Thanks for posting your query

Regular abortion is not a good idea at all as it predisposes the uterus to injury, infection and trauma.

It can affect future pregnancies at times in some cases as it also causes disturbances in the normal hormonal levels.
If necessary kindly do it under Medical supervision as after taking the pills sometimes heavy bleeding can cause the patient to go in shock and also chances of infection/incomplete abortion are present.

Consider using regular contraceptive options as condom,pills, IUD for pregnancy prevention.

Hope this answers your query.I will be available for follow up if any.
