An abortion that failed

I did an abortion when I was 12 weeks and it failed. I'm now 8 months and still pregnant but I wonder if my baby is still in a good and healthy condition.

Editor's Comment

I am wondering where you had your abortion as most hospitals and clinics have a follow-up appointment to check everything is completed. Perhaps you used some medication you bought from the internet? If this is the case you should go to your doctor or to a health professional for antenatal care. Tablets that are bought off the internet may not be reliable either in the strength of dose, or the hormone actually used as there is no regulation. We would not advise people to try and access abortion in this way.
