Brief Answer:
Medical or surgical abortion

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand the concerns.
Pineapple is not a scientific method to abort the pregnancy.
You should consult an OBGYN specialist for proper examination to confirm the pregnancy, gestation and hence the abortion can be done medically or surgically. You can also confirm with urine pregnancy test at home.
If gestational age is less than 7 weeks, then you can go for medical abortion.
Hope you found the answer helpful.

Brief Answer:
No home remedies

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
There is no proven home remedies for termination of pregnancy.
In my opinion, you should discuss this scenario with your husband.
He will definitely support you and help in consultation with the doctor.
It is always advisable to take the medical abortion under guidance of an OBGYN specialist.
We, on this platform, do not prescribe drugs.
So, it is always better to get drugs prescribed after consultation with an OBGYN specialist.
