Unfortunately, not for all women of the sexes about the pregnancy is joyful news.
Thanks to the achievements in the pharmacological industry for more than a quarter of a century, you can perform abortion at the very beginning of pregnancy without using of surgical methods.
For the first time successful and safe for a woman, interruption of pregnancy by medicines was performed in the 70s of the 20th century in France. Mifepristone was used for the procedure, which is an antiprogestin. In the early 1980s, large-scale drug studies began in Geneva, and by the end of the decade this method was widely used in Europe. To mifepristone prostaglandins and other pharmacological agents were added.
Today, medical abortion is widely used in medical practice, as it allows to avoid surgical intervention and to hide from the people the fact of the abortion.
