How can I know if the pills are real and not counterfeit?
Even if you ask for abortion pills by name, such as misoprostol or mifepristone, some medicine sellers may try to sell you counterfeit pills that won’t work and may delay you from having an abortion. Safe, effective abortion pills should be:
- The color white
- Pills or tablets, NOT capsules
- Packaged in an undamaged, double-aluminum blister pack, ideally
- Sold to you by a pharmacy or medicine seller you trust
- Not expired (an expiration date should be on the package)
