I have anemia, can I take the abortion pills?

If you have anemia with current symptoms of lightheadness, dizziness, fainting, shortness-of-breath or fatigue it is recommended you consult a physician prior to using the abortion pills. If your anemia is not symptomatic [1] and well-controlled, it is okay to use the abortion pills.
