Not sure: Not sure what pills you're talking about. Never take anything without prior consulting your doc. Always keep in mind that abortions are not just harmless quick and easy ways out of unwanted pregnancy. It carries a great deal of psychological trauma and physical consequences, so before you commit to something like that, think twice at least.

A 41-year-old member asked:
Is it safe to take abortion pills at home if im in 4weeks pregnant?

Depends: Were you prescribed the abortion pills by a clinic or doctor? If so, yes, you can take them at home. I'm assuming you were given Mifepristone and misoprostol. Doctors sometimes have different regimens as far as timing of these 2 medications. But you don't have to take them in the doctor's office, if that's your question.
