Medical/Non-Surgical/Chemical or Instrument-Free Abortion - Methotrexate
Methotrexate gives women the opportunity to have a termination performed as early as a week prior to missing menses up to 9 weeks from the last menstrual period. Methotrexate is not only used to stop the growth of pregnancy tissue, but it is used to treat different cancers, rheumatoid arthritis, and other chronic diseases. It is also used to treat patients with ectopic (tubal) pregnancies which are pregnancies that implant outside of the uterus. Methotrexate stops the rapidly growing embryonic and placental cells of early pregnancy from further developing.
Methotrexate used alone can cause miscarriage in 90 to 99% of patients that use it up to 6 weeks gestation. It generally takes 3 to 4 weeks to begin having spontaneous bleeding and for the miscarriage to occur. Giving the Cytotec (Misoprostol) approximately 48 to 72 hours after taking the Methotrexate by mouth or injection has a success rate of close to 100% for patients who are 6 weeks or less pregnant and 92 to 94% for patients up to 9 weeks pregnant. The Cytotec causes uterine contractions and leads to bleeding similar to a normal or slightly heavier period in most women. Women who do not want surgery and want their abortion experience to be more private and have the support of spouse, family member, or friend, find this method to be most comfortable.
Methotrexate is extremely safe and effective in terminating pregnancies less than 9 weeks gestation. We have used it in our offices for over 14 years and it has been used around the world for over 25 years in performing medical abortions. Contraindications to use of Methotrexate is prolonged exposure to the sun, and allergy to Methotrexate. Please see general contraindications to having the medical abortion procedure performed.
