Thanks for using healthcare magic.

I have gone through your available history.

Unripe papaya is not proved contraceptive or abortive agent. It may or may not help either to prevent or abort pregnancy.

She must consult gynecologist for evaluation and management.

If she does not want pregnancy then she should use acceptable method of contraception like barrior or contraceptive pills or contraceptive device. Your doctor will evaluate and can advise which method suits you most.
