How effective is medication abortion by mail?
The abortion pill method is extremely effective with a success rate of nearly 95%. Only 2-3% of patients require any further follow-up or intervention following an incomplete or failed non-surgical abortion. Of course, any further follow-up treatment that may be needed is provided at no cost to the patient.
Is it safe?
Medication abortion by mail is extremely safe and effective. However, it is important that you understand the risks of forgoing an ultrasound since your clinician is determining the gestational age of the pregnancy by your last regular period. Because there is no ultrasound involved, taking a medication abortion by mail does have more risk than an abortion in the office setting. It is possible that the pregnancy is more advanced than you think or that the pregnancy is growing abnormally. It is also possible that the pregnancy is growing outside of your uterus. This rare (<2%) but dangerous risk, is called an ectopic pregnancy.
