Mifepristone + Misoprostol: Abortion Timeline


Abortion Timelines

There are two separate Abortion Timelines. One for an abortion with mifepristone + misoprostol, and the other for misoprostol-alone.

Please download your Timeline now. 

Depending on where you are in the world, and if mifepristone is legal and easily available, you may be having a misoprostol-only abortion. 

Please be sure which set of pills you have before downloading your timeline. The way that one takes pills is different depending on if you have mifepristone or not. 

With the Abortion Timeline, you can: 

  • Plan the number of hours and the times that you take pills (this is important, and actually is easy to misplace or forget)
  • Note the details of your bleeding: how often you bleed, how much, and what consistency (this is important in case of medical emergency later)
  • The bleeding could last for up to two weeks and may go on longer depending on if your uterus is still cleaning itself. If bleeding persists up to four weeks and you are bleeding more than in the first week, you need to seek medical attention. 

Taking notes of your full experience will help you to better understand your body’s process and effectively assess if the procedure is complete or not at the end.

You can also decide to share your story and experience later to help others who are also going through the process know what is normal or not.
