At Home Abortion
What is an at Home Abortion?
An at home abortion is a medical abortion also known as the abortion pill. It is a series of 2 pills. The first pill you will take with your medical provider. The second pill you will take on your own at home. At home is where the fetus will be expelled (deliver) from the uterus, without direct in person medical supervision. While the abortion pill seems fairly straightforward, it’s still a serious medical procedure and can lead to serious physical and mental health complications.
While a do-it-yourself abortion may sound ideal when you want to keep your pregnancy private, in reality, at-home abortion methods are far from guaranteed. Will you trust your health to just anyone?

PELVIC INFLAMMATORY DISEASE (PID)
