After verifying that a patient is pregnant and that the fetus is not lodged in the fallopian tubes, the doctor prescribes mifepristone, Planned Parenthood explains. Mifepristone blocks the hormone progesterone, without which the uterus lining breaks down. This prevents the mother’s body from nourishing the fetus, effectively ending the pregnancy. From one to three days after taking the mifepristone, the doctor prescribes misoprostol, which causes the uterus to shed its lining and empty. During this process, patients often experience strong cramping and excessive bleeding. The uterus empties within four or five hours for most patients, but it can take several days for some women. The nationwide average cost for the medication abortion is between $300 and $800.
