Hi, I am 7 weeks pregnant confirmed and it is intrauterine. I do know that abortion pills can work up to 10 weeks of pregnancy. But, what I want to understand is, the failure rate for medication abortion after crossing 8 to 9 weeks, as I want to order abortion pill online, and it will take at least a week or so before I can get the medicines.

Will it give me problems to take the drugs all by myself? What precautions and safety tips I must follow?

  • The abortion pill is very effective. For people who are 8 weeks pregnant or less, it works about 98 out of 100 times. From 8-9 weeks pregnant, it works about 96 out of 100 times. From 9-10 weeks, it works 93 out of 100 times.

    The abortion pill usually works, but if it doesn't, you can take more medicine or have an in-clinic abortion to complete the abortion.You may visit https://www.plannedparenthood.org/learn/abortion/the-abortion-pill for more information.
