Frequently asked clinical questions about medical abortion, WHO
English Español Français Русский
On 1–5 November 2004, in Bellagio, Italy, the UNDP/UNFPA/WHO/World Bank Special Programme of Research, Development and Research Training in Human Reproduction (HRP), organized a meeting entitled International Consensus Conference on Non-surgical (Medical) Abortion in Early First Trimester on Issues Related to Regimens and Service Delivery (Annex 1). This document is the result of the deliberations of the participants in that meeting, who included highly experienced researchers and clinicians in the area of medical abortion.
Prior to the meeting health-care personnel providing abortion services in various countries were asked to provide a list of the most frequently asked questions about medical abortion. The meeting participants reviewed those questions and compiled answers to them based on the scientific literature and their own clinical experience. The answers are presented in this publication.
Questions about medical abortion can be found on "Information for women", The ICMA Information Package on Medical Abortion.
