WASHINGTON, DC — To increase access to those in the region in need of abortion, Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington, DC (PPMW) is now offering medication abortion at-home services. Available to those with an address in DC, Maryland, or Virginia, this care is offered up to eight weeks and six days after the start of a person’s last menstrual period. PPMW  is just the second Planned Parenthood affiliate in the nation to offer this at-home care. COVID has made accessing abortion more urgent and our providers are primed to deliver this service. In the wake of restrictive laws like S.B. 8 in Texas, the flexibility of at-home abortion is particularly helpful to those who might encounter difficulty scheduling an appointment at one of our health centers. 

After an initial phone screening, patients meet with a PPMW provider online. The medications are then mailed in a discrete package to a patient’s address or can be picked up at one of PPMW’s health centers in DC, Gaithersburg, MD, or Suitland, MD. After the medications are taken, PPMW follows-up with patients — via a phone call a week later followed by a home pregnancy test in four weeks or with an ultrasound or blood test at the health center — to make sure the procedure was successful.

PPMW is committed to providing safe, accessible, and culturally sensitive care to all of our patients,” said Dr. Serina Floyd, Medical Director, Planned Parenthood of Metropolitan Washington, D.C. “With this expansion in medication abortion services, patients are able to connect with a provider in ways that are comfortable and convenient. Medication abortion at home provides the same excellent level of care that Planned Parenthood is known for.

The cost for medication abortion at home including the medications and follow-up is $525. Financial assistance is available to help cover the cost of care. Services are available in both English and Spanish. Patients can learn more or schedule an appointment at 202-347-8512.
