Please advise on natural (herbal) abortion due to valid personal reasons.
Pregnancy test : Positive
Pregnancy stage: 2nd Week
Since I'm currently in UAE where abortion is banned and very strict, I am in despair and would like to know of any possibilty which might result in natural menstruations or miscarriage.
Please help :(

I'm sorry about your situation. I do not know of a "natural" or herbal abortion inducer, however there are sites on the internet that talk about this and these have been tried for years, since herbal remedies began I assume. I am just not knowledgeable about these and my understanding is they are not more than perhaps 50% effective. You could do a search on "natural abortion induction"
Misoprostol is a prostaglandin analog widely marketed as Cytotec and used to induce abortion but this is a prescription drug.
