At Illinois Abortion Clinics pregnancies under 10 weeks in gestation as confirmed by an ultrasound are eligible for the series of medications referred to as a medical abortion. An ultrasound is used to confirm the actual pregnancy measurement and gestation period.
We do not dispense the Abortion Pill online, at least one office visit with the physician and a follow up is required with the Abortion Pill. There is a small chance that the procedure will not be complete with the medication alone (as confirmed by ultrasound) and in the event of an incomplete abortion, or excessive bleeding a D&C will be need to be completed.
A medical abortion or the Abortion Pill is not the same as emergency contraception, which is often referred to as the morning-after pill or Plan B. Emergency contraception prevents pregnancy and can work for up to five days after unprotected sex; medical abortion terminates an early pregnancy.
