Medical Consultations Before an Abortion

Abortion pill side effects and abortion recovery after a clinic procedure can vary greatly from person to person. Before you take pills at home or schedule a surgical abortion, start with a medical consultation to review your health history, eligibility, side effects, and more.

How We Can Help

We provide consultations, pregnancy testing, and pregnancy confirmation free of charge.

 

If you are considering the abortion pill, at your appointment, please share if you have ever had:

  • low levels of potassium in your blood

  • heart disease

  • a bleeding or blood-clotting disorder

  • liver or kidney disease

  • an organ transplant

  • a problem with your adrenal glands

  • St. John's wort

  • medication to treat hepatitis or HIV

  • an antibiotic or antifungal medication

  • heart or blood pressure medication

  • seizure medication
     

Do not take the abortion pill if it has been more than 70 days (10 weeks) since your last menstrual period began, you have an ectopic pregnancy, or are allergic to the drugs used. While we do not provide abortion services, we can provide an ultrasound to confirm an intrauterine pregnancy and give more information on your options.

Contact us to book a free pre-abortion consultation today.
