Whats up with them? Have a friend that wants to use it. Does anyone know where one can get it in Naija. Infact any advice>>>>>>>>Really
|Re: Abortion Pills by mandi: 2:50am On Sep 27, 2007|
Do you mean Plan B pills, Levonorgestrel (EC)? It is not an abortion pill though. It is an emergency contraceptive that can still prevent a pregnancy after contraceptive failure, unprotected sex, or sexual assault.
More info here if that's what you are looking for:
|Re: Abortion Pills by Kilkenny: 1:14am On Sep 28, 2007|
There is no such thing as "abortion pill",at least not in naija anyway.There is a drug called Mifepristone (RU486) which is an abortifacient,but that is only used & prescribed by specialists in hospitals & under strict conditions & surveillance.
Of course,it is a different matter if your friend is actually intending to PREVENT pregnancy,in which case she can use the contraceptive pills, the "morning after" pill or the coil which are not abortifacients but rather reduce the chance of pregnancy occuring in the first place,after unprotected sex.
|Re: Abortion Pills by obino4lurv(m): 8:26pm On Sep 28, 2007|

Blimey! We're talking about human lives, not cattle!
Abortion's being disscussed as calmly as if the weather's the topic here.
Taking such strong medication, without proper medical checks and prescription could be tragic. People react differently to different drugs, i.e just because your friend took medication and was fine, does not mean you'll tolerate the same! Which is the reason folk are tested first to determine their tolerance, before powerful medication are prescribed.
Some people have intolerance to drugs as common as Aspirin and Quinne, with mild to severe side effects. Imagine an intolerance to drugs that are a lot stronger, it's possible to trigger a heart attack, or an epileptic fit.
|Re: Abortion Pills by shy1amy(f): 8:02pm On Oct 22, 2007|
I suggest u use preventive pills instead, abortion is murder oooo.
Just like the saying goes "prevention is better than cure"
You the guy may not know the implications of abortion but the woman should know better than that.
It can damage her womb or even kill her, so be wise Bro!
|Re: Abortion Pills by Nobody: 2:16pm On Oct 23, 2007|
Your "Friend" should not kill herself, there are no abotion pills, only morning after contraceptives. These are in effective after 72 hrs of intercourse. Abortion still remains illegal in Nigeria, getting an abortion is her own risk
|Re: Abortion Pills by Scopium: 12:35pm On Oct 25, 2007|
Legal or illegal, existing or non existing, what do you need abortion pills for? Are you a murderer?
|Re: Abortion Pills by chychy(f): 1:23pm On Nov 06, 2007|
I"m a christian and refuse to be associated with anything abortion. Simply put, i am anti-abortion.
|Re: Abortion Pills by Pappyjesby(m): 1:02am On Nov 14, 2007|
Abortion pill? Well, I don't think there is any thing like that yet, may I suggest that pregnancy be prevented in the first place, rather than terminating it. To start with, abortion in Nigeria today is a criminal offence, that apart, it is widely condemned by most religious beliefs, based on these facts If you know you aren't ready for baby yet, I would advise that you should stay away completely from unprotected sex.
You can suggest to your man to make use of condom, or you can engage the service of contraceptives, or better still
any available safe family planning programme.
I think this is safer than to risk your life unnecessarily. You stand a lot of risks when you abort your pregnancy,
You stand the risk of being infected with HIV I or II not only that you may be infected with siphilis, Hepetitis B etc.
I will therefore recommend that unwanted pregnancy be prevented at all cost.

Can somebody in the house suggest good and effective pills for this ??
|Re: Abortion Pills by ndubest(m): 11:15am On Nov 20, 2007|
PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE
A B S T I N E N C E
end of story
peolpe are just talking about drugs and abortion in this thread like its "akara and bread" matter
the pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics of different drugs varies in individual especially we africans because most of the studies you read on the net about these drugs are done with caucasians or asian and the way they react to drugs varies from our system
most of the sudies are conducted on them because they know their rights and have an organised system where peolpe "DONATE" themselves as guinea pig for drug trials
i advise you to avoid any of these abortificacents or what ever name u give. them, as u enjoy your youth dont forget that old age is coming except if u want to die young, and them the effect of these "CHEMICALS" will catch up with you

