I took some abortion pills.

I took some abortion pills on Tuesday evening but still no response..... This evening will make it 48hours yet I haven't seen anything. I'm so worried.

Editor's Comment

You cannot just take one lot of abortion pills. If you are having a medical abortion you take one pill to stop the pregnancy and then a second pill or vaginal tablets 48 hrs afterwards to expel the pregnancy. If you have only taken one lot of pills, you could still be pregnant, or the pregnancy could have been stopped but you have not expelled it.

It is important that you seek medical advice as you can get a pelvic infection which could cause damage.
