At-Home Abortion Information in Oceanside-Camp Pendleton, CA

Abortion At Home Oceanside-Camp Pendleton, CA

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 in Oceanside-Camp Pendleton, CA.

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 near Mission Viejo, 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 mifepristone, misoprostol or similar drugs
  • has bleeding problems or is taking anticoagulant (blood thinning) drug products
  • has inherited porphyria
  • has an intrauterine device (IUD) in place (it must be removed before taking Mifeprex).

Other safety considerations:

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