At Home Abortion & Your Option

While skipping the abortion clinic and ordering online may look like an easy, stress-free option, we’re here to help you understand the risks involved. There is information you need to know ahead of time, what to expect, and what to do if things go wrong at home.

Your best first step is an ultrasound to confirm a viable intrauterine pregnancy and rule out an ectopic pregnancy, which can be life-threatening. An ultrasound can also tell you how far along you are. This information can determine your eligibility for specific abortion procedures. Book a cost-free consultation and ultrasound appointment. No insurance is needed and same-day appointments are often available.

At Home Abortion Side Effects

After both doses of medication have been taken you can expect bleeding and cramping to start between one and four hours after taking the second pill. 

Other side effects and risks of a medical abortion include but are not limited to:

  • Heavy bleeding (you fill more than a pad an hour)
  • Abdominal pain
  • Infection
  • Fever or chills
  • Feeling dizzy or lightheaded 
  • Nausea, diarrhea and vomiting
  • Allergic reactions to medications
  • Incomplete abortion

Before an abortion, it’s important to talk to a medical professional about your health history and what to do in the event of an allergic reaction to the medication, which can be seriousl. In states that have been measuring the side effects, reported complications from the abortion pill have increased in the past several years.

If you have only taken the first dose of the abortion pill and changed your mind, it is still your choice. Contact us immediately, or if it’s after hours, learn more about how to continue your pregnancy

Abortion Pills By Mail

The abortion pill comes with a black box label, which is the highest level of caution assigned by the FDA. Taking the abortion pill without seeing a doctor or having an ultrasound is never recommended. The side effects range from unpleasant (cramping, bleeding, nausea, headache, fever) to life-threatening (sepsis, rupturing of the uterus, undiagnosed ectopic pregnancy, and more). Due to a lack of regulation and unsafe medications, the FDA also issued a warning not to order pills by mail

However, if you’ve already ordered pills, we can still provide you with an ultrasound to confirm how far along you are, whether it is a viable pregnancy, and if it is located in the uterus. Women deserve to get answers and services from a place that does not profit from their choice. While we do not refer for or provide abortion services, we can give you the answers you need to make an informed choice. Call us today to get started.
