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.

Are you considering ordering abortions pills by mail?

Everyone is talking about ordering abortion pills by mail. Since the overturn of Roe v Wade, the conditions in the US are ripe for the growing number of black market websites selling Mifepristone and Misoprostol – the two abortion pill drugs.

Here’s what you need to know to stay safe and protect yourself –

  • Are pills ordered online going to be safe and effective?
    • Beware of fake, online pharmacies located outside of the US. They may offer deep discounts without a prescription, but they are not licensed to practice in the USA. There is no way to protect you from these unregulated manufacturers or verify that the medication ingredients and dosages are accurate. More and more illegal abortion pill provider websites are popping up since the overturn of Roe v Wade.
  • Is it legal to order abortion pills by mail in North Carolina?
    • The current laws in North Carolina require that the first dose of the abortion pill – Mifepristone – be taken in the presence of the provider. Beware of websites that will sell you this drug without a prescription and take no legal liability – they will sell to you regardless of the laws in North Carolina.
  • What happens if there are complications?
    • The reason the abortion pill is highly regulated is due to known adverse risks and the need for medical oversight during usage. Avoid purchasing abortion pills from websites that instruct you to hide your abortion or lie about it to your loved ones or health care teams. They do not have your best health interests as their primary concern. Any complication you experience would require you seeking emergency help – there is no prescribing doctor or clinic to call on for help.
