Question: My period date is due from last 15 to 20 days of regular date. I have taken a pregnancy kit today which indicates i am pregnant. I don't want a baby right now because of personal problems as i am 19 years' teenager. If I am at early stage of pregnancy, can i not get pregnant? By some medicines or some eatable things? Please guide me nd help me for miscarriage or abortion. Thank you

Brief Answer:
Yes! You can take abortion pills.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for writing to us.

You can first go to gynaecologist and get your examination and ultrasonography test done to find out the exact duration and site of pregnancy. Then you can take abortion pills under strict supervision of an expert.

Another method to terminate pregnancy is surgical method.

But in your case medical abortion pills will do.

I think I have answered your query if you have further options I will be happy to help you.
Good luck.

Hello.
Thank you for answering me.
But i have some more problems. Right now I am in USA. I don't have medical insurance or anything. If I go further for the tests which you have suggested me it might be costly. Can you suggest some more safe and cheaper way which not includes sonography or other tests? Isn't it affective to eat papaya, dates or sesame seeds and wait for some more days to getting my periods? Does that create any problem for me. I should wait or not?

Brief Answer:
You should not wait.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for writing to us.

I can understand your problem but abortion can be done by two method medical and surgical. You can do one thing you can take abortion pills under supervision of an expert.

I am not sure if papaya and other things will work or not.

Please do not wait further, you should go for it as early as possible. Why do say you are not pregnant? Your pregnancy test is positive. So please take pills as early as possible.

Hope this information is helpful to you, feel free to ask more.
Good luck.

Hello doctor.
Thanx for replying me.
I went to one of the nearest doctor. As he was not there, his nurse checked me out by touching my lower stomach and she was telling me that I am pregnant near about of 3 weeks. She is giving me an appointment on thursday of next week, which means i would have been completed by 4 or 5 weeks at that time.

Is abortion possible by medical method after 4 weeks? I have read it somewhere that after 4-5 weeks abbortion is not possible by medical method. Is it true? Should I request them to give me an appointment by XXXXXXX to XXXXXXX this tuesday or before that?

Please write me soon.
Thank you.

Hi,
Nice to see you.
No, it is not true that medical abortion not done after 4 weeks. it can be done upto 49 days but it is true as I have already said that as early as good.
If it is possible then take your appointment on Tuesday otherwise go on Thursday.
I think this is useful information to you.
Please feel free to ask further questions.
