Hello, and I am pleased to help, use of my answers are for educational purposes only.

Dr. Owen :

You can get prescriptions for these at any Planned Parenthood -

JACUSTOMER-n075zem0- :

ok but what if she isn't present

Dr. Owen :

Just tell them you want to do a Medical abortion - you will get a prescription for both Mifepristone - and cytotec

JACUSTOMER-n075zem0- :

Can I get them for her?

Dr. Owen :

Well if they ask to do a pregnancy test you will need a positive pregnancy test.

Dr. Owen :

You can always call - these are prescription - not 'controlled' like narcotics are

JACUSTOMER-n075zem0- :

She lives in Costa Rica and can't come to the us...

JACUSTOMER-n075zem0- :

USA*

JACUSTOMER-n075zem0- :

ok i guess my best bet it to call planned parenthood and get information from them

Dr. Owen :

Well if you are getting these medications the only way to get them is with a prescription

Dr. Owen :

Planned parenthood essentially prescribe MOST of these medications in the US

JACUSTOMER-n075zem0- :

Dr. Owen :

I do not know that - you will need to ask them

Dr. Owen :

and explain the situation

Dr. Owen :
