Brief Answer:
Earlier the better.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
If you want to terminate the pregnancy it is better to terminate the pregnancy as soon as possible. Earlier the better and lesser will be the complications.
You can get it terminated with the help of medicines if it is less than 7 weeks duration. This you need to confirm after an ultrasound scan.
in case it is more than 7 weeks then surgical procedure- D&C will be needed.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.
