Im sexually active and only use the pull out method as contraceptive
Expert:  Dr. K. replied 2 years ago.

Well you should do a home pregnancy test. The pull out method as birth control is about 60 percent effective over time.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I did a home pregnancy test and it showed two lines. The test line was lighter than the control.
I had sex on 17 June and no period since then.... Perhaps it's been 6-7 weeks into pregnancy.... I can't tell my LMP because I had no menstruation in June. The last menses I had was 7 May. I did not have sex until 17 June.I want to do an abortion at home... Plz give your advice..
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I have no other symptoms of pregnancy.. No pain in breasts, no fatigue, urination is normal.
I hope it's safe time to abort...

It is too late based on your last period to have a medical abortion at home. Find your closest Planned Parenthood clinic for help

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
No.. I did not have sex after my last period on may 7... I missed my June period and then had sex on June 17
Expert:  Dr. K. replied 2 years ago.

I see Then not too late but you need the medication so will still need to find a clinic

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
They gave me Mifepristone + Misopristol tablets... 1 big tablet and 4 small ones. Asked me to take the big one tonight... Then I would experience cramps and bleeding... If not, then take two small ones tomorrow night.
And said that perhaps i would not need the third dose like most of the people. Is this OK?
Expert:  Dr. K. replied 2 years ago.

Yes That is the correct protocol

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Hope I'm in the time limit. Had sex on June 17 and taking the pill tonight on Aug 8....
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
What can I expect tonight after taking mifepristone?
N what after Misopristol?
Expert:  Dr. K. replied 2 years ago.

No You are too far past the time frame at which a medical abortion is safe and effective which is about 5 weeks past unprotected sex or 7 weeks past your last period. You need to consult a Dr in person

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
I had mifepristone and yesternight I had Misopristol. I had bleeding this morning but not too painful.. Just expelled some blood but no foetus. Bleeding is scanty now. Should I repeat Misopristol?
