Abortion pill by mail
We are proud to offer medication abortion services through a virtual visit to qualifying patients in Washington state. Call us to find out if you qualify.
Abortion is very common.
It’s also very safe, and serious problems are extremely rare.
The caring staff at Planned Parenthood are experts at providing safe abortion and supporting you throughout the process. They can answer your questions, give you accurate information about all of your options, and offer non-judgmental support — no matter what you decide to do about your pregnancy.
If a medical abortion is right for you, here is what the process will look like.
Medication abortion means taking two pills. Our provider will mail these pills after your virtual visit, and they will arrive to your address in Washington within 2 - 3 days.
- The first pill, mifepristone, works by blocking the hormone progesterone, which stops your pregnancy from developing.
- The second pill, misoprostol, is taken up to 48 hours later, and causes cramping and bleeding that empties your uterus.
- For most people, the process takes about five hours, but may take up to 24 hours.
- You may be tired for a day or two afterwards, but you can go back to work or school the next day if you feel up to it.
Benefits of abortion via telehealth
Receive the same compassionate, non-judgmental care you've come to expect from the providers at Planned Parenthood without visiting a health center. When you receive telemedicine abortion care with us, you will always have a resource you can count on during the process, including hands-on follow-up care as needed.
Convenient & Private
Telemedicine abortion care is not only a safe method, but it also expands access to people who face barriers to care, like people living in rural areas, and people with low incomes. Now you can have your medication abortion somewhere you feel safe and comfortable, and decide who is with you or if you prefer to be alone.
As we navigate varied abortion laws across the US, we will see an increase of patients coming through our doors for care. Receiving abortion pills by mail via a telehealth appointment, improves our capacity to accommodate patients who must have an in-person visit for their abortion procedure.
