Abortion pills can only be taken under supervision.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear,
Thanks for trusting hcm about your health care.
I can understand your concerns.
The abortion pills can only be taken under supervision of an expert or a doctor.
Sometimes it may cause severe bleeding, incomplete abortion and infection.
It can be taken up to 49 days of your pregnancy.
Before taking the pills you should go and get your ultrasound scan done to see the exact week and site of pregnancy.
Hope it is useful, feel free to ask more questions.
Good luck.
