Hello. I'm a college student and may be pregnant. It has been 2-3 weeks since the sex. How can I induce a miscariage/abortion safely and cost effictient? I heard working out a lot works and consuming a lot of vitamin C via oranges and orange juice. Will this work? If not, how can i do it cost efficiantly? I am 5'4" and 145 lbs. I'm also diabetic.

Hello dear,
I understand your concern.

In my opinion the termination of pregnancy can be done by medical and surgical methods depending on the age of pregnancy.

The medical method can be tried upto 7 weeks of pregnancy and after 7 weeks surgical methods are advisable.

Anyway as per your information your pregnancy is not yet confirmed.

So first the pregnancy need to be confirmed by doing a urine pregnancy test.

The urine pregnancy test needs to be done a week after missed period for accurate results.

The pregnancy can be diagnosed early before the expected date of the period by doing a blood HCG test.

So plan for termination only after confirmation of pregnancy.

And the termination needs to be done only under doctor supervision to avoid complications.

There is no definite data that natural methods as you mentioned will induce the abortion.

So relax and avoid stress.

Hope this helps.
Best regards....Dr.Srilatha
