There are two types of pills necessary to complete an early medical abortion which must be taken within 48 hours of each other; these pills are Mifepristone and Misoprostol.
The first pill is a Mifepristone tablet, this blocks progesterone, a hormone that is needed for your pregnancy to continue. The Mifepristone tablet is taken orally with a glass of water. We then advise that you wait for one to two days before taking the Misoprostol pills.
After your 24-48-hour break, you will take 4 Misoprostol pills which will cause your body to expel the pregnancy from the womb. Our pack comes with an instruction leaflet, which provides you with full details on how and when to take the pills. The second pills start the contractions to expel the fetus from the womb; we suggest taking a pain killer 10 minutes before.
