MP forte is not an abortion causing medicine. The best thing that you should do to abort an unwanted pregnancy at this stage is to consult a gynecologist and take advice. In early pregnancy, abortion can be easily done by medical means and there is less need to go for surgical intervention. So, do not try self medication as this is going to be harmful. Take care.

hello there..
Firstly i would want to know if your wife had a positve pregnancy test before taking the medication and if you got an ultrasound done before taking these tablets.
Two things before attempting a medical abortion (abortion using tablets) is to confirm the pregnancy by urine test , then know the site and size of pregnancy with ultrasound. As missing periods doesnt mean that one is pregnant as it could be due to other reasons. Also ultrasound is important prior to taking these medicines as its important to know if the pregnancy is in uterus and not extrauterine as they dont help pregnancies which are extrauterine rather harmful.Size of the pregnancy is also important as these medicines are not useful beyond 7weeks of pregnancy that is pregnancy should be less than 49days as it may lead to failed abortion or incomplete abortion if used after this period.

Besides the tablet you have mentioned is not a standard drug for abortion. What i know , it is an ayurvedic tablet to get periods and doesnot cause abortion in those pregnant.

Now since you have taken these tablets, and dint have bleeding, i would suggest you go for an ultrasound to know what is size of pregnancy, whether viable or not. Incase its viable , you can continue with the pregnancy bearing in mind risks involved to the baby due to intake of these tablets. But its your choice and if you dont want to continue , you should consult a gynecologist for a planned surgical abortion.

take care
