Your health & Safety checklist
Is the pregnancy viable?
A positive pregnancy test is an indicator of pregnancy, not a verification. Before you pay for an abortion, rule out a naturally occurring miscarriage. If the pregnancy is not viable, the abortion pill should not be taken.
Is the pregnancy occurring in the uterus?
It's important to rule out an ectopic pregnancy before you buy or take abortion pills or before you schedule a procedure.
Do you know your Rh factor?
This can determine if you need a RhoGAM shot after an abortion is complete. If you are Rh-negative, we can provide a needed RhoGam shot to you.
Have you been tested for STDs?
If you are considering an abortion procedure, ruling out an STI can prevent further infection or complications. We provide the needed testing and treatment prior to an abortion procedure.
Do you know how far along you are?
