Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
It is not safe to go ahead with abortion without assistance of your treating doctor/gynecologist. If pregnancy is confirmed, go ahead with visiting your doctor/gynecologist for further evaluation (to see if there are any contraindications for prescribing you the medications). You should be in constant supervision and monitoring of your treating doctor/gynecologist if the medication for MTP is prescribed to you (as uncontrolled bleeding and side effects can become life threatening).
Take care.
