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
