    I've moved your post to the sexual health forum.

    Make an appointment and go and see your GP.

    It's too late to take the morning after pill, you can only take that up to 72 hours after unprotected sex and its likelihood of working is reduced after the first 24 hours. If you're sure you're pregnant then make an appointment to see your GP ASAP and you can talk through your options with them. They'll be much better equipped to help than us strangers on the Internet.

    When you go to your GP and tell them this, you will get a referral to an abortion service that will a) confirm that you are indeed pregnant, b) confirm you that you want to do this and c) talk about the options.

    Most women now go for the 'medical abortion' i.e. take a pill that causes a miscarriage, rather than the 'surgical abortion' option, but the abortion service will go through the pros and cons of each with you.

    You are most likely still very early on in the pregnancy so the abortion pill will be used. The pill is used for up to 9 weeks usually. You have to go to your GP or sexual health/family planning clinic and discuss it with them and they will refer you onto an abortion centre which could be a clinic or in a hospital. The referral should take no more than a fortnight I was told. I had to go to the maternity ward at my local hospital for mine. If you chose to go through the abortion then you will be given a pill orally one day and then told to come back to the clinic 2 days later when you'll be given more pills but these go up your vagina this time and then within 3 or 4 hours you will start bleeding and then you will be observed for a few hours further. If you have a negative blood type, you will also need a jab before you leave. I think it's to do with cross contamination of you and the embryos blood in case they were positive and you are negative.

    A number of replies have been deleted from this, but it looks like the OP bought some drugs from an unregulated website to induce an abortion herself.

    I hope this did not turn out as badly as it easily could have done - it is not a wise thing to do, especially as a safe abortion is free and relatively easy to obtain via the NHS.
