HI, thanks for using health care magic

The morning after pill (plan a or plan b) are not abortive agents. They work by delaying or preventing an ovum (egg) from being released from the ovary , they also irritate the endometrial lining to prevent implantation.
They are not effective in an established pregnancy and will result in an abortion.
You may want to consider visiting your doctor for advice on a safe procedure.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
