Hello,
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out.

Medical termination of pregnancy(MTP) by pills(methotrexate,mesoprostol and mifiprestone) is effective only if pregnancy is less than seven weeks. Anytime past seven weeks requires surgical abortion.

Hence your girlfriend should consult a gynecologist and get an ultrasound done to chcek the gestational age. If it is less than seven weeks then she should get the medicines prescribed. In no condition an abortion should be done on your own. It should always be done under medical supervision to prevent any complications.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
