  What would be the side effects if someone took the ru 486 abortion pill and they weren''t pregnant to begin with?

A: Hi. ru 486 is a progesterone receptor antagonist. Progesterone helps form the normal endothelial lining of theuterus in pregnancy. A sudden withdrawal in the hormone (simulated by receptor antagonists), would lead todisruption in the endothelial lining of the uterus and cause induced menstruation. This principle is also usedfor abortion as the fertilized egg is unable to get attached to the uterus. In the absence of progesterone,mifepristone acts as a partial agonist. Hence in either case it would just lead to an induced menstruation,nothing serious would happen as such. A severe bleeding...

bleeding after abortion pill, ru 486

A: Dear Jancy, The bleeding you are describing after taking the abortion pill (ru 486) seems lengthy, and you should probably get a check up by the doctor who gave it to you.  Long term bleeding after the abortion pill is the most common complaint of women who try this method.  Intermittent bleeding, including clots, dark blood, red blood, spotting, heavy bleeding - is all normal, and can last for 1-2 months after taking the abortion pill.  However, there are a few things that concern me about what you are describing - first, that you have had daily bleeding, not intermittent bleeding.  Second, you are having some weakness, which can indicate a low blood count.  Both of these symptoms indicate that you should see a...

Some women feel more comfortable with this method because the experience is more like an early miscarriage. I hope this is helpful, Doctor Joan http://www.earlyabortionoptions.com New York City...
