first day of the last menstrual bleeding).
The medical abortion with Mifegyne takes a couple of days. It allows you to keep control over your body and to experience the treatment. Therefore you may be able to review misconceptions about the process.
