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. Obstet Gynecol. 2014 Jan;123(1):88-95.
