BPAS provides Pills by Post in very limited circumstances if you cannot leave the house because you are medically shielding, you may be eligible for abortion pill by post treatment if your pregnancy is under 10 weeks' gestation. Your suitability for this service will be assessed by a Doctor in NI who may refer you into a local treatment centre instead click here for details
