Well, I would keep the abortion option as a last of all possibilities. Of course that there are some other ways to induct a miscarriage. The magic word is- The Abortion Pill! The Abortion Pills are a form of early abortion caused by the combination of two medications, mifepristone and misoprostol. It is the option for women who are 8 weeks pregnant or less. The precise mechanism is that these medications block the hormone progesterone needed to maintain the pregnancy. But there are several possible side effects of these pills such as heavy bleeding, headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and heavy abdominal cramping.
