Is it Safe to Order Abortion Pills Online?

Since Texas and other states have banned abortion, some women are considering ordering abortion pills (Mifepristone and Misoprostol) online from websites that exist outside the legitimate U.S. drug supply chain. While self-managed abortion with pills purchased online may provide accessibility and convenience, it is essential to consider significant health risks and precautions. 1. Online pills lack FDA regulatory oversight and bypass important safeguards. The FDA recommends that Mifepristone “be dispensed to you by your health care provider (or someone under the supervision of your health care provider), or by a pharmacy to which your health care provider has submitted your prescription.” The FDA cautions against buying medications from online sources because it “cannot ensure the safety, effectiveness, or quality of those medications.” In other words, without regulatory oversight, there is no guarantee that pills ordered online are legitimate and safe. 2. Not all women are candidates for the abortion pill. Women with certain medical conditions and pregnancy circumstances should not take abortion pills. Self-managed abortion outside the healthcare system skips vital steps to ensure that you are a candidate for the abortion pill. Before proceeding with medication or chemical abortion, it is important to have your pregnancy evaluated with a

Do I need “proof of pregnancy” before an abortion?

While a drugstore pregnancy test is convenient, it cannot provide the health and medical information needed to schedule an abortion. Before you book at an out of state abortion clinic, we can save you time and money but providing proof of pregnancy via ultrasound to verify viability (if the pregnancy is able to continue) and how far along you are. We can also provide lab-quality urine pregnancy testing if you think you might be pregnant. This test detects the presence of the hormone hCG, which the body produces during pregnancy.  A limited ultrasound can be performed as early as 5.5 weeks from a woman’s last menstrual period. It is the only definitive way to diagnose a healthy, progressing pregnancy. During an ultrasound scan, a medical professional will ensure the pregnancy is occurring inside the uterus, look for and measure the heart rate, and measure the fetus to establish an estimated due date. An ultrasound can also rule out an ectopic pregnancy. This scan is quick and provides valuable information to aid in your decision-making process. It is important to note that our limited ultrasounds do not diagnose fetal abnormalities or gender.  Note: Before you leave Texas or order abortion pills, having an ultrasound performed can
