Terminate the pregnancy
Teenagers often feel that the pregnancy or the baby is not something that they want at this stage of their lives, and they want to terminate it as soon as possible. They are unfamiliar and uninformed about termination services, are desperate, and often end up having an illegal abortion that can be dangerous and even life-threatening. A legal abortion performed in a legal clinic by qualified medical personnel is a low-risk, safe procedure.
Mifepristone is an anti-progesterone drug. Progesterone is a hormone that is necessary to maintain the early stages of pregnancy. Without progesterone, the lining of the uterus breaks down, the opening of the uterus softens and bleeding begins.
However, the uterus needs to contract and expel the pregnancy tissue, hence the need for misoprostol. The earlier the pregnancy, the more successful the drugs will be.
It is essential to ensure that you are no longer pregnant.
