You may be wondering, “Can I buy the abortion pill online?” The answer is yes. The abortion pill is available to purchase online and be delivered to your doorstep. Still, some important caveats are vital for you to know before deciding to order a drug online.
The abortion pill is only safe to use when you are within 10 weeks of your pregnancy. A major risk of taking the abortion pill from an online provider is not knowing exactly how far along you are. Additionally, you are likely unaware if you have had a miscarriage. Because pregnancy hormones are present in a woman’s body for days, or weeks, after her miscarriage, pregnancy tests read as positive even though pregnancy may have already ended on its own. In this instance, there would be no need for the abortion pill.
Although it’s challenging to find the exact price of purchasing the abortion pill online, GoodRx lists $500 as the average cost.
Why Learn Your Gestational Age?
Your gestational age is simply how far along you are in your pregnancy. Knowing how long you’ve been pregnant is vital information to understand, and it will help keep you safe as you make your pregnancy decision.
According to the FDA, you are only eligible to take the abortion pill 70 days or less from the first day of your last menstrual period. This helps keeps you safe from complications associated with taking an abortion pill too far into your pregnancy.
Are you confident you know the date your pregnancy began? At Women’s Care Medical Center, many women do not have regular monthly cycles or don’t remember when their last period was. If that is true of you, knowing the dating of a pregnancy can be difficult or uncertain. Confirmation of a viable pregnancy and precise dating can only be done through an ultrasound exam and is an important first step.
How Do I Know If I’ve Miscarried?
According to the Mayo Clinic, up to 20% of known pregnancies end in a natural miscarriage. Some estimate it could be 30% or more because many women miscarry before knowing they are pregnant.
How do you tell if you’ve already miscarried? Once again, ultrasound can answer this question.
Where Can I Get A No-Cost Ultrasound?
At Women’s Care Medical Center, we believe every woman should have access to the ultrasound services they need.
Ultrasounds are the best tools to keep you safe as you make your pregnancy decision. Our ultrasound will confirm the number of days you’ve been pregnant and whether you have miscarried. The ultrasound will also verify the location of the pregnancy, as some pregnancies form outside the uterus and are extremely dangerous. The abortion pill will not expel this variation of pregnancy.
