Brief Answer:
Not safe to to terminate (stop) pregnancy without consulting a gynecologist

Detailed Answer:
Hi & Welcome.
I can understand your concern.

Since the risk of severe bleeding, cramps or infection is very high, so it is not advisable for you to terminate the pregnancy at home. Hence, I would like to advise you to consult a gynecologist for your wish to not to continue pregnancy.

The gynecologist will do the proper clinical examination and an ultrasound scan be done. The duration of pregnancy should be confirmed by ultrasound and its location like it should be within the uterus. Pregnancy should be within 7 weeks and it should not be an ectopic (tubal) pregnancy.

The gynecologist will prescribe you a kit containing tablets of Mifepristone & Misoprostol
After taking full kit, abortion occurs anytime between 6 hours to 5 days.
This should be confirmed by doing an ultrasound scan.

Hope this answers your query.

Brief Answer:
Safe period is one week before and one week after the menses

Detailed Answer:
Hi & Welcome back.
Thanks for your reply.

Fertile period (UNSAFE FOR HAVING SEX) lies between 8th to 21st day of your menstrual cycle, counting from first day if you have a regular cycle of 28 days.
Days other than this are considered SAFE, that is, the 1st-7th day of the cycle and then again from the 22nd to the 28th day.
If your period gets delayed, then get the home pregnancy test done to rule out pregnancy.
Hope this answers your query.

i have had postmenopausal bleeding since Oct ( after not have my period for over 12 years) and had an uterine biopsy and pap smear. They were negative and my dr. stated that it is probably atrophy of the lining and she would not do any further testing. i asked if it could be polyps or fibroid s and she said that at my age I should leave it alone. I still have the symptoms and sometimes the bleeding is heavier than other times. How do I know if the bleeding can be attributed to a urinary issue or something else.

Hello. I m 32 years old and had my 4th c-section in December 2013, when I was told that my bladder is stuck to my uterus. Since my period started on Wednesday I ve been having some pain on the left side of my lower abdomen and at times it is so severe I can t stand up straight. When the pain subsides it leaves the area feeling quite sore and tender to the touch. Could this pain be related to my adhesions? I ve run a pregnancy test and that is negative. My GP is treating me for a UTI as there were a few white blood cells in my urine. I ve not been feeling quite right since my surgery and my wound was infected for a while and had to be cauterised. I can t tell what s related to my body recovering from pregnancy/surgery, or whether something else is going on.
