Hi Achiever2012,

In the past we have had questions about ways,to terminate a pregnancy and my response is always the same-- this is not up to you to do at home by trying medications that may or may not result in miscarriage or attempting home remedies. You have taken Cytotec which at worst can result in miscarriage, early labor, or birth defects. At this point you can do one of three things, you can choose to keep the baby and start taking care of yourself to have a healthy baby, you can contact a reputable abortion clinic and have an abortion, or you can go through your pregnancy and put up the baby for adoption. I do not know what the chances of the baby having a birth defect are-- sometimes there is no birth defect even though the mother took something she wasn't supposed to take during pregnancy-- this is a risk you were willing to take.

Please do what is best for you and that precious little one. And if you choose to terminate this pregnancy, let it be a hard lesson learned-- do not have unprotected sex.

Good Luck,
