Thanks for the query.
Before going for termination of the pregnancy, you have to confirm the intrauterine gestational sac.
Sometimes pregnancy can occur in structures other than uterus like tubes, which is called ectopic pregnancy.
In that case if you take tablets for abortion sometimes rupture can occur.
Though it is rare possibility as it can cause surgical emergency better to consult gynecologist once and confirm intrauterine pregnancy.
After that with her advice you can go for termination.

Take care.

Welcome and thanks for the query

Medical abortion or abortion by taking pills is advisable when you are 15-20 days overdue by your last menstrual period.It may cause heavy bleeding if the duration of pregnancy is more than 30 days.The pills should be taken strictly under doctor's guidance.

Best wishes and good luck
