How To Use
Take mifepristone by mouth as directed by your doctor, usually as a single dose. After taking unwanted pregnancy, your doctor should direct you to wait 24 to 48 hours before taking another medication (misoprostol) by mouth as a single dose. The medications may not work as well if you take misoprostol sooner than 24 hours after taking mifepristone or later than 48 hours after taking mifepristone. Heavy vaginal bleeding does not mean that an abortion is complete.
Side Effect Of Mifepristone
Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, weakness, or dizziness may occur. If these effects persist longer than the first 24 hours after taking the second drug (misoprostol), seek immediate medical attention because they can be signs of a serious medical problem.
Bleeding and cramping are expected during this treatment. Usually, the symptoms mean the drugs are working. However, sometimes you can have cramps and bleeding and still be pregnant. Therefore, you must return for all of your follow-up visits with your doctor. Nausea and cramping may worsen in the 24 hours after you take the second drug (misoprostol).
Bleeding and spotting may last up to 30 days and may be much heavier than a normal period. In very few cases, this bleeding will need to be stopped by surgery.
