Hello there.

The first step is to confirm your pregnancy. You can do a urine test for pregnancy.

If test is positive, you need to take up an ultrasound before you take a decision of termination.
This is because at times its not a normal pregnancy and could be an ectopic pregnancy (outside uterus) or a molar pregnancy (abnormal placentation tissue). In both these conditions, abortion does not help.
Thus confirming the site, size and type of pregnancy is a must before taking an abortion.

The drugs for abortion can be life threatening if used as self medication.
So I strongly recommend you to take them under supervision of a gynecologist which is possible only if you consult for the same.
This would be the easiest and safest method for you. Leave it on the doctor and not on yourself.

take care.
