The State of Kentucky requires a face-to-face consent 24 hours before your procedure. This consent can take place in-person at EMW or by video consent via your computer or smartphone. For information can be found here.
A medical abortion is another safe and effective method for early abortion. The medical abortion is used up to 9 weeks of pregnancy. A medical abortion uses two medications to end a pregnancy. The first is mifepristone and it weakens the attachment of the pregnancy to the uterus. The second is called misoprostol and it makes the uterus cramp and causes bleeding. This expels the pregnancy.
Medication abortion services include ultrasound, urinalysis, Rh blood type, complete blood count, and physical exam. Counseling services are also included and consist of medical informed consent, individual pre-abortion counseling, and contraceptive counseling and prescribing.
• If you are planning on having the medication abortion you do not need a driver.
