Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query.

You have taken the pills for termination of pregnancy.
However, they must be taken only under the medical guidance of a doctor after confirming an intrauterine gestational pregnancy by ultrasound.

Chances of complications like ectopic pregnancy, severe bleeding, life-threatening complications can happen if no prior scan is done and pills taken without doctor's supervision.

We are not legally permitted to provide information about the medical termination of pregnancy.

Would suggest you to see a gynecologist immediately and get a scan done and ask for further management.

In case of severe bleeding or pain abdomen any time, Rush to the hospital immediately.
Hope this helps.
Regards
