Hello,
Thanks for posting your query on health care magic.

Since you are on MALA-D, less likely you are pregnant.
However, its always better to rule out pregnancy before taking tablets for induction of periods.

Following are my recommendations.:
1. Purchase a urine pregnancy kit from pharmacy- velocit kit/ I-sure.
2. Do a home pregnancy test tomorrow early morning on first voided urine sample.
3. If pregnancy test is negative, you can take tablet Norgest 5mg thrice daily for 5 days to induce periods.

Hope this helps. Feel free to ask for further clarifications. I will be happy to help.
regards,
Dr Nilofer

Hello,

Good you got your pregnancy test.
Since you are already 8 weeks pregnant, you cannot use medicines for abortion.
Medicines will act only till 7 weeks.
So, i suggest you to go for surgical suction evacuation or D& C procedure.

Norgest cannot be used when you are pregnant.
It induces periods only if you are not pregnant.

Hope this helps. Feel free to ask if you have further doubts.
regards.
