Brief Answer:
Consult with a gynecologist

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query,

I have read through your query and Primolut n is not a medicine given for abortion. Primolut contains progesterone hormone which is a necessary hormone during the initial stages of pregnancy and therefore, taking this will instead support in continuing your pregnancy.

I would sincerely advice that it is best and safe for you to consult with a gynecologist and confirm an intrauterine pregnancy with help of a scan and then proceed further.

The medicines to be taken for abortion cannot be prescribed online and has to be taken under the supervision of a gynecologist.

I hope I have answered to your query.

Please feel free to discuss further or else kindly close and give your feedback.

Hi again,
Thanks for writing back,

I can certainly understand the amount of stress and your concern now,

What I have suggested for you is always the best and the SAFE option for you as your health is of utmost importance as you are not planning to continue the pregnancy.

One of the main pre-requisite is to do an ultrasound to check if the gestational sac is in the uterus. Only then we can proceed with the MTP kit. If the sac is located elsewhere other than the uterus, it will have serious complications on your health.

Once it is confirmed that it is located in the uterus, you can directly proceed with MTP kit. The medicines present in the MTP kit does not guarantee complete abortion and therefore, if any remains of the fetus stays withing the uterus, then a surgical abortion has to be done. Therefore, it is always mandatory to consult with a gynecologist in your area and proceed further.

Also in order to check for complete abortion a repeat scan should be taken.

I hope I have made myself clear to you,

Kindly revert back for any further queries.

Hello again,
Thanks for writing back,

I am really sorry to hear about what happened to you,

But let me just tell you that you should not be disheartened and lose all hope. Please do not be stressed out and do acts of hurting yourself.

I would suggest you to do the following since you feel you are not ready for this pregnancy:

- go for a scan after a week's time
- once the presence of a gestational sac is seen in the uterus, you can discuss with your treating doctor and ask for prescription for MTP kit.

- also no natural remedies are safe and reliable for abortion in your case

- meanwhile, be calm and patient till you are in your 6th week and do not take any actions to hurt yourself.

- also, options for abortion available are- medical abortion- which can be done till 8-10th week and surgical abortion- which is the only option after that.

- anyhow, whatever decisions your treating doctor makes will be for your good health and safety.

I hope I have answered to your query,

Please keep me posted with your further details..

Hi Doctors,

I am 29 year old, 5.4, 67 kg. married since a year and trying to conceive. I have been tracking my periods since a year this is the status -
I have skipped my periods for a month if I do not take Primolut N tablets. Hence, I have a tendency to take 5 tablets to induce periods regularly on a monthly basis. Last period that I got on tablets was 14th April 2011. Then I stopped the tablets and started herbal medicine (Angus Castus). Checked my ovulation using OPK and also monitored my cervical mucus. Got ewcm on 13th May morning, hence we had unprotected sex on 13th May night. I must highlight that my LH hormone was not high enough to be detected on OPKs as I would get only faint lines, hence went with the more traditional method of ewcm.

I have not got my periods since 14th April. I took hpt at 14dpo, 18dpo and 20dpo – considering 13th May as my day of ovulation. I have got –ve hpt, but ever since 13th may, I have experienced sinus problems, feel more tired than normal pms, feel tingly sensation on my lower abdomen, feel constipated, want to sleep all the time.

I am in UK and I approached my GP who suggested FMU to be tested. I have a history of cystic ovaries (as a child since I got my periods at the age of 11 – I was in India at that time). Its hard to get hold of gyno here and I am unable to convince my GP to get my harmones checked and do sonography to check my cysts (if I have them). GPs here tend to follow a process and unless I do not tick all boxes for their procedure, I will not get appointment with the gyno.

Sorry about the long story – but please can you help me. Much Much appreciated. Many Thanks!
