Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I understand your concerns.

Following is my reply:

1) Taking these abortion pills without doctor's supervision can be life threatening.

2) You need to undergo an ultrasound scan to check if the pregnancy is intrauterine and not ectopic.

3) If this process is illegal, you should not risk your life for it. It is advisable to consult a doctor.

4) As per what you have described you seem to have aborted. Wait and repeat pregnancy test after a week. As of now nothing else can be done.

Let me know if you need anymore help.

Dear Dr XXXXXXX

Thank you so much for your kind response, i feel a bit hopeful.

Here its so bad that discussing it no one is ready to listen to you, you are treated as if you are a criminal, i have suffered all kinds of body pains, one more question , if its an ectopic pregnancy, will the drugs still work on it?. or that is a different matter entirely?.

i have this discharge that comes with odor and then just this afternoon i went to urinate and saw some blood again. besides sitting down to wait which is killing me , is there any home remedy i can try?. something i can take ?. i have mild High BP, on Saturday my BP was 150 (very high), am a bit panicky as am really scared to death.

any other advise will be helpful please.

thanks lot,

OB

Hi,

ectopic pregnancy is an entirely different matter.

Since you are bleeding your abortion seems to be completed.
