Hi,
Welcome to XXXXXXX

One month pregnancy can be aborted by using drugs. Using the drugs abortion is possible till 49 days from last menstrual period.

Firstly progesterone receptor antagonist tablets are taken which causes the placenta to separate from the endometrium. It also softens the cervix and increases uterine contractions to allow the uterine contents to pass.

Second, dose of synthetic prostaglandin E1 (PGE1) analogue is given usually within 48 hours of progesterone receptor antagonist. It causes uterine contractions so that your body passes the uterine contents. The combination is is about 92% effective.

To rule out the chances of incomplete abortion on 15 th days USG should be done.

I have mentioned the class of drugs, not the names as it is not safe to consume by yourself. It is only given after prescription from physician and also should be taken under their supervision.

I advice you to discuss this with another Gynecologist doctor who can prescribe you medicine as this is not illegal to prescribe medicine at this stage. I am sure you will find one with little more effort.

Hope I have provided the information you needed.

Wish you good health. Take care.

Hello
Good to hear from you.
As the drug has its own complication like excessive bleeding which can be fatal as well, I cannot prescribe the drug without examining the patient. As advised above, it should be taken under supervision as certain complication like heavy bleeding, cramping etc can occur and should be addressed.
Again I advise you to discuss this with another gynaecologist and tell him/her about this group of drug. Also, tell them the situation your friend is in and I am sure they can help.
Hope I have cleared your queries. If you do not have any clarifications, you can close the discussion and rate the answer.
Wish you good health.

Again a advice you to see gynecologist and discuss about these drugs. You can ask your family doctor about a good one.
