Mifepristone and Misoprostol

In case of pregnancy that has extended to more than 7 weeks, the combination of mifepristone and misoprostol is recommended for the termination of pregnancy. It is usually advised that the termination is done medically upon the advice of the doctor. But it can be done at home too.

How to use?

First you should take a dose of Mifepristone orally. This dose will separate the palcenta from endometriuem. It will also soften the cervix. It induces uterine contraction so that the contents of the uterine are allowed to pass with urine.

After taking Mifepristone, you will need to wait 48 hours and then take a dose of misoprostol. You can take the misoprostol dose by orally or vaginally. Depending upon the dose of misoprostol and the route through which it has been given, it can be taken after 6 hours of mifepristone as well. It is also sometimes recommended that the misoprostol is taken buccally (keeping it between the cheek gum to let it dissolve and then rest of the contents to be swallowed). After the misoprostol, the pregnancy will be terminated just like a miscarriage at home.

The success rate for this combination of tablets for abortion is very high. Although it can be used for terminating the pregnancies that have lasted for about 9 weeks, but it has 92% success rate for pregnancies up to 7 weeks.

How it works?

This type of abortion is very similar to miscarriage. Therefore, you will have the symptoms that are similar to miscarriage which include severe cramping in addition to vaginal bleeding. But if the bleeding lasts longer than 12 hours, or clots are the size of a golf ball, you should immediately contact a doctor.
