Dear Lybrate user As far as possible first pregnancy should not be aborted since it may affect your future capability to conceive. however there are no legal issues involved if aborted before completed 3 months.

Yes it is legal to abort a baby till 20 weeks but we as doctors discourage abortion for 1st pregnancy. Think again before taking any step. Medical abortion is safe in most of the women and it does not require intervention using instruments which may lead to infections. Kit has 5 tabs and follow the instructions on it. Visit a doctor if bleeding does not stop after 10 days. Do think again, whether you want God gifted baby or want abortion. Later when you want a baby, you may not get it naturally and have to visit innumerable infertility clinics wasting money and time. Every intervention has its physical and psychological impacts & caution is the key for a healthy life. Take care.
