Abortion Pill versus Morning After Pill

Did you know that the abortion pill and the morning after pill are not the same? Below, we will explain the difference between the two. You will know how they work.

Morning after Pill

What is the difference?

The morning after pill, or “Plan B,” is a large dose of oral contraceptive. You can purchase it over-the-counter at many drug or convenient stores.

If you have been having unprotected sex or had contraceptive failure, Plan B can be taken up to 72 hours after sexual intercourse. Plan B acts an emergency contraceptive by preventing fertilization.

In addition, it may inhibit implantation, which causes the fetus to develop. If you are already pregnant and the fertilized egg has already been implanted in the uterus, Plan B will not have any effect on the pregnancy. 

Often Plan B or morning after fails. This medication fails very often. So after taking taste for pregnancy a week to 10 days after. Testing is easy as supermarkets a full of testing kits. The best pregnancy testing kit to get is called Clearblue. It prints results of the test on the screen.

Abortion Pill

On the other hand, RU-486, often called the abortion pill, is a series of two pills that terminate an existing pregnancy.

The two pills, mifepristone and misoprostol, work together to end and expel a pregnancy from a woman’s body.

The first pill, mifepristone, is given to you in the doctor’s office or clinic. This blocks a woman’s hormone in the body needed to develop a fetus during pregnancy.

The second pill, misoprostol, will be taken approximately one to two days later and will induce a miscarriage.

Misoprostol will cause severe cramping and heavy bleeding as the body expels the contents of the uterus. This is similar to a miscarriage.

Misoprostol can also work on its own without mifepristone.

Things to consider:

  • Emergency contraception is not effective if a woman is already pregnant.
