ive heard tell of an "herbal abortion"
Check out these threads to find out exactly why trying this is a bad, bad idea:
or some type of pill u can take to induce miscarriage...
You may be thinking of the "abortion pill", RU-486, here. Check out this thread for more info:
But it's still something that needs to be prescribed and supervised by a doctor. And I'm not sure whether it's currently available in the US or not (US advos, help me out here? )
im just looking at options because i have been sexually active for a few months now and am always a bit worried about the "what if.."
In that case, your best option is to do your utmost to avoid the problem in the first place by combining two methods of contraception (e.g. condoms and the pill).
And in the unlikely event of both forms of contraception failing and you becoming pregnant - if you choose to have an abortion, then have a safe, legal, medical one.
yeah and my friend induced a miscarriage by drinking a lot of alchohol..
Another very bad idea, I'm afraid. As with other alleged methods for inducing a miscarriage, if it works at all it does so by poisoning your body so massively that it can't support a fetus. Not surprisingly, this can indeed cause you serious bodily harm.
And in fact, as far as I know drinking a lot of alcohol is more likely to result not in a miscarriage but a baby born with Fetal Alcohol Syndrome (which causes lifelong disablities).
