Every pregnancy is different, just as every decision that leads to abortion is different. Due to diverse private reasons, many women choose to abort. These reasons may include pregnancies resulting from sexual violence, lack of financial stability, health problems (mental/physical), failed birth control/emergency contraceptives to personal lifestyle choices. Each and every woman in these situations should be able to get a pregnancy termination on demand. That is why, women’s rights groups fight to make access to abortion pills and services easier.
Due to restrictive laws, many women around the world run the risk of getting termination from unguaranteed services that might be detrimental to their health. Due to unavailability of necessary medication, many pro-choice and women’s choice groups set up websites where those bereft of choice can buy abortion pills online. Sometimes these packages are sent through ships or drones, all the while keeping in mind of legal loopholes. The process and cost however becomes an essential topic while discussing pregnancy cancellation options.
The medical abortion includes administration of one tablet of mifepristone on day one. This tablet is of 200 mg dosage. There is generally no effect of Mifepristone, other than light bleeding which is why keeping a stack of sanitary pads in store during the process is important. If one decides to buy abortion pills online, they must check the validity of their source and only trust authorized online pharmacies.
After a mandatory wait of 24-72 hours after taking Mifepristone, a secondary drug known as Misoprostol is given. This drug is given in 800 mcg total that includes four tablets of 200 mcg each. You may expect to bleed and cramp as a result of taking misoprostol. Other side effects include vomiting, nausea, diarrhea, weakness etc.
If the woman has failed to take termination drugs on time, she may have to consider surgical procedure. This process can be done if women have passed the duration of gestation where medically induced termination is possible, that is 10 weeks. Also called as ‘Aspiration abortion or suction procedure’, this procedure is also a safe way of terminating.
During this procedure, the doctor sedates the women’s reproductive area and inserts a tube into her vagina. After that he applies gentle pressure and through suction removes the conception tissues from the body.
How much does it costs?
Several abortive services that offer surgical procedures only offer abortions that are within 24 weeks of pregnancy. As the gestation period increases, it gets more complicated to abort. In the US, it costs up to USD 1,500 for first trimesters and pregnancy cancellation pills can range up to USD 800, although if you buy abortion pills online, they cost way less ranging from USD 200-USD 400. In the UK, you may find pills ranging from £464, consultation fees excluded. With surgical procedure and more gestation period, a general procedure in the UK can be up to £707 and more, also excluding counseling fees.
