Can the abortion pill cause extreme weight gain?

In brief: Not directly

The abortion pill contains an agent that blocks progesterone, then another which causes the uterus to contract.
There is nothing to expect long term effects on hormone status and weight gain. Sometimes, there is "post-abortion depression" which can lead to weight gain. Otherwise, it is wise to check with your gynecologist for thyroid and hormone levels.
