  • About Mifepristone
  • The FDA approved new Mifeprex label with what
    research shows is safest and most effective.
  • Using Mifepristone is a self-induced early
    medical abortion procedure.
  • People purchase mifepristone and misoprostol
    online or elsewhere to discontinue an early
    pregnancy.
  • The medication combination is an option to an
    aspiration abortion.

  • Its Mechanism
  • The Mifeprex abortion pill blocks the action of
    the progesterone hormone that is vital to
    maintain a pregnancy.
  • This causes the uterine lining to break down,
    which ends the pregnancy.

  • Changes made by FDA to mifepristone label
  • According to the old label, the drug could be
    taken up to 49 days, however as per the new
    label, it can be taken up to 70 days after a
    womans last menstrual cycle.
  • The new label had lowered the dose of the pill
    too, that is from 600mg to 200mg.

    contraception) is used to prevent pregnancy from

    pregnancy.
