To qualify for the TelAbortion Study, you will need to meet all the same standard criteria as for an in-person medical abortion. These include:
- You are pregnant and want a medical abortion.
- You will be able to have all the necessary pre-abortion tests, receive the medications, and take the first abortion pill before you are 70 days (10 weeks) along in your pregnancy.
- You must not have any of the following conditions that could potentially make a medical abortion unsafe for you:
- an IUD (Copper-T, Paragard, Mirena) in your uterus now
- any problem with your adrenal glands
- any condition that affects the ability of your blood to clot normally
- inherited porphyria (a genetic blood disease)
- an allergy to the abortion drugs
- You are not using certain kinds of medicines that could interfere with any drugs administered during the abortion. These include anticoagulants (blood thinners) and steroids.
Based on the information you provide in the Video Evaluation and on the results of your ultrasound and other tests, the study abortion provider will make a final determination as to whether you qualify for a safe and effective medical abortion.
