ABORTION via Telehealth
What is Abortion via Telehealth?
In most circumstances, doctors can perform medication abortion through telehealth (phone) for women who are unwilling or unable to visit clinics. Telehealth consists of three consultations with knowledgeable and qualified health professionals who will analyze your condition, request the required tests, prescribe the relevant medications, advise you through the procedure, and follow you up according to best practice. If it requires testing, an abortion practitioner does a video evaluation, analyzes the results of those tests, and mails the abortion pills to the patient.
Abortion via telehealth is a safe and convenient way to end a pregnancy before nine weeks. Using the Abortion Pill to end a pregnancy at home is a safe and confidential option.
There’s no need for you to come to one of our abortion clinics. We’ll schedule blood and ultrasound tests close to your home. Our doctor will talk to you after the results come back and will guide you through the abortion process.
What Can You Expect Following an Abortion via Telehealth?
A typical period lasts between 9 and 15 days; however, some women have bled for as long as 70 days. Call the clinic if bleeding hasn’t started within 24 hours or if it’s getting worse. As soon as a week goes by, you’ll get another blood test to ensure you aren’t pregnant. There will be a dramatic decline in pregnancy hormone levels, but it will still be positive. After we receive the results, we’ll get in touch with you to ensure everything is good. Pregnancy can be ended medically with two medications (mifepristone and misoprostol), similar to a miscarriage at any stage up to nine weeks. Millions of women around the world have taken these medications safely and effectively.
