Pregnancy, unfortunately, is not always good news for a woman. According to statistics, about a quarter of all pregnancies in Ukraine are unplanned. Currently, medical abortion is the safest method of terminating pregnancy up to 9 weeks (63 days), which is based on taking drugs that prevent its normal development. Medical abortion is usually a multi-step process. At the first stage, a woman takes a pill that blocks the production of a hormone necessary for the continuation of pregnancy.
