Hi my name is XXXX. It's been 40 days for my wife since LMP. We performed a urinal test using home test kit proves positive. We have analyzed and have taken 1 mifegest 200 mg last night at 12 and further planning to have 2 more tablets of mifilegest 200 mg in noon today. Tomorrow she would have 2 mifeprost 200 mg consumed placing it under the tongue. 1. Are we doing things correctly. 2. When shall she expect bleeding. Please guide us.

Brief Answer: may need to add Misoprostol Detailed Answer: Hello XXXX, You seem to be doing things rightly. However, your wife may need additional tablet of Misoprostol vaginally as well. I usually prescribe 100mcg of Misoprostol vaginally every 6 hours for 3 times. She should start bleeding within 24 to 36 hours of taking the first dose of Mifeprost. Let me know if you have more queries.

Brief Answer: it is misoprostol vaginally, not mifeprost Detailed Answer: Hello, It seems like you are confused with the drugs. I mentioned tablet Misoprostol to be taken vaginally, and not mifeprost. Mifeprost 'IS' to be taken orally always. It is misoprostol that needs to be inserted vaginally. Yes, you can take 2 Mifeprost 200mg tablet orally on 48hrs and 72 hrs subsequently. This should help in complete abortion. Do a check ultrasound scan after a week of the completion of abortion process. The Tablet Mifeprost can be swallowed orally with water, and need to be taken under the tongue necessarily. Hope this helps.

Brief Answer: take misoprost at the earliest Detailed Answer: Hello, 1. She needs to take Misoprost at the earliest, 2 tablets of 200 mg. Do not wait until the bleeding starts. Take the tablet at the earliest. 2. Not necessarily, bleeding can happen even without consuming Misoprost. An ideal way to deal with this would be to contact her gynecologist directly and proceed accordingly. I warn you that these are prescription drugs, and need to be taken strictly under the care of a doctor. regards,

Hi doctor. My Wife took two misoprost 200mg (manufacturer - cipla) last night around 11.30 and she has also consumed for mifeprost 200 mg today around four. My questions are 1. She started bleeding from last night. She urinates thick at times and have clots. However the flow seems to be as same as her normal menstrual cycle. 2. She consumed the tablets normally with water and NOT vaginaly or placing it under tongue. Is that fine? Does she still need to consume more tablet
