It's natural to feel scared or worried after a positive pregnancy test. Once you see those results, you may start weighing your options, including the abortion pill. If you have questions about how the abortion pill works, or want to talk to someone confidentially, Assure Women's Center is here for you.

First Things First
As mentioned above, there are a couple of initial steps you should consider taking before obtaining the abortion pill.
If you've already received a positive pregnancy test, you should verify your result with an ultrasound. An ultrasound will detect if you have a viable, in utero, pregnancy and how far along you are, which determines whether you are eligible for a medical abortion. At Assure Women's Center, we can provide you with this information and a free ultrasound. No insurance needed.
We can give you information regarding the abortion pill so you can make a decision that's best for you.
What is the "Abortion Pill?"
A medical or non-surgical abortion uses the "Abortion Pill" or other chemicals to terminate an early pregnancy. This method of abortion is used up to 70 days after a woman’s last menstrual period. If you are farther along in your pregnancy, a medical abortion may be ineffective. Getting a medical abortion may involve up to two office visits and may require a surgical procedure if the medical abortion is incomplete. Please note that this is not the "Morning-After Pill", which is a form of emergency contraceptive and is not considered an abortion alternative.
