The Abortion Pill
Considering abortion? Learn more about the abortion pill and your options in Maine. We provide information on medication abortions and free pregnancy services so you can make a fully informed choice.
your first steps
It’s your pregnancy, your future, and your choice. We care about you and want to empower you to make a fully informed decision. Before an abortion, there are several things you need to know.
Has your pregnancy been confirmed?
Even if you've had a positive pregnancy test, you will need an ultrasound to confirm the pregnancy, determine how far along you are, and rule out an ectopic or tubal pregnancy. Ultrasound can also confirm the occurrence of a natural miscarriage, which happens most frequently in first trimester. If you were to experience a natural miscarriage, you would not need to have an abortion.
Have you ruled out an STI or STD?
An untreated infection can cause major complications if not treated prior to an abortion.
Do you have any health conditions that could rule out a medication abortion?
The abortion pill is not an option for women with certain health conditions. Learn more about any possible restrictions and potential side-effects of medication abortions.
If you are unsure about the answer to any of these questions, we can help. Contact us today to make an appointment at Options in Rochester, NH.
