Brief Answer: Possibility of pregnancy should be ruled out Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for the query. First the possibility of pregnancy should be ruled out. So, let her once undergo blood test for pregnancy. If the test comes negative, the possibility of pregnancy is less. And she can continue the tablets as prescribed by your doctor. If the test comes positive, PrimulotN tablets will not help in inducing abortion. So, in case of positive pregnancy test, she has to undergo ultrasound once to confirm the intrauterine pregnancy and to estimate the gestational age. Then according to the gestational age, you can choose the method of abortion with your doctor's advice. Hope I have answered your query. I will be available to answer followup queries. If you are satisfied with the answer, please give your review at the end of the discussion. Take care.
