All at-home medicinal regimens should be fully researched and taken with caution as there can always be unintended consequences. This includes online or medical abortions.
Your overall health and well-being are most important. Before considering an at-home abortion, it’s essential to understand all aspects of the treatment.
What is an Online Abortion?
An online or at-home abortion (more commonly known as a medical abortion), uses two drugs to induce an abortion: mifepristone and misoprostol, which together are called the abortion pill.
Mifepristone blocks progesterone, the pregnancy hormone. Blocking progesterone weakens and thins the uterus, causing the embryo to detach.
Misoprostol is the second part of the abortion pill that is taken. It stimulates contractions to expel the embryo through the vagina.
If you’re pregnant or think you are, it’s important to verify a viable pregnancy with a lab-quality pregnancy test and ultrasound before you take next steps. Schedule your no-cost, confidential appointment today to learn more.
Again, it is essential to protect your health and safety first. Before considering an abortion or any medical treatment, it is essential to:
- Get a physical exam to understand your health and wellness.
- Give a full report of your medical history and share any current conditions.
- Receive a lab-quality pregnancy test with an ultrasound to verify the pregnancy, and ensure it is not ectopic (which cannot be treated with a medical abortion).
- Talk with a trusted physician or medical staff to understand any risks, complications, and all of your available options.
