See details: Are you saying you want to have an abortion? You cannot cause a miscarriage by yourself without doing yourself major damage. See an obstetrician and discuss the issue.

Talk w/gynecologist: If you are pregnant but don't want to be, please discuss with your gynecologist. Please do not try to induce a miscarriage on your own. If you don't have such a physician, you can go to a planned parenthood clinic to get information and help.

Pregnancy loss: Most typically mean a loss of living pregnancy during the first or second trimester. Some also consider a stillbirth in the 3rd trimester a miscarriage.Sometimes the body expels the entire pregnancy with bleeding, at other times the fetus remains in the uterus and is only detected by ultrasound or absence of the fetal heart tones. Consult your md if you have these signs.

I agree with Dr Toppin. About 15% of first pregnancies are miscarriages (medical term is abortion). After 1-4 prior miscarriages the rate increases to 25-30%. The most common reason for miscarriage is an abnormal number of chromosomes (aneuploidy). About 1/500 women have recurrent miscarriage (2+) and need special tests to see why the problem recurs.

You can not: That is not possible. Please see your doctor and discuss your feelings about an unwanted pregnancy. There are many available options. Remember adoption is a beautiful option. There are thousands of couples on waiting lists praying for someone like you to come along.
