3 Things to Know Before Ordering the Abortion Pill Online

If you just found out you’re unexpectedly pregnant it can be a challenge to stay calm and make a safe and informed choice for yourself and your future. Woman’s New Life Clinic is here to provide you with the information you need before deciding if abortion is right for you, especially when it comes to ordering the medication online.

Here are 3 things to know before ordering the abortion pill online:

1. Are you eligible to take the abortion pill?

The first question to ask yourself before ordering the abortion pill online is, “Am I eligible to take the abortion pill?” It’s important to know that not all women are eligible to take the abortion pill.

According to the FDA, the abortion pill should only be used in the first 70 days of pregnancy — taking it too late in pregnancy could result in complications such as retained fetal tissue, which can lead to infections.

Before taking the abortion pill, even if done through a medical provider, it’s important to receive an ultrasound scan to determine the gestational age of the fetus.

Woman’s New Life Clinic provides no-cost ultrasound scans to provide women with this important insight regarding their pregnancies. Schedule your appointment today!

2. Is the medication you’re ordering FDA approved?

Taking the abortion pill is a serious medical procedure and ordering the medication online is not advised. While it may seem like an easy and discrete way of accessing an abortion, it could have serious consequences.

This is due to the fact that some medications sold online are often done without the supervision or accountability of the FDA and may not be tested and approved for safe consumption. Furthermore, ordering the medication online without seeing a medical provider could pose severe risks if you date your pregnancy inaccurately or if your pregnancy is ectopic. In order to learn more about the pregnancy options that will be safe for you, schedule a medical consultation with Woman’s New Life Clinic today.

3. The side effects and risks related to the abortion pill and ordering it online

Whether you’re considering ordering the abortion pill online or accessing abortion through an abortion provider, it’s important to take time to understand the side effects and risks you may encounter.

Taking the abortion pill is associated with side effects such as nausea, weakness, fever, chills, vomiting, headache, diarrhea, and dizziness. In addition to these side effects, women have reported more serious health conditions related to abortion such as infection, septic shock, and hemorrhaging.

Complications caused by the abortion pill may require serious medical attention, which is another reason it’s important to make all medical choices with the help of a medical professional.
