Urine pregnancy test should be done

Hi dear,
I have gone through your question and understand your concerns.
Sometimes, there may be failure of contraception leading to pregnancy.
Delayed periods can be due to pregnancy or stress.

Brief Answer:
Confirmation of diagnosis must

Detailed Answer:
Hi dear,
Drug to induce periods and to terminate pregnancy are entirely different, and work for the appropriate condition.
The abortion drug will not work if there is no pregnancy and the period inducing drugs will not act in pregnancy.
Therefore, it is must to confirm pregnancy before taking any medicine.
If you cannot go for urine test, then you can go for blood beta hCG levels, which will also confirm pregnancy.
