Teen Vogue spoke with experts on self-managed abortion, and people who have gone through the process, to explain what it’s really like.

“While abortion has existed for as long as people have been able to get pregnant, self-managed abortion has recently become more popular in the U.S. Now that the Supreme Court has overturned Roe v. Wade and abortion is becoming illegal in multiple states, more people are interested in learning about self managed abortion via the abortion pill. As a result, many may wonder what is the abortion pill like, and what it’s like to have a self managed abortion.”
