How do I get Mifeprex*?

A more private option for safely ending early pregnancy.

Available only from a doctor's office, clinic, or hospital, Mifeprex can be taken from the time a woman knows she is pregnant up to seven weeks after the beginning of her last menstrual period. You may want to ask your physician if s/he offers Mifeprex, as many OB/GYNs and family physicians are providing Mifeprex to their patients.

You can also call the National Abortion Federation (NAF) hot line, 1-800-772-9100, for a list of health care providers who provide Mifeprex or visit NAF's web site at www.prochoice.org.

Many Planned Parenthood health centers also offer Mifeprex for early pregnancy termination. If you would like to find out if the Planned Parenthood clinic near you offers the early option pill, call toll-free 1-800-230-PLAN or visit PPFA's web site: www.plannedparenthood.org.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

Although cramping and bleeding are an expected part of ending a pregnancy, rarely, serious and potentially life-threatening bleeding, infections, or other problems can occur following a miscarriage, surgical abortion, medical abortion, or childbirth. Prompt medical attention is needed in these circumstances. Serious infection has resulted in death in a very small number of cases; in most of these cases misoprostol was used in the vagina. There is no information that use of Mifeprex and misoprostol caused these deaths. If you have any questions, concerns, or problems, or if you are worried about any side effects or symptoms, you should contact your provider.

Be sure to contact your provider promptly if you have any of the following:

Heavy Bleeding. Contact your provider right away if you bleed enough to soak through two thick full-size sanitary pads per hour for two consecutive hours or if you are concerned about heavy bleeding. In about 1 out of 100 women, bleeding can be so heavy that it requires a surgical procedure (surgical abortion/D&C) to stop it.

Abdominal Pain or “Feeling Sick”. If you have abdominal pain or discomfort, or you are “feeling sick”, including weakness, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea, with or without fever, more than 24 hours after taking misoprostol, you should contact your provider without delay. These symptoms may be a sign of a serious infection or another problem (including an ectopic pregnancy, a pregnancy outside the womb).

Fever. In the days after treatment, if you have a fever of 100.4°F or higher that lasts for more than 4 hours, you should contact your provider right away. Fever may be a symptom of a serious infection or another problem (including an ectopic pregnancy).

Take your MEDICATION GUIDE with you. When you visit an emergency room or a provider who did not give you your Mifeprex, you should give them your MEDICATION GUIDE so that they understand that you are having a medical abortion with Mifeprex.
