A 20-year-old female asked:
Would there be problems to take an abortion pill if i had a surgical abortion in the past?

OB-GYN consult: Although this may be safe if taken as prescribed by your OB-GYN physician (Obstetrician & Gynecologist) I highly suggest you adhere to more rational and safe methods of birth control such as condoms to avoid any further unwanted pregnancies. The abortion pill is approved by the FDA for use to terminate a pregnancy during the first 10 weeks of development.
