Putting pills under tongue is called sublingual. The medication enters the blood system through the vessels found under the tongue. This makes the medication work very effectively.
You can use this method when taking Misoprostol and you will be perfectly fine.
Abortion pills can also be pushed inside the vagina. You push the Misoprostol tablets one at a time up into the vagina as far as you can using your longest finger. Lie down on your back for 30 minutes to 1 hour to allow the pills dissolve and enter your blood stream. Sometimes the tablets come out when your bleeding starts or if you are up and about.
This abortion method is done using tools. It is expensive. It is performed by a doctor and nurses. The actual method employed depends on the duration of your pregnancy.
Early surgical termination is done with vacuum aspiration. A fetus is not full formed and what you have is pregnancy tissue. This pregnancy tissue is sucked from the uterus using an abortion unit.
Vacuum or suction aspiration uses aspiration to remove uterine contents through the cervix. That is the abortion process.
You will be put under local or general anesthesia. The procedure is quite quick. You may or may not bleed. But you are able to go home after the procedure.
