Hello Vidula,

Welcome on hcm.
Why do you so untrust on your treating doctor?
Always make a practice not to stop taking any medicine without taking permission from your treating doctor or if doctor advice so.
I think you are prescribed this medicine for your habit of abortion so they have to be taken till 9th month.
They are here to help you not to kill you.

Thanks
