No harm: There is no harm taking the abortion pill. The success rate of the abortion pill is higher the earlier the pregnancy. I would recommend going to your provider to see if you are pregnant and it is in the uterus. After that you can decide on your options. Good luck.

The harm: The greatest harm is from not knowing. If you are pregnant , you are loosing the chance for taking emergency contraception. All methods of contraception including abortions are safer than a term pregnancy but the fist thing to do is do the test so you will know if you need to make this decision. Then, if it is negative, start a reliable method of contraception so you don't have to go through this
