What over the counter pills will work for an abortion?

Patient: What over the counter pills will work for an abortion? Is there a kit I can buy to do it myself?

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.Abortion can be done by pills. However, it is recommended to be done only under medic al supervision. You must first consult a gynecologist for an examination and investigations to confirm an intra uterine pregnancy by an ultrasound. Then if the period of gestation is within the range for a medical abortion, the doctor will prescribe the pills.If not done under doctor’s guidance complications like incomplete abortion and sepsis can happen.Hope this was helpful.Regards
