Abortion pill easy to administer & can be taken in the privacy of your home. Our team will walk you through the process in real time

Using Mifepristone and Misoprostol is no more complicated than using other medications. You will get step-by-step instructions about how to use the pills, what to expect, and and when you need to see a doctor or licensed medical practitioner, should you experience any complications. If you have questions about any step of the process, you can contact our helpline. A medical abortion does not need to take place in a hospital or first aid clinic in order to be safe.

The risks of a medical abortion are the same as those of a miscarriage. About 15% of all pregnancies end in a miscarriage, most of which do not happen in a hospital. Most women will deal with miscarriages themselves and only seek medical attention in case of problems, such as prolonged heavy bleeding or fever. A medical abortion resembles a miscarriage and can occur safely at home. Please ensure you are less than 10 weeks pregnant and live within 1 hour from a first aid facility.
