Hello and welcome to eHealth forum!

This is a personal and religious decision, but considering the circumstances, it is best to opt for abortion. Otherwise, you need to inform your parents about it. The best way to do is go for a dilatation and curettage. Vacuum evacuation can be tried before 7 weeks of pregnancy. If you do not want that then you can try a drug which contains a chemical called mifepristone. The best method through pills is a combination of mifepristone plus prostaglandin. Discuss this with the gynecologist.

I would suggest you consult a gynecologist if your pregnancy test is positive and not go for any pills on your own as they carry the danger of incomplete abortion and very heavy bleeding. A dose higher than the required dose can cause damage to the uterus too. So please do not self medicate. After the termination think in terms of inserting IUD or other such devices like Implanon or go for pills. Please consult your gynecologist. Hope this helps. Take care!
