Brief Answer: EXPLAINED BELOW Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for writing to us with your health concern. Primolut contains progesterone. It cannot be used in any way to terminate a pregnancy. Pills such as Mifepristone and Misoprostol can be used to terminate an early pregnancy, upto 7 weeks, quite safely ( eg. MTP kit ). However, you have to follow certain steps and precautions. Consultation with a gynaecologist is a must. THe pregnancy must be confirmed and accurately dated by the doctor, and the pills must be taken in the correct dosage and manner as prescribed. A follow up visit after 15 days is a must to have an ultrasound scan and document that the uterus is empty and abortion is complete. Otherwise, there are grave risks such as undiagnosed ectopic pregnancy ( pregnancy outside the uterus ), infection, severe bleeding, incomplete abortion etc. All the best. Please feel free to discuss further.
