This study assessed the efficacy and acceptability of extending outpatient medical abortion in Mexico City through 70 days’ LMP (one week beyond standard outpatient provision). The overall success rate was very high, and the difference in success between women in the 9th week of pregnancy and women in the 10th week was not statistically significant.
