Have questions?

How does medication abortion work?

Medication abortion is a safe and effective way to end an early pregnancy. In general, it can be used up to 11 weeks of pregnancy. Using standard protocols, it has a success rate of more than 95%. Medication abortion is sometimes called ‘the abortion pill,’ but it’s actually two different medicines that are taken to end a pregnancy.

The first medicine is called mifepristone. This is a pill that blocks the hormone progesterone. This stops the pregnancy from growing. The second medicine is called misoprostol. Misoprostol can be taken in different ways. Your doctor or nurse will review these options and all instructions with you.

We’ll check in with you within one week of taking the medicines. Four weeks after you take the medicines, we’ll check in again and give you instructions for taking a pregnancy test, which comes in your kit. And we’ll be here every step of the way if you have any questions or concerns.

Is this safe?

All types of abortion are considered very safe. Medication abortion has been used for many years in the US and around the world. Like with most medical treatments there can be some risks. Complications are rare, but can happen. Serious complications happen in less than 0.4% of patients. Some of the possible complications of medication abortion are:

    • Risk that the medicines don’t work to end the pregnancy. This could mean needing to take more medicines or needing to go to a clinic for an abortion procedure
    • Bleeding more than expected
    • Infection
    • Blood clots
    • Having an allergic reaction to one of the medicines
    • Death (extremely rare)

Remember, we’ll be with you every step of the way for questions or concerns.

What’s the difference between a getting a medication abortion through Sunny and getting one in a clinic?

The medicines given for medication abortion with Sunny are the same medicines given for a medication abortion in a clinic. With Sunny, if you are medically eligible, you can have your medication abortion at home without needing to schedule an appointment or travel anywhere in person. In a clinic, you may have the option of having an ultrasound before the abortion. For most people, special testing or an ultrasound is not needed before a medication abortion.

What can I expect during and after taking the medication?

Once you receive your package, you can start the medicines in the privacy of your home or the location of your choice. Here are the steps you will follow:

    • First you’ll take the mifepristone pill
    • Next, you’ll generally wait between 24 to 48 hours before taking the misoprostol.
    • Then, you’ll take the misoprostol. Misoprostol can be taken 1) placed between the cheek and gum; 2)under the tongue; or 3) placed in the vagina.
    • Your doctor or nurse will give you more information about the different ways that misoprostol can be used.
    • If you are more than 9 weeks pregnant, you’ll repeat a second dose of misoprostol after 4 hours.
    • We’ll check in with you within 1 week of taking the medicines.
    • 4 weeks after taking the medicines, you’ll take a pregnancy test and we’ll check in with you again.
    • If at any point before, during, or after your abortion we recommend that you seek in-person care, we’ll let you know and help you figure out how to get care.

After taking the misoprostol, most people will have bleeding and cramping. The heaviest bleeding usually happens 2-5 hours after using misoprostol and usually slows within 24 hours. But some people bleed heavier for longer than that. Bleeding may be heavier than a regular period and you may see some blood clots. For cramping, pain medicines like ibuprofen or tylenol can help. A heating pad can also help. Cramping will gradually improve over hours to a day.

Some people get fever, chills, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea or flu-like symptoms after taking misoprostol. These should go away within 6 hours of using the misoprostol. Ibuprofen can help. You may feel a bit tired for a day or 2, but this should get better soon.

If you feel ill, have belly pain, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea, or have a fever >100.4 more than 24 hours after using misoprostol, please contact us or seek medical care right away

Please contact us or seek medical attention right away if you soak through 2 maxi pads per hour for at least 2 hours in a row.

How will I know if it worked?

After taking the misoprostol (the second medicine) you should have cramping and bleeding within 24 hours. Contact us if you don’t bleed after using misoprostol.

Most pregnancy symptoms like nausea and vomiting should also start to go away within a few days. Breast tenderness can last longer, up to 7 to 10 days. If you still feel like you are pregnant a week after taking the medicines, please contact us.

4 weeks after taking the medicines, we’ll ask you to take a pregnancy test (included in your kit) and we’ll check in with you. It’s important to know that pregnancy tests can stay positive for about 4 weeks after an abortion. So it’s important not to take one early.

In the rare case that the medicines did not work to end the pregnancy, we will help you with next steps.

What are my options if I’m pregnant?

Deciding what to do about an unplanned pregnancy is a very personal decision. There are three options:

    • Parenting: You may decide to continue with the pregnancy, give birth, and raise the child.
    • Adoption: You may decide to continue with the pregnancy, give birth, and place the child with another individual or family.
    • Abortion: You may decide to end the pregnancy by either taking medications or having a procedure in a clinic.

You may already know what you would like to do. If you are not sure, talking with trusted people in your life can be very helpful. Talking with a doctor, nurse, or other healthcare provider can also help. All-Options is a free hotline that you can also call to talk to someone and provide counseling and support.

I know I want an abortion. What are the different types of abortion?

There are two main types of abortion: a medication abortion (abortion with pills) and an in-clinic abortion. Medication abortion can be provided through an office visit or can be provided by telehealth and can generally be used in pregnancy up to 11 weeks. An in-clinic abortion is a procedure done by a doctor or nurse to remove the pregnancy. Both types of abortion are common and very safe.

How do I know how far along I am in my pregnancy?

Once you know you are pregnant and have taken a home pregnancy test, we can use the first day of your last period to figure out how long you have been pregnant. The first day of your last period is day 1. For people with regular periods, this is a reliable way to know how long you have been pregnant. If you are not sure when your last period was or if your periods are irregular, you may need an ultrasound to find out how far along you are in your pregnancy. In this case, we will recommend an in-person visit for care. We’ll help you find a provider for in-person care.

Who are the doctors?

Sunny’s doctors are board-certified, US-trained, and licensed in your state. We currently offer services in California and plan to add more states soon.

Where are the medications shipped from?

Medicines are processed and shipped by our mail-order pharmacy partner, Honeybee. Once your medicines are shipped, you’ll get a tracking number. Expedited shipping options are available for an additional fee.

Do you offer birth control?

Glad you asked! It’s possible to get pregnant again right away after having a medication abortion. If you want to prevent another pregnancy, it’s important to use birth control. There are many different options available for birth control. We will be happy to talk more with you about this. We can provide a prescription for you. Or for other methods that need an in-person visit (like an IUD or implant) we’ll be happy to help you find a healthcare provider.

What if I have questions?

We are available 24/7 via secure message, text, or phone. We’ll be here for you all along the way.

What is telehealth?

Telehealth, sometimes also called telemedicine, is a way to receive healthcare without an in-person visit. Telehealth can take different forms. Some examples of telehealth are: 1) talking to a doctor over the phone or on a video chat and 2) sending and receiving messages, files, or images, to and from your doctor.

At Sunny, we provide telehealth through our online questionnaires, through the patient portal, and are available by text and phone.

Do you offer refunds?

Once a prescription has been sent from our doctors to the pharmacy, we are not able to offer a refund. Before the prescription has been sent, you can contact us via secure message to ask about a refund

What forms of payment do you accept?

We currently accept credit and debit card payments. We are working hard to be able to take Medi-Cal and other insurance soon.
