The medication abortion option uses a medicine known as mifepristone, commonly known as RU-486 or the abortion pill. For this option, your pregnancy must be between 6 weeks and 11 weeks pregnant based on the dating ultrasound performed in our clinic. The ultrasound usually corresponds with the time since your last normal menstrual period. Some of the medicines used in the medication abortion may cause serious birth defects if the pregnancy continues. In the unlikely case that the medication does not work, you may need to have additional medication or a surgical (aspiration) abortion to end the pregnancy.

In a political attempt to make abortions more expensive and difficult to access, Tennessee state law now requires you to make two visits at least 48 hours apart. Choices is dedicated to helping you get the care and services you need. Your first visit will include counseling by a physician, an ultrasound, and lab work. Your second visit will consist of the receipt of medication. Your second visit will be scheduled when you complete your first visit.
