No: I would avoid as many exposures as possible, especially big ones like this. Of course, having an infestation is not a wonderful thing either.

Are there any safe natural home remedies that will help terminate a pregnancy?  I'm about 4 weeks along.

No: Fortunately, America is beyond that (that was before modern medicine and before getting rid of laws against inducing miscarriage). Any woman who needs to induce a miscarriage (easier to say abortion), such as if her early fetus has a genetic defect or other significant birth defect, can get help from her Ob-Gyn doctor. The doctor has good reliable ways to do this ("natural" is not in the picture). ...Read more

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. ...Read more

Motorcycling mothers: Do you have alternate means of transportation available to you such as walking, biking, or a public bus? It is dangerous in the sense that you have less protection than other motorized vehicles that travel at a high speed. Please be careful whichever means of transport you use.
