What’s the Difference Between the Abortion Pill and Plan B?

There is some confusion around the abortion pill and plan B - but they are entirely different drugs with different purposes. Plan B is emergency contraception taken as soon as possible after unprotected sex. The abortion pill, on the other hand, works to terminate an existing pregnancy that is up to 70 days along. If you are pregnant and unsure what to do next, here's more information about both to help you on your pregnancy journey.

 What is the Abortion Pill?

Also known as medical abortion, the abortion pill consists of two drugs: mifepristone and misoprostol. They work together to end an early pregnancy for women up to 10 weeks pregnant. To understand if you qualify for the abortion pill, you must confirm your pregnancy and understand how far along you are. Receive a free and confidential pregnancy test and ultrasound to determine if you're eligible.

There are possible risks to the abortion pill, including:
● Incomplete abortion, which may need to be followed by surgical abortion
● An ongoing unwanted pregnancy if the procedure doesn't work
● Heavy and prolonged bleeding
● Infection
● Fever
● Digestive system discomfort

 What is the Plan B?

If you had unprotected sex or used faulty birth control, you may be considering Plan B. Also known as levonorgestrel and the morning-after pill, Plan B is a drug that prevents pregnancy. It's typically taken right after unprotected sex, less than 72 hours after. According to the Mayo Clinic, this emergency contraception helps prevent pregnancy, but it may not work for everyone. 

There are potential side effects to Plan B, including:
● Nausea or vomiting
● Dizziness
● Fatigue
● Headache
● Breast tenderness
● Bleeding between periods or heavier menstrual bleeding
● Lower abdominal pain or cramps
