A medical abortion, also known as the abortion pill, is a serious medical procedure even when overseen by a health professional. Purchasing the abortion pill online adds to the risks women should be aware of before proceeding. 

Authenticity & Legality of Online Medications 

Despite what you may read, the FDA advises against ordering abortion pills online, especially from unregulated, overseas pharmacies.

When buying medication from online sources, especially websites not linked to legitimate medical organizations, there’s a risk of receiving counterfeit or even incorrect drugs. Not only can these be ineffective, but also harmful to your health.

Ohio state laws restrict residents from getting abortion pills in the mail. Buying the abortion pill online for self-use would bypass this legal requirement. You should also know that abortion is not currently legal in Ohio past six weeks of pregnancy, when a fetal heartbeat can be detected.  

Unidentified Health Risks

Medical abortion usually involves two drugs: mifepristone and misoprostol. These are taken in a specific sequence. Buying them online might mean bypassing necessary medical oversight. 

Not having an ultrasound, you would not know if you are beyond 10 weeks which could lead to an incomplete or ongoing pregnancy. Also, there’s a risk in not having a follow-up appointment with a doctor to make sure the procedure is complete without complications.

The process isn’t suitable for everyone. Certain health conditions or factors, such as the presence of an ectopic pregnancy or an IUD, can make taking the abortion pill dangerous. Buying the pill online bypasses necessary health checks that would usually identify these issues.

Taking The Next Step

It’s advisable that you seek a medical professional before you consider buying the abortion pill online given that all the associated risks are substantial.
