woman considering abortion pill

Getting an abortion prescription after a telehealth consultation is not currently legal in North Carolina. While many women with an unplanned pregnancy may consider receiving these medications by mail convenient, there are downsides to this option.

If you are facing an unexpected pregnancy, you are not alone! There are still options available to you.

Read this article for no-cost, confidential services to help you determine the best next steps and formulate a pregnancy plan you feel confident about.

Take A Pregnancy Test

Telehealth providers who prescribe abortion do not require a pregnancy test. Even if you’re unable to get the abortion pill by mail, make sure you take a pregnancy test instead of relying on common pregnancy symptoms like a missed period or nausea.

At Hope First, we offer free, medical-grade pregnancy testing and can help you calculate the best time to take the test for the most accurate results.

Schedule a No-Cost Ultrasound

Another important health screening if you’re pregnant is an ultrasound. This scan can give details such as the pregnancy’s gestational age, location, and viability.

Knowing the pregnancy’s gestational age can affect your eligibility for specific procedures, such as the abortion pill.

Confirming the gestational age can alert you to whether or not you have an ectopic pregnancy, which requires a procedure other than an elective abortion.

1 in 4 pregnancies ends in natural miscarriage, so making sure the pregnancy is still viable can also affect what options you may be considering.

At Hope First, we offer no-cost ultrasounds where you can get the information you need.

Next Steps

Whether you feel frustrated or overwhelmed, your feelings are valid. While mail-order abortion medications are not available in North Carolina, you still have several pregnancy options.

In addition to no-cost services such as ultrasounds and pregnancy tests, we also offer options for consultations where you can share your concerns, gather information, and connect to local resources in a pressure-free environment.