|Re: Abortion Pills by skitowo: 8:32pm On Feb 06, 2008|
Medically any drug that could cause abortion is contraindicated. appart from the abortion which might be your desired effect it often leads to incomplete abortion, this is a very good culture medium for bacteria hence resulting in septic abortion, and the complications of sepsis can be irreversible if not death.
Please this is a professional advice.
|Re: Abortion Pills by skitowo: 8:50pm On Feb 06, 2008|
Therapeutic abortion (abortion as a treatment) is however allowed in 1. case of rape 2. when the life of the woman is threatened 3. when the fetus has very bad congenital deformities.
The procedure should be carried out by a qualified medical doctor. It usually involve D&C or more advance procedure depending on the gestational age. but NEVER with abortion pills.
|Re: Abortion Pills by fsb(m): 5:20am On Feb 07, 2008|
Okay, for the purposes of information only and not because am pro-abortion, I would like to say that YES, there are actually pills available for inducing a miscarriage. As to availability, they are available just that they are not OTC drugs (over the counter). They are under direct government control but I believe they are available.
Secondly, I am not pro-abortion but I can't stop wondering which is a lesser crime: Inducing a miscarriage or Having a baby and dumping it in the refuse dumps scattered across cities in Nigeria?
PS: Please remember that inducing a miscarriage is illegal in Nigeria?

Ending a Pregnancy
Ending a Pregnancy
What is abortion?
Abortion means ending a
pregnancy early. In some cases, a
woman’s pregnancy ends on its
own. This is called a miscarriage,
or a spontaneous abortion. In
other cases, a woman chooses to
end her pregnancy by taking
medicine (called medical
abortion) or having surgery
(called surgical abortion). These 2
types of abortion are usually
done in the first trimester (the
first 3 months) of the pregnancy.
They are performed by a doctor
and other health care
professionals in the hospital,
doctor’s office or health center.
What is medical abortion?
A medical abortion is an abortion
caused by medicine. It can only
be done in the first 9 weeks of
pregnancy. The most common
type of medical abortion uses a
medicine called mifepristone.
This is a pill that blocks
progesterone, a hormone
needed for pregnancy. It causes
the lining of the womb (uterus)
to become thin.
For this procedure, a woman
visits her doctor 3 times. During
the first visit, the woman takes
mifepristone. She comes back a
few days later to take another
medicine called misoprostol.
Misoprostol makes the uterus
contract and empty. Many
women have bleeding for about
13 days after taking misoprostol.
Light bleeding or discharge
(called spotting) can continue for
several weeks. After a couple of
weeks, the woman will return to
the doctor for a follow-up visit to
be sure that the medicine was
What does medical abortion
For most women, medical
abortion feels like a bad
menstrual period with strong
cramps, diarrhea and upset
stomach. These symptoms are
normal. Acetaminophen (one
brand name: Tylenol) or
ibuprofen (two brand names:
Advil, Motrin) can help relieve the
cramps. However, the doctor will
want to know if any of the
Bleeding through more than 2
sanitary pads in an hour
Fever above 100°F for more
than 4 hours
Pain even after taking
acetaminophen or ibuprofen
How effective is medical
Mifepristone is about 97%
effective. In rare cases when
medical abortion doesn’t work,
surgical abortion may be tried.
What is surgical abortion?
Surgical abortion is a procedure
done by a doctor to remove the
lining of the womb. There are 2
common procedures: manual
vacuum aspiration (MVA), and
dilatation and evacuation (D&E).
They both use suction to empty
the womb. MVA uses a handheld
tool. D&E is done with a suction
machine and tools.
MVA can be done in the first 12
weeks of pregnancy. D&E can be
done after the first month of
pregnancy and before the end of
the 13th week.
For both procedures, medicine
can be given to help the woman
feel calm. Then the doctor injects
around the opening to the
womb (called the cervix) with
medicine to make it numb. The
cervix is stretched open with a
tool called a dilator, and the
doctor inserts a tube. The uterus
is emptied through this tube.
What does surgical abortion
For most women, surgical
abortion feels like strong
menstrual cramps. Women are
usually given medicine to help
with the pain and told to rest
when they get home.
Acetaminophen or ibuprofen can
also help. Bleeding may continue
off and on for a few weeks.
How effective is surgical
Surgical abortion is nearly 100%
Are abortions safe?
When done by health care
professionals during the first
trimester, both medical and
surgical abortions are generally
very safe. Serious complications
are rare. Abortion generally does
not reduce a woman's ability to
get pregnant in the future.
