What happens when you go to get abortion pills?
Many females can resume their normal lives at

have period-like pains and some bleeding. It is
unlikely that the pregnancy termination will
take place after taking the first pill.
How do you take Misoprostol/Cytolog
prostaglandin analogue?

vaginally and hold them there for 20-30 minutes
until they dissolve. In case, the pregnancy has
not been ended three hours after using the
second set of pills and bleeding, you need to
take 4 more pills of misoprostol.

Many women don't feel anything after taking
Mifepristone and usually begin bleeding and
cramping after 1 to 2 days after taking
Misoprostol but some women may feel light
abdominal pain and bleed earlier than this.

In majority of cases, Misoprostol will have an
effect within 4 hours and you will begin bleeding
and cramps. The symptoms (blood loss, pain,
nausea, diarrhea, etc.) can last for up to 12
hours but should reduce when the pregnancy
termination is complete.

Usually, there is little to no cramping or
bleeding after taking the first abortion
pill, which is anti-progesterone like
Mifepristone or Mifeprex. Most women feel
cramping sensations and bleeding after taking
the secondary set of pills.
If you buy abortion pill pack on, you will get
medication to manage the side-effects.
How does the abortion pill work?
Medical abortion needs two pills. The first one,
Mifepristone blocks the pregnancy hormones and
causes the embryo to be detached. The Misoprostol
introduced a day later causes uterine
contractions and assists in ejection of
conception parts.
What are the side effects of abortion pills?
The primary benefit of the abortion drugs lies in
the capability to terminate the pregnancy in the
privacy at patient's home. There are some side
effects of mifepristone and misoprostol, which
is very rare but get away on their own in short
time. These include heavy vaginal bleeding,
vomiting, diarrhea, nausea, headache, fatigue,
dizziness and backache etc.

It is possible to eat after taking Misoprostol.
However, some women experience nausea after
taking Misoprostol pills, therefore it is advised
to take the pill unfed. You must also avoid
alcohol and other drugs while having an abortion
Can Mifepristone alone terminate a pregnancy?
The action of Mifepristone in a pregnant woman on
the uterus can induce abortion. As not all
females will abort with mifepristone alone, they
are given the prostaglandin misoprostol 24- 48
hours later after mifepristone. The recommended
dose of mifepristone is a single 200 mg pill.

30 minutes. After three hours put another four
pills of Misoprostol buccally or vaginally for 30
minutes. After three hours take other four pills
of Misoprostol buccally or vaginally again for a
third time.
