It’s easy to get the abortion pill by mail, but how do you know if you need an abortion?


If you have had a positive pregnancy test, the next step is to have an ultrasound exam, which evaluates the viability of your pregnancy and how far along you are. An ultrasound exam can be performed as early as six weeks gestation. Although pregnancy tests can detect pregnancy hormone in the urine, a positive test doesn’t always mean you’re pregnant. An ultrasound exam can do the following:

  • Confirm a viable pregnancy;
  • Identify if your pregnancy is located in your uterus (not ectopic); and
  • Give you a more accurate idea of how far along your pregnancy is.

A limited OB ultrasound exam is an important tool for you in your decision-making process and is provided to qualifying patients at no cost. If you think you may be pregnant, our medical staff is here to empower you to make a thoughtful and confident pregnancy decision.

3 Things to Know if You Are Considering Mail-Order Abortion

Abortion delivered ⎼ sounds like a simple and easy process, but there are real risks to consider for your safety. If you’re considering a medical abortion (the Abortion Pill), it’s essential to learn about the process before you make a decision. Medication abortion can have a significant impact on your future and your health.

1. Determine how far along you are

First and foremost, how far along are you? The gestational age determines if you are even eligible for mail-order abortion using medication.

The FDA shares that medication abortion is only recommended for women up to 70 days gestation. Otherwise, surgical abortion may be your only other abortion option.

Confirm how far along you are with an ultrasound after receiving lab-quality pregnancy testing at Clear Choice Clinic. This step is necessary to move forward with any type of abortion and is offered at no cost to you.

2. Know the risks of Mail-Order Abortion

Medication abortion has safety guards put into place for a reason. When considering having abortion medication delivered to your home, also known as online abortion, there are risks to keep in mind, including:

The lack of a pre-abortion screening can put women’s health in danger.

  • Without an ultrasound, it is impossible to verify an intrauterine pregnancy. If your pregnancy is forming outside the uterus (ectopic pregnancy) a medication abortion will not be successful and the result could be life-threatening to you.
  • Medication abortion taken after 10 weeks (70 days) is not recommended by the manufacturer or best practice guidelines and may result in an incomplete abortion. An ultrasound can verify how far along you are.

There are also physical risks of medication abortion to consider. There are two different drugs taken to terminate an existing pregnancy: mifepristone and misoprostol. Possible risks of these two drugs include:

  • Incomplete abortion, which may need to be followed by surgical abortion
  • An ongoing unwanted pregnancy if the procedure doesn’t work
  • Heavy and prolonged bleeding
  • Infection
  • Fever
