I heard this term and can't find what it means. Can someone explain? It was on an abortion site and said certain birth control methods that can lead to breakthrough ovulation actually cause abortion as well as IUD's and EC's since they prevent implantation.

Mind you I don't consider any of that an abortion.

I'm just wondering what the term means.

Sounds like you were looking at an antichoice site. That's where you'll tend to see that brought up in this way and using that term (which is why you are probably having trouble finding its meaning elsewhere).

All the same, methods which work by suppressing ovulation (as one part) don't always suppress ovulation. Sometimes ovulation happens anyway. Sometimes that will result in a pregnancy and sometimes it will not, especially with methods that work in other ways, like by also thickening cervical mucus and thinning the uterine lining. That's really all that means.
