The Abortion Pill consists of two different medications taken 24 hours apart. The first, Mifeprex, will block the hormone that the pregnancy needs to grow. Most people don’t have any symptoms after taking this first medication, even though it is extremely important for the process to work. The second medication, Misoprostol, will interact with the uterus to bring about the cramps that will expel the pregnancy. The process is identical to a natural miscarriage, which means you will experience cramping pain followed by bleeding and passage of blood clots. The severity will depend on the age of the pregnancy; the earlier it is the less the cramping and bleeding that’s experienced. The pregnancy will be expelled along with the blood clots.
Is The Abortion Pill Invasive?
The good part about the medication is that it is not invasive, and no surgical procedure will usually be necessary. We want to avoid anything that places instruments inside the body if possible. The best practice in medicine is to approach treatment with the least amount of invasion into the body, and therefore have the least risk. A surgical procedure should really only be performed if you are too far along for the pill to work, or in case the pill has already been taken and failed, which is very rare.
Does The Pill Give Me More Control?
Yes, and when you are already in a situation that seems to be out of control, regaining some of that control is very empowering and allows you to better deal with everything. We strongly believe that giving control back to women is very helpful to allow them to have a more positive experience. Things are already difficult for you because of circumstance. We want to do our best to make it less difficult. Every little bit of power and control we give back to you takes more burden off from you and will hopefully lighten your heart a bit.
Does the Medical Pill Allow Me More Privacy?
Yes, the Abortion Pill allows the termination to take place in the privacy of your home, in a place and time of your choosing. The privacy of your home is a place of comfort, and relieves the stress of being surrounded by strangers.

What Makes You Different From Planned Parenthood or the Other Abortion Chain Clinics?
There’s nothing wrong with the Chain Abortion Clinics like Planned Parenthood. However, we have a different philosophy to offering our family planning services. We are not a chain, and in fact we are at one single location in Santa Ana. We don’t like treating our patients like an assembly line, and instead prefer to give you more personalized care. We feel it makes a big difference in the experience to not feel like a number in a chain. Also, we don’t use Physician Assistants or Certified Nurses as your primary caregivers. Our staff physician, Dr Nasseri is a highly experienced Board Certified Obstetrician and Gynecologist in practice for over 20 years, and specializes in family planning and abortion services. You will be guaranteed to receive your services from Dr Nasseri personally, including the performance of the ultrasound, and not from a mid level provider that may not be as experienced. The quality of your caregiver and physician really does matter.
