Thanks for your query at XXXXXXX

I think your wife has been pregnant for more than two months.

It is not advisable to terminate pregnancy with medicines at this stage. Mifeprin kit has side-effects. The chances of getting an abortion at this stage is low. Fetus may not expel after termination, as it's size will be big by now. The chances of excessive bleeding are increased and the woman may develop hemorrhage and shock.

At this stage, only surgical termination of pregnancy can be undertaken by a specialist. The procedure is called as dilatation and curettage. It is safe and has minimal after effects. It is also advised not to delay the procedure further, if you have decided about abortion.

I hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
