    A slice of papaya or a few pieces of pineapple can do no harm Earlier, when medical science was not so advanced, large quantities of papayas were used to cause abortion when a pregnancy was unwanted. Papaya does contain a little bit of ergometrine, a hormone used to induce labour. But to cause an abortion, one would probably need volumes of it.


    Many women have had safe pregnancies with a daily slice of papaya for breakfast to keep constipation at bay.
