what happens if you take an abortion pill when not pregnant?
Life can be tough sometimes. And some of the toughest times for women include pregnancy as not all women are ready for the responsibility, risk, or change that it brings. If you are not planning on conceiving, missed periods can be your biggest woes.
Have missed your periods? Do you think you might be pregnant? The first thing you should do is take a pregnancy test. Or rather, take a couple of pregnancy tests. (To eradicate the chances of false positives and negatives.)
If your test comes positive and you do not want to continue with the conception, your best option would be to visit an abortion clinic.
Visiting a medical practitioner would ensure that you get the right solution for pregnancy termination. Trying to administer pills yourself or taking other extreme measures is not recommended.
But, what if, in the heat of the moment, you take an abortion pill yourself? And what if you are not really pregnant? Will it cause any side effects? Would it affect future pregnancies? Would it be harmful to your psychological and mental health?
Is it harmful if you take abortion pills if you are not pregnant?
No. Taking an abortion pill will cause no harmful effect on your body. It has no effect on future pregnancies. And no direct effect on your mental or psychological health. However, you may still experience common side effects of the pill. These include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, and low-grade fever.
To prevent such a situation, it is better that you visit us at Her Smart Choice and make a wise decision. We are here to educate, inform and help you make a smart choice.
When you visit one of our facilities, we leave no chance for any doubts.
If you are pregnant and would not like to continue with the conception, we can offer you several viable options. Options that are much safer than taking an abortion pill on your own. Here at Her Smart Choice, we offer you the choice of medication abortion and abortion via telehealth (phone).
The medication abortion involves abortion pills (mifepristone and misoprostol). This is the preferred method for pregnancies less than 10 weeks old. The two pills perform different functions. The experts at our facility can help administer the right dosage at the right time for the right and risk-free results.
Mifepristone blocks the progesterone receptors. This prevents progesterone from continuing the pregnancy. 24 or 48 hours after the first pill, misoprostol is given to expel the pregnancy. You might also start bleeding before you take the second pill.
When you are undergoing medication abortion, you need proper guidance and support. Both of these can be offered to you at our private abortion clinic. Feel free to contact us here to make an appointment.
We believe your right to be able to choose. It is your body, your life and so should be your choice.
While taking a pill while not pregnant would cause no major harm, we can help you better. With counseling, care, and confidential treatment, make the smart choice with Her Smart Choice.
