Delayed periods. Can ST Mom tablets be used for abortion? What is the dosage?

My wife is 39yrs of age and now her menstural days are limited to four instead of seven. She is now 08 days over her normal cycle. We are very careful about using precautionary measures. Though we are certain that it is only a matter of delay but at the same time worried weather she has got pregnant. Medically we cannot afford to have another baby as she cannot carry anymore. Please let me know if she can take S.T. Mom tablets? If yes! what should be the dosage. Regards

I appreciate your query.
If you are very particular about not having unprotected sex, chances of your wife conceiving are very low.
However, in order to take any form of medical abortion, you first need to confirm a pregnancy
Please perform a home ( HCG ) urine pregnancy test.
If it is negative, you have nothing to worry.
If positive, you still need to take medical abortion under supervision.
A gynecologist has to confirm the exact dates of pregnancy , and nature ( intrauterine or not ).
The dosage and precautions have to be explained in detail.
It is not something so casual that you can go for it over the counter.
Hope this guides you correctly.
