What should I do before taking the abortion pill?
Confirm Pregnancy. It is important to confirm you are actually pregnant and know how far along you are to determine if you are eligible for the abortion pill. The FDA has approved the abortion pill for up to 10 weeks pregnancy or 70 days from the first day of your last menstrual period.
Get An Ultrasound. 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage and 80% of miscarriages occur within the first 13 weeks of pregnancy. Call Gateway Women’s Care today for your free ultrasound to confirm your pregnancy and rule out the possibility of an early miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, or being further along than expected.
Rule Out Potential Risks. The abortion pill has 4 times the rate of complications than a surgical abortion. Call today to find out if you are at risk of complications should you choose the abortion pill.
American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) states pregnancies are 40% more accurately dated via ultrasound than by a woman’s last menstrual period (LMP). Misdiagnosed LMP’s are common, increasing the likelihood of abortion pills being used outside of FDA safety guidelines.
