Today 17th June I am tested positive when did a test at home. Please suggest is it fine to go for an abortion right away. Do i need to go through the pain of doing several Ultrasound test doctors suggest or a simple BHCG test would do followed by abortion via pills.

If you wish to abort the child you may confirm if the pregnancy is 100% or not. That is done by Ultrasound. The work around is Serum Beta HCG levels now and after 48 hours. Generally they double if there is a pregnancy. You can go for abortion with pills prescribed by the doctor. Let the doctor monitor the process of abortion. All the abortions are not safe and 100% complete, hence need monitoring.

Next advise is to go for contraception instead of frequent abortions. Your doctor can advice you the right contraceptive method based on your needs.
