At-Home Abortion Information

Abortion At Home

An abortion at home is a personal choice.  This allows a woman to choose who is present with her for emotional support, or to be alone if she prefers discretion.  Some women consider at-home abortions to be a longer process than a traditional surgical abortion and are concerned they may have complications outside of a medical facility or hospital.

Once choosing abortion at home, there are two options: a telehealth appointment with a mail-out service (abortion by mail) or an appointment with a local abortion provider. 

Some women choose a telehealth professional to determine their eligibility for medical abortion (abortion pill, also known as Plan C). However a telehealth professional cannot perform a physical examination via ultrasound and therefore is unable to determine factors that are critical to the type of abortion a woman is eligible for.  A telehealth examiner cannot confirm a viable pregnancy ruling out miscarriage or ectopic pregnancy.  That is why it’s important to get a pre-abortion screening before making your pregnancy decision.

Why Pregnancy Resource Center Medical Clinic?

At Pregnancy Resource Center Medical Clinic we provide a pre-abortion screening at no cost, which will confirm several things:

  • Determine fetal age (a positive pregnancy test does not mean you have a viable pregnancy)
  • Ensure you have not miscarried (up to 1 in 4 known pregnancies may end in miscarriage)
  • Rule out ectopic pregnancy (which in some cases can be fatal)

Our licensed medical professionals will conduct the screening, and our staff can discuss your options with you. Knowing all the facts and associated risks before starting the abortion procedure is a vital next step.

Be Safe

According to the FDA, the abortion pill is not a safe option for those who:

  • has an ectopic pregnancy (a pregnancy outside of the uterus)
  • has problems with the adrenal glands (the glands near the kidneys)
  • is currently being treated with long-term corticosteroid therapy (medications)
  • has had an allergic reaction to the medications used in the medication abortion protocol
  • has bleeding problems or is taking anticoagulant (blood thinning) drug products
  • has inherited porphyria
  • has an intrauterine device (IUD) in place

Other safety considerations:

  • the need for a follow-up visit
  • having immediate access to emergency care
  • blood testing for RH factor

Before you make an abortion decision, get a no-cost pre-abortion screening appointment at our clinic today.

A: The abortion pill is available in-clinic or by mail through telehealth and can cost between $249 – $800 depending upon location, services available, and insurance provider. Costs may include: lab work, exam, and follow-up visit. If the abortion pill fails and your pregnancy continues, you may also have to pay for a second abortion procedure.

A: You can get an abortion pill either through an abortion provider’s clinic or by an online mail source.  For mail order, in most cases, a telehealth appointment is required and the medication for the abortion is sent directly to you without an in-person physical examination.  A physical examination is important because it dates the pregnancy, rules out ectopic pregnancy, and determines viability (if you are at risk for miscarriage).  At Pregnancy Resource Center Medical Clinic you can receive a pre-abortion screening at no-cost by a medical professional.

A: Missed period pill is another name for the abortion pill.  Some people may think it might help them psychologically if they’re unsure about abortion.  Regardless of its name, you should know that it is an abortion.

If I could give this place zero stars I would. The team members are so rude and inconsiderate. They have no compassion and have a flaccid demeanor. When comfort was needed there was none given and immediately went to worst case scenarios and sent me on my way. When someone is alone and scared, step up and at least be a human and show kindness. If you’re alone or having a first time experience of something that should be joyful, find someone to bring with you because this staff will not be it for you.

Best place ever. Everyone is so kind and comforting and very clearly genuinely care about you, your story, and your needs. The office is SO clean, and has such a calming, peaceful atmosphere. I am so grateful to have found this place, seriously my saving grace. Can not say enough good things. I left crying happy tears and feeling a humongous weight lifted off my shoulders. Forever thankful for this place and the amazing ladies that work there.

The people who work here clearly care about their clients. PRC is an incredible resource - I would recommend it to any young woman who thinks she may be facing an unplanned pregnancy. This clinic offers so much helpful information on abortion, adoption, and parenting - all the while, offering encouragement and support to women in crisis.
