Since there are some serious side effects to the abortion pill, please discuss these and any other concerns with a medical professional before the abortion. In addition to the side effects listed above, other risks can include an incomplete or failed abortion (where the fetus is viable or remains in the womb which can cause serious infections), an undetected ectopic pregnancy (which can be dangerous and is a medical emergency), and blood clots remaining in the uterus.
