Brief Answer:
It is legal. Medicines available. Test first. Home kit available.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

There are home test kits to detect pregnancy. Drops of urine can be put and it would be indicated whether she is pregnant. It is possible to use post exposure hormonal pills to get rid of a pregnancy, if it has occurred. It is legal in XXXXXXX to terminate pregnancy before 20 weeks of pregnancy, provided that there are valid indications for the same. Of course, it has to be done with the approval of the female partner.
