Research about the Women on Web services, published in the British Journal of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (BJOG), August 2008, has shown that it is acceptable and safe for women to do medical abortions at home in countries where there is no access to safe abortion services. The study showed that with a 78% follow up rate, 6,8% of women have received a curettage or vacuum aspiration by local doctors. This is in the same range as other abortion services provided in outpatient settings.
