Alternatives to Routine Follow-Up for Early Medical Abortion

This article reports on a study that evaluated the ability of women and their providers to assess abortion outcome without the routine use of ultrasonography. The results demonstrate that women and providers can accurately assess whether follow-up care is required after medical abortion without routine ultrasonography by reliance on women’s observations, a low-sensitivity pregnancy test, and clinical examination.
