At Women's Care Center
in Torrance, California
, we offer non-surgical medical abortions
. This safe procedure is an alternative to traditional surgical procedures. In addition, our clinic also provides free antibiotics as part of the treatment plans, as well as a two-week follow-up appointment.
The Abortion Pill, also known by its trade name Mifiprex (Mifepristone) and also commonly referred to as RU-486, is prescribed to terminate pregnancy up to 49 days after the beginning of the latest menstruation (as recommended by the manufacturer). There is approximately a 99% success rate.
Our physician will review your medical history and an ultrasound will confirm that the pregnancy is early enough on to perform this procedure. You will be informed of any risks or benefits during your visit, and any question you have will be addressed at this time.
The first dose of Mifiprex/Mifepristone is administered in the office, and taken orally. The second dose (Misoprostol) is given to the patient with instructions to take home with them. [Mifepristone can also be administered in smaller doses and used as an Emergency Contraceptive]. In addition, our clinic also provides free antibiotics as part of the treatment plans. A 2 week follow-up appointment is included in the cost as well.
