Brief Answer:
Regestrone do not helps in abortion

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.

Regestrone tablet do not helps in abortion.
It is used to to regulate the periods and induce the withdrawal periods.
For termination of pregnancy, medicine like Mifepristone and misoprostol are to be used.
These are to be taken under the guidance of a registered medical practitioner. Firstly pregnancy should be confirmed.

Hope you found the answer helpful.
