Medical Termination of Pregnancy Pills in Ekklesia
Medical abortion is a doctor’s office or home procedure in which 2 medications (mifepristone – misoprostol) are given to the woman to stop the pregnancy from developing. Mifepristone belongs to the class of medications called progesterone receptor modulators. It works by disrupting the way the hormone progesterone works in the body. Misoprostol belongs to the class of medications called prostaglandins. It works by causing muscle contractions in uterus, relaxation of the opening of the cervix, and shedding of the endometrium.
Most women choose a medical abortion by the use of Termination of Pregnancy Pills in Ekklesia in order to avoid a surgical procedure and are comfortable with a process that may take several days, and a follow-up appointment to the doctor’s office before the abortion is considered to be completed. If a medical abortion does not work (one to two per cent of cases), the woman will need to have a D&C (surgical procedure) to empty the uterus.
In case you do not want to perform a medical abortion, you can as well do the surgical abortion. This is also a very safe procedure, requiring two visits to the doctor’s office.

What is Mifegymiso (Termination of Pregnancy Pills in Ekklesia)?
Mifegymiso, also known as Mifepristone in other places in the world, is a medical abortion drug you take orally. It can be used to end pregnancies of up to 9 weeks. (If you are more than 9 weeks pregnant, you will likely need to investigate other abortion methods:
Mifegymiso is a package that contains two drugs: Mifepristone which stops the pregnancy from continuing, and Misoprostol which expels the pregnancy tissue.
Mifegymiso comes in a box or envelope with one mifepristone tablet, and 4 misoprostol. First you take the one mifepristone tablet. About 24-48 hours later you take the 4 misoprostol tablets by putting them between your cheek and your gums and letting them dissolve. They should dissolve after half an hour.
