Hi Raj4u,



In My opinion, ANY invasive procedure, wether it be medical or chemical is going to have possbile consequences.



I will be honest with you, I dont believe in abortion, except in the case of a tubal pregnancy where the woman is TRULY at risk. No judgement intended ok?



However, I DO research MANY pro-life and pro-decision websites to try and "glean" some insight. HONESTLY... ru486 has what some say as "positives", negatives, and fatal effects. The pill Methotrexate is sometimes used in abortion. This pill IS PRIMARILY a cancer drug. You know, Carifairy is a good person to ask also about these pills as I am not certain about the "jist" of them for abortion.



I work in a pharmacy, and I know about the drug Methotrexate used in cancer.



Anyway, Here is a bit of info from a website I visited to try and get information from both "sides of the coin". What they say makes sense. Use your best judgement....and dont hastily make a decision that could 1) tear your lives apart OR 2) Possibly not have effects on either of you.



Be careful with sex and use common sense.



Feds Strengthen Warnings on Abortion Drug









November 16, 2004

Federal regulators are strengthening health warnings on the "morning-after" drug RU486, following the third death since the drug was approved in 2000.



A California woman died in January after a bacterial infection in her uterus spread to her blood, leading to sepsis, or blood poisoning, Lester Crawford, the Food and Drug Administration's acting commissioner, said.



The new warnings remind physicians to watch their patients carefully for signs of systemic bacterial infection, excessive vaginal bleeding and ectopic, or tubal, pregnancies.



Anti-abortion advocates say that the latest death demonstrates that RU486, also known as mifepristone, is unsafe and should be withdrawn from the market. Abortion rights advocates say that mifepristone has been used by nearly 360,000 women in the United States, and they argue that bad outcomes with the pill are exceptionally rare.



The latest death is similar to that of Holly Patterson, who died from sepsis after taking mifepristone Sept. 17, 2003, less than a month after her 18th birthday. Her father, Monty Patterson, became an outspoken critic of the pill.



Not everyone agrees RU486 is to blame for the latest death. Dr. Cynthia Summers, spokeswoman for Danco Laboratories, mifepristone's maker, said that she does not believe that the latest death should be attributed to mifepristone.



She said the coroner's report found that the California woman had taken methotrexate, a cancer drug that has also been used to induce abortions.



The drug already carries a black box label, identifying it as potentially dangerous. Now the FDA and the drug company have agreed to strengthen the warning, because of reports of serious bacterial infection, bleeding, ectopic pregnancies that have ruptured, and death.



The new warnings to health care providers and consumers include changes to the existing black box on the product to add new information about these risks, including that death that may occur following any termination of pregnancy, including those terminated by RU486. While these risks are rare, the FDA says the new labeling and Medication Guide will provide the latest available information to all.



The new information also reminds health care providers that serious bacterial infection and sepsis may occur without the usual signs of infection, such as fever and tenderness on examination. The FDA said health care providers should be aware that prolonged, heavy bleeding may warrant surgical interventions.



The label also warns that health care providers should be vigilant for patients with undiagnosed ectopic pregnancies (tubal pregancies) as this condition may be missed by physicial examination and ultrasound. Some of the symptoms of an ectopic pregnancy may mimic the expected symptoms of a medical termination of pregnancy.



For consumers, the FDA Medication Guide states they should contact their health care provider right away for fever, abdominal pain, and heavy bleeding. Also, consumers are advised to take their Medication Guide to the emergency room or any health care provider they visit for problems. This allows health care providers to understand that the patient is undergoing a termination of pregnancy, and assess risks associated with that condition.



The revised labeling will provide physicians and patients with important information so that they can respond and possibly prevent rare but serious complications that may occur with any abortion. FDA said it will continue to monitor the usage of Mifeprex/RU486 and may take further action.





The Food and Drug Administration has announced new safety changes to the Danco Laboratories, LLC's labeling of RU-486, the so-called "abortion pill." The drug, also known as Mifeprex was approved in 2000 for the termination of early pregnancy, defined as 49 days or less.

HIZGRACE-

RU 486 has never been known as a MORNING AFTER drug.

RU 486 and the 'morning after pill" are two totally different things.

I would suspect you got that article from a Pro life site?

It is NOT RU 486 that is in question. It is the VAGINAL USE of Cytotec, which induces the second part of the medical abortion process. This causes bacteria to be introduced into the uterus...

Ru 486 is swallowed, and in now way causes infections in the uterus.



IF your girlfriend wants a Medicine abortion, you need to go to an abortion provider to get this.

Hi Carifairy,



Actually, this was not a pro-life site. In the beginning of the post question, he had asked about ru486, and the article mentioned methotrexate, which I commented on.



I also found this on an fda website.

Cytotec®

(misoprostol)

WARNINGS

CYTOTEC (MISOPROSTOL) ADMINISTRATION TO WOMEN WHO ARE PREGNANT CAN CAUSE ABORTION, PREMATURE

BIRTH, OR BIRTH DEFECTS. UTERINE RUPTURE HAS BEEN REPORTED WHEN CYTOTEC WAS ADMINISTERED IN

PREGNANT WOMEN TO INDUCE LABOR OR TO INDUCE ABORTION BEYOND THE EIGHTH WEEK OF PREGNANCY (see

also PRECAUTIONS, and LABOR AND DELIVERY). CYTOTEC SHOULD NOT BE TAKEN BY PREGNANT WOMEN TO

REDUCE THE RISK OF ULCERS INDUCED BY NON-STEROIDAL ANTI-INFLAMMATORY DRUGS (NSAIDS) (See

CONTRAINDICATIONS, WARNINGS and PRECAUTIONS).

PATIENTS MUST BE ADVISED OF THE ABORTIFACIENT PROPERTY AND WARNED NOT TO

Cytotec should not be used for reducing the risk of NSAID-induced ulcers in women of childbearing

potential unless the patient is at high risk of complications from gastric ulcers associated with use of the

NSAID, or is at high risk of developing gastric ulceration. In such patients, Cytotec may be prescribed if

the patient

· has had a negative serum pregnancy test within 2 weeks prior to beginning therapy.

· is capable of complying with effective contraceptive measures.

· has received both oral and written warnings of the hazards of misoprostol, the risk of possible

contraception failure, and the danger to other women of childbearing potential should the drug be

taken by mistake.

· will begin Cytotec only on the second or third day of the next normal menstrual period



Blessings to you Carifairy,
