Is papaya used for a natural abortion?

hello doctor,
Subject : Unwanted pregnancy (4 weeks)
I know that for the above subject i should consult doctor first.
but i request you to solve one query. Some people consumes papaya, vitamin c to terminate pregnancy ( i know this is not the correct method) but if done so is there any possibility that it could result into partial abortion which may push the woman to some dangerous situation which can lead to even death of her ???
I'm basically interested in NATURAL abortion (miscarriage)

Hi,
Thanks for your query.
You know you should consult a gynecologist first for abortion and know the consequences of this then why you want this knowledge?
Yes, Papaya and vitamin-c in high doses may cause abortion but it may be an incomplete abortion as you say and it may be dangerous also.
You should consult a gynecologist for this problem and get your ultrasonography done.
GOOD LUCK.
take care.
