Thanks for writing to us.

On positive pregnancy test, medical abortion can be done successfully with abortion pill under the guidance of gynecologist. However, self administration of abortion pill is NOT recommended due to associated complications like nausea, vomiting, abdominal cramp, excessive vaginal bleeding, fainting etc. You can't control them at home.

Therefore, I suggest you to contact with local doctor for prescription, direction of using the pill and in emergency as abortion process is associated with several risks. It CAN'T be managed without doctor consultation. It will be more helpful.

Post pill abortion, one ultrasound scan is required to check for retained bits of fetal or placental tissue. In that case, you may need to undergo D & C.

To summarize, I suggest you to consult with local GYNECOLOGIST or healthcare provider for safe termination of the pregnancy.

Hope, it helps for your information. Kindly, close the discussion of you don't have any other query.

All the best and good luck.

Hello Dear,

Thanks for your follow up query.

I understand your current situation. However, it is TOO LATE (almost 7 weeks) for successful medical abortion without doctor's consultation.

There is risk of INCOMPLETE ABORTION and heavy bleeding related complication. It CAN'T be managed at home. In emergency, you have to visit your doctor for next management. Surgical procedure (D & C) may be required for complete evacuation of uterine cavity.

Without clinical assessment, abortion pill can't be prescribed from the web. It is quite ILLEGAL in XXXXXXX

Hope, you should understand the fact. Good luck.

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for additional query.

If you have contacted with your gynecologist, then you can take MIFI KIT according to her direction.

You will get heavy bleeding within 12 hrs of taking the kit-medicine and continue for next 3 to 7 days until product is expelled out.

You should undergo one ultrasound scan 1 week after taking the abortion pill to check for retained bits or placental tissue. You must contact with your doctor.

Hope, it helps for you. If you have any other query, you can directly ask me and I will be happy to help you.
