Frequently Asked Questions

What are missed period pills?

Missed period pills are for when someone is late for their normally regular cycle, and needs to manage their menstrual cycle by taking medication to induce their period. It can help people who may be too early to have a pregnancy test, or do not have access to a pregnancy test.

The pills are the same as abortion pills, but the person using them may or may not be pregnant.

So where do I start with buying abortion pills?

Start by going to "Book Now" in the upper right corner of this page. You can click on the service you need and the forms will direct you through the process. There is a video to watch and instructions to download that will answer many of your questions before you get to the point of making the appointment. Many people find that by the time they review everything in the process they don't need an appointment - this is fine. There is no requirement for an appointment - the option of one is for you in case you have medical questions.

If you have nonmedical questions, you can call and clarify them with a receptionist during business hours, the appointment scheduling is for medical concerns and questions only.

Will my insurance cover my visit?

We do not currently accept insurance for these services. We partner with several agencies that help us to assist patients who need financial help for any of these appointment types.

  • Abortion pills: $165 (financial assistance/sliding scale available, specify when filling out forms)

  • Missed period pills: $165 (financial assistance/sliding scale available, specify when filling out forms)

  • After-procedure follow up visit: $0 for patients who had their abortion at Metro Area, $40 if you had your abortion elsewhere. (financial assistance/sliding scale available, specify when filling out forms)

  • Birth control: $29 for forms-only, $40 for telehealth consult (financial assistance/sliding scale available, specify when filling out forms)

  • Post-pill purchase consult - $0 for patients who got their pills from Metro Area (since they paid in advance for the consult), or $80 if you bought your pills elsewhere.

Can I get a same-day appointment?

We schedule the next day and later, to give you time to complete the full consent and intake process before your visit.

However, if you want asynchronous only (forms and intake filled out, but no phone or video visit) we process your prescriptions the same day.

Do I have to have an appointment?

No! one of the unique and modern things about us is that you do not need an appointment.
