Abortion can be done with pills.
Thanks for posting your query.
If the pregnancy kit has shown two lines then the pregnancy is present. It is essential to have the pregnancy confirmed by a gynecologist before proceeding for abortion.
It must be exactly dated too.
Next, medical abortion pills are to be taken as per prescription and correct schedule that your doctor explains to you. It is possible till 49 days after the date of start of last menstrual period.
I can explain the general protocol to you, but again, taking them without consulting a doctor is not just illegal, but potentially life threatening.
Generally, 1 tablet of Mifepristone is taken orally.
24 hours later, 2 tablets of 200 mcg Cytotec are taken orally or vaginally followed by 2 more such tablets another 24 hours later.
After this procedure, bleeding and cramping might start within 24 - 48 hours, and continue for upto 2 - 3 weeks.
It is also vital to have a follow up ultrasound scan to check that the abortion pills worked and the uterus is empty, after 15 days of taking the tablets.
Failing to take these precautions , there are risks such as - infection, uncontrolled bleeding, retained products, undiagnosed ectopic pregnancy etc.
And if these steps are followed, the pills work in more than 95 % of cases.
I hope this answers your query.

Consulting a gynecologist is necessary.
Thanks for writing again.
The abortion in unmarried females is legal. There is no need to worry. She needs to consult a gynecologist before it is too late.
