Doctor :   Let me read your query
Doctor :   First do confirm pregnancy
Doctor :   by doing an urine pregnancy test kit
Doctor :   Abortion up to 20 weeks in legal
User :   ok, lets say the test turns out postive..
Doctor :   But it is done only under the advise of an experienced gynaecologist
User :   what should we do?
Doctor :   There are different options
Doctor :   like pills
Doctor :   that you can take
Doctor :   then comes the surgical evacuation
Doctor :   "Medical abortions" are non-surgical abortions that use pharmaceutical drugs, and are only effective in the first trimester of pregnancy.
User :   can you suggest any pills for 1 month abortion?
Doctor :   When used within 49 days gestation, approximately 92% of women undergoing medical abortion with a combined regimen completed it without surgical intervention
Doctor :   I cannot suggest the name of the medicine without examining you
Doctor :   it has a lot of side effects to
User :   oh. does postinor 2 works in this case ?
Doctor :   postinor is an emergency contaception
Doctor :   Take 2 pills within 120 hours after unprotected sex.
Doctor :   But you cannot use that now
User :   it had no effects whatsoever now?
Doctor :   When did you take it
Doctor :   it should be used with in limited period of intercourse
User :   3 months ago.. but am planning to take it again now.. as the period had been missing for 40 days..
Doctor :   Medical Abortion is a form of early abortion caused by the combination of two medications, mifepristone and misoprostol that is an option for women who are 8 weeks pregnant or less. Also known as RU486 or medication abortion.
Doctor :   When used in combination, mifepristone and misoprostol are 95-97% effective within two weeks
Doctor :   But has a lot of side effects too
Doctor :   So an gynaec consultation is advised
User :   what kind of side effects known?
Doctor :   Upon taking mifepristone at the clinic you may begin to bleed. As each woman's body is different, bleeding varies from woman to woman. Some may experience light bleeding much like spotting towards the end of a menstrual period. Others have heavier bleeding like their regular menstrual period, or like a heavy period
Doctor :   very risky too
Doctor :   Upon taking the second medication misoprostol tablet, cramping, bleeding, and clotting may begin as soon as 20 minutes. Within the next 6 to 8 hours, most women will miscarry. Cramping may come in waves with increasing and decreasing intensity.
Doctor :   . You can expect bleeding heavier than a menstrual period with large clots. During this time, you will pass the embryo although you may not see it since it is very small. The amount of bleeding when using the Medical Abortion is greater than with aspiration abortion.
Doctor :   WWW.WWWW.WW
User :   oh my gof
Doctor :   A follow-up exam is scheduled for two weeks later to make sure the process is complete. If you have not yet miscarried, will have to undergo aspiration abortion.
Doctor :   Most of the side effects when using this early abortion option are caused by the second medication, misoprostol. Side-effects may include heavy bleeding, headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and heavy cramping.
Doctor :   Due to the risk of serious health problems, mifepristone and misoprostol may not be recommended if you are
Doctor :   # Have had a blood clotting problem or are taking anticoagulant medicine.
# Have severe anemia.
Doctor :   # May have an ectopic pregnancy.
# Have a mass in the tubes or ovaries.
Doctor :   # Have an allergy to mifepristone, misoprostol or other prostaglandin medicine.
# Have severe diarrhea.
Doctor :   you can choose to have a surgical abortion, in which the cervix is dilated and suction aspiration is used to remove the tiny pregnancy.
Doctor :   So with out examination pills will be dangerous
Doctor :   So get a near by gyanec dr and do it safely
