Making a decision about an unexpected pregnancy is incredibly difficult. The first thing you need to know is that you are not alone, and there are people available to listen and support you, no matter what you decide.

Abortion pill cost varies greatly from state to state, so we’ll specifically address the abortion pill cost in Florida, what factors affect the cost, and how much you can expect to pay for this kind of procedure. The state of Florida also has specific laws regarding abortion that are important to be aware of so that you can remain as safe as possible.

What factors affect the cost of the abortion pill?

A medical abortion includes more than just the medications to terminate a pregnancy. There are also doctor’s visits, lab work, and follow up appointments that are necessary if you take the abortion pill. The state of Florida also requires all women receive an ultrasound prior to having an abortion, which Palm Beach Women’s Clinic can provide to you at no cost.

What happens if the abortion pill does not work?

If the abortion pill does not work and your pregnancy continues, or if there is anything left in the uterus following the abortion pill, you will need to pay for another abortion procedure, this time a surgical procedure, to complete it. The abortion pill fails approximately 2 to 8 percent of the time, with the higher 8 percent associated with taking the abortion pill later in pregnancy or past the 10-week gestation period.

How much does the abortion pill cost in Florida?

The cost of the abortion pill in Florida falls into the $500 range. There are often additional fees for follow-up antibiotics, moderate sedation, and a necessary injection if you have a negative blood type. If you’re thinking about the abortion pill, make sure to speak to your doctor about those additional fees prior to the procedure.

What do I need to do before taking the abortion pill?

Before scheduling an appointment with an abortion provider, take the following steps so you are fully informed about your pregnancy and able to make the healthiest decision possible for you:

1. Confirm Your Pregnancy

An at-home test does not medically confirm your pregnancy. At Palm Beach Women’s Clinic, we can offer you a no-cost ultrasound to confirm your pregnancy so you can start considering your options.

2. Know How Far Along You Are

The Abortion Pill is only available to women who are no more than 10 weeks along from the start of their last menstrual period. An ultrasound is the best indicator of how far along you are in your pregnancy.

3. Get Tested for STDs

Did you know that having an abortion with an untreated STD greatly increases your risk of contracting Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)? This disease can cause infertility, chronic pain, and other long-term complications. Get tested at a low cost at any of our Palm Beach County locations.

If you are or think you might be unexpectedly pregnant, Palm Beach Women’s Clinic is here to help with no-cost and low-cost medical care and support services. Schedule an appointment at one of four convenient locations in Palm Beach County.
