Is there a such thing as a natural abortion?

Asked by anai310 (17points) August 10th, 2010

I’m 17 years old and haven’t had my period in about a month. I really want to know if there is any way to make my period come down without having to go to the doctors and paying a fortune for an abortion.

Go to the store and buy a pregnancy test. We all hope it says no.

I did that, I took two and one said positive and one said negative…

Go to a clinic. You need to find out, either way.

My gosh, definitely go to a clinic. They can discuss your options with you.

Don’t be foolish and try to do something at home.

Go to planned parenthood. Depending on your state laws, you may or may not need a parent to be there with you.
Here’s a link about each states laws

I agree with the others, you need to go find out for sure either way. Wether it’s positive or negative, use this experience as a lesson to be a bit more cautious with your sex life. If it’s positive, they can discuss your options with you. An abortion is a medical procedure to end the pregnancy, it is not something you can do yourself. Taking drugs/medications or physically harming yourself would cause you to miscarry, which would be quite a bit different from an abortion. Either way, you would need to see a doctor about it to be sure that things are completely taken care of (meaning that the pregnancy is over and that the fetus is completely gone). Otherwise, there could be serious complications for you.

Go to planned parenthood – sometimes, depending on a couple of things, you don’t have to pay the full amount. At the very least, buy a third test, take it again, and see what it says.

Now, I want to stress something to you: If you are pregnant, DO NOT – I repeat, DO ABSOLUTELY FUCKING NOT try to take care of this on your own. It is, medically speaking, one of the stupidest things you could do to yourself.

All of the above answers make sense. Many early abortions these days are so-called medical (rather than surgical) abortions using the drug mifepristone. Planned parenthood and doctors’ clinics have access to this medicine, and also provide counseling regarding safe sex and options/support for continuing with the pregnancy.

I know this won’t stop you but I have to say it. Please don’t kill your kid.

You probably kill more bacteria washing your hands everyday than aborting a few fetus cells.

It’s called a miscarriage.

Before you panic about being pregnant, “about a month” is not necessarily enough time before your next period starts. Even the most regular woman can have changes in her cycle as her body changes.

If you have been sexually active, even if using some form of birth control, I suggest you take the advice of those that say invest in a home-pregnancy test ASAP. Keep in mind that sometimes they can be inaccurate, so also “listen” to what your body is telling you.

Should you find out that you are pregnant, then please seek out an adult that you trust. Preferably, it would be one of your parents, but sometimes it feels safer to initially discuss this with someone else.

Go to Planned Parenthood, have them do a pregnancy test, and if you are pregnant they can prescribe you the abortion pill, Mifepristone (aka RU486).
