HI,THanks for your Query.first do pelvic ultrasound to confirm your weeks of pregnancy.if it is within 7weeks you can take MTP kit after consulting your gynaecologist.Norethisterone tab never affect abortion process,MTP kit bring abortion in 98% of patients.some time it may produce incomplete abortion and continuation pregnancy which need surgical curetage.so consult your gynaecologist and take this tab.Take care.

HELLO THERE.

THANKS FOR WRITING.

NO, NORETHISTERONE HAS NO ROLE IN ABORTING PREGNANCY. IT JUST INDUCES PERIODS WHERE THERE IS NO PREGNANCY.

BEFORE TAKING ANY TABLET LIKE MTP KIT FOR ABORTION, YOU NEED TO GET AN ULTRASOUND TO KNOW THE SIZE AND SITE OF PREGNANCY. THIS IS BECAUSE TABLETS ARE EFFECTIVE ONLY WHEN PREGNANCY IS INSIDE UTERUS AND LESS THAN 7 WEEKS SIZE.

BESIDES YOU NEED TO CONSULT A GYNECOLOGIST BEFORE USING ANY TABLET FOR ABORTION. THIS IS BECAUSE NO ABORTION PROCEDURE BE IT TABLET OR SURGICAL IS TOTALLY SAFE.
RISKS OF EXCESS BLEEDING, INCOMPLETE ABORTION, SEPSIS AND SHOCK CAN OCCUR.

SO YOU NEED TO BE UNDER SUPERVISION OF A DOCTOR BEFORE YOU GO FOR ANY ABORTION PILLS.

I HOPE I HAVE ANSWERED YOUR QUERY.

TAKE CARE.

Hi,
Thanks for the query.

Norethistrerone will not affect the process of abortion.
But before going to take the tablets for abortion to have to consult the gynecologist and undergo ultrasound to confirm the intrauterine pregnancy and to exclude the ectopic pregnancy.
Then only with her advice you can go for medical termination.

Take care.
