Acceptability and feasibility of phone follow-up after early medical abortion in Vietnam: a randomized controlled trial

This study investigated the use of telephone follow-up combined with a semiquantitative urine pregnancy test and symptom checklist as a possible replacement for in-clinic follow-up after medical abortion. While telephone follow-up was very effective, the pregnancy test alone provided higher specificity in screening for ongoing pregnancy.
