Thanks for the query.
You should first confirm your pregnancy by urine test of pregnancy kit.
Once pregnancy is confirmed you can use abortion pill for the abortion.
This abortion pill comes by the name of MTP kit.
This MTP kit comes in a pack.
How to use MTP kit

Each pack contains 5 tablets - 
1 tablet of Mifepristone…200 mg 
4 tablets of Misoprostol, each containing Misoprostol…200 mcg

MTP Kit is indicated for the medical termination of intrauterine pregnancy up to 63 days of gestation. For purposes of this treatment, pregnancy is dated from the first day of the last menstrual period in a presumed 28 days cycle with ovulation occurring at mid-cycle.
The duration of pregnancy may be determined from menstrual history and by clinical examination. Ultrasonographic scan should be used if the duration of pregnancy is uncertain, or if ectopic pregnancy is suspected.
Any intrauterine device [“IUD”] should be removed before treatment with mifepristone and misoprostol begins.
The dosage is mifepristone 200 mg orally followed 48 hours later by misoprostol 800 mcg (4 tablets of 200 mcg) vaginally or orally.
Bleeding occurs 4 hours later and may continue for some time.
The patient should return for a follow-up visit approximately 14 days after the administration of mifepristone. This visit is very important to confirm by clinical examination or ultrasonographic scan that a complete termination of pregnancy has occurred.
In case of failure of complete termination of pregnancy by MTP kit,surgical abortion is done.

Since use of MTP kit of your own can cause problem,you should consult a gynecologist and get the termination of pregnancy done under her supervision.

I hope to have answered your query however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck

Is there any other way to avoid pregnancy in simple
Answered by Dr. Pavan Kumar Gupta 1 hour later
You did the intercourse in the most fertile period of the cycle.
You can do the pregnancy check now.
If pregnancy is confirmed,then you have only two choices for abortion,either medical with MTP KIT or surgical.
There is no other way now.

Any further query is welcome and if you are satisfied by the answer and nothing further to ask, you may please rate my answer and close this query.
