There are a couple of safety concerns to consider before proceeding with an online (or at-home) abortion consisting of the two abortion pills, mifepristone and misoprostol. The lack of medical oversight and unknown online providers is a direct risk to your health.

Your health should be the number one priority, and we want to help you safeguard it. Keep reading to learn more about the safety risks of this avenue of medical abortion done online.

Lack of Medical Oversight

Medical oversight is necessary before proceeding with any type of major medical procedure, including abortion. For your health and safety, medical oversight is recommended in person to confirm pregnancy details, assess your current health, and more.

With online abortion (at-home abortion), this key step is minimal, which poses a threat to your health. It’s important to note that you may not be eligible for the abortion pill, as the FDA recommends medical abortion only through 10 weeks of pregnancy.

Quality of the Drugs

Another safety risk of online abortion (at-home abortion) is the sometimes unregulated drugs that may be ordered through providers. The FDA recommends against online abortion because online providers are often unregulated or located overseas.

There is a risk of getting the wrong dosage of drugs as well as the unknown quality. The two abortion drugs you get online may not be fully safe or effective, risking your health with this type of abortion method.

Why Pregnancy Confirmation Matters

Both pregnancy testing and an ultrasound are important to confirming your pregnancy details and safeguarding your health. Be alerted to any potential complications, know how far along you are, and if you’re eligible for medical abortion with an ultrasound.
