Medical abortion is not an option if you…
- Have not verified the location of the pregnancy
- Are too far along in your pregnancy
- Currently have an intrauterine device (IUD) in place
- Have a certain medical condition
- Take a blood thinner or certain steroid medicines
- Have an allergy to medicines used for the procedure
- Do not have a medical provider or access to emergency care
The decision to have an abortion is highly personal, impacting certain relationships, and comes with risks.
Know your options to make an informed decision and don’t go it alone.
A medical abortion is a procedure that uses medicine to end a pregnancy. Sometimes it is advertised as a “chemical abortion” or a prescribed “abortion pill-kit.”
A medical abortion does not require a hospital stay or anesthesia; however, it is important that you verify your positive pregnancy test with an ultrasound to understand what will transpire when you terminate your pregnancy.
