Brief Answer: DETAILS ARE GIVEN BELOW. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thank you for writing to us on Healthcare Magic. Medical abortion can be done successfully up to 7 weeks of gestational age with abortion pill. However, self administration of abortion pill is not recommended. It is NOT possible to detect the pill through common lab tests. But, you may present with adverse effect of the pill or features of abortion. The abortion procedure is associated with several risks and complications like nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramp, excessive vaginal bleeding, fainting etc. It can't be controlled by yourself at home. Therefore, I suggest to consult with local GYNECOLOGIST or Healthcare provider for safe termination. Supportive medication like pain killer, anti-emetic etc may be required to reduce the side effects. This process can be done at home if you consult once with local doctor as you require follow up examination after 2 weeks to confirm that the abortion is completed. One pelvic ultrasound scan may be required to check retained bits if any. Around 5% women needs D & C or suction (surgical method) to evacuate the uterine cavity. To summarize, you must contact with local gynecologist for emergency purpose and proper advice on follow up visits. Hope, it will be helpful for your information. Kindly, close the discussion, if I have answered your query. Wish your good health and take care yourself. Regards, Dr Soumen For future query, you can directly approach me through WWW.WWWW.WW
