At-Home Abortion Pills Step by Step
Meet with your clinician, (by video, phone, email or text) to decide which option is best for you.
Get your pills by mail or in person and take them as directed. We have 24/7 medical support available.
Have a follow up visit with your clinician (by video, phone or in person) to confirm you’re no longer pregnant.
Manual Uterine Aspiration Procedure (MUA)
Some clinicians in our network also offer this quick, simple and safe procedure.
It’s not surgery! It’s done in a regular medical office, on an exam table, similar to getting your pap test.
Other names: Manual Vacuum Aspiration (MVA), Menstrual Extraction, Aspiration Procedure, and SofTouch.
Meet with your clinician, (by video, phone, email or text) to discuss if this procedure is right for you.
Manual Uterine Aspiration
Come into the private office to complete your procedure. The procedure takes under 5 minutes. The appointment time is one to two hours. Your companion is welcome.
Follow up visits usually aren’t necessary but are available if needed/requested.
Is Abortion legal?
Yes. Abortion is currently legal in the United States of America, but each state has slightly different laws. We will help you understand the laws in your state and what type of abortion you’re eligible for based on where you live.
How do I know I have an early pregnancy?
We define early pregnancy as up to 12 weeks pregnant. You can figure out how far along you are in your pregnancy by counting the number of days from the first day of your last normal period to today.
For example, if the first day of your last normal period was 22 days ago, then you’re 22 days pregnant (or 3 weeks and 1 day).
Is it safe to take Abortion Pills without a blood test or ultrasound?
Yes. Studies have shown that this no-test option is safe, as long as you meet certain criteria. Our clinicians will make sure that you do. The main criteria are:
-You have a positive pregnancy test at home.
-You have regular periods.
-You are up to 10 weeks pregnant.
-You do not have risk factors for or symptoms of an “ectopic pregnancy” (a pregnancy outside of the uterus, which can be quite dangerous). Symptoms can include severe lower belly pain (especially on one side), vaginal bleeding or spotting, and/or feeling very weak, dizzy, or fainting.
-You have a phone, tablet, or computer (to communicate with us).
-You agree to seek help if there are any complications and you live within one hour of emergency medical care.
How do I get the Abortion Pills?
You can get abortion pills from a clinician either in their office or in some cases by mail. Ask your MYA clinician for details.
Is It safe to have a miscarriage at home?
If you are up to 10 weeks pregnant the bleeding is manageable. Urgent bleeding issues are extremely rare. If there is any ongoing heavy bleeding you would be advised to be seen in an office for evaluation.
What if I need help when I am taking the Abortion Pills?
Your MYA clinician will have 24/7 medical support available. It is extremely rare that you would require emergency assistance while going through the medication abortion process, but if so we would recommend you go to an emergency room near you. We will help you to arrange whatever care you may need.
What is Manual Uterine Aspiration?
Manual Uterine Aspiration (MUA) is a safe, simple, in-office procedure that takes 2-5 minutes to complete and is specifically designed for people³ seeking to end an early pregnancy. MUA can also be used to treat an early miscarriage, or to treat an incomplete medication abortion. Both the abortion pill and MUA are recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) as the safest early abortion options.
How do I decide which method is right for me?
You will meet with your clinician in-person or via a video visit, they will review your medical issues and personal situation, and together you will come up with the option that is best for you. If you are unsure about your decision at any time during the process, the clinician and our dedicated staff will answer any and all of your questions. There is absolutely no pressure if you change your mind at any time. We are here to support you.
