Brief Answer: Use with doctor's advice Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for the query. Usually to terminate the pregnancy medically, -Ultrasound should be done to confirm the intrauterine pregnancy, to estimate the gestational age and to rule out the possibility of ectopic pregnancy. -Mifepristone followed by misoprostol to be taken. If you have taken the tablets after undergoing ultrasound, you may go for vaginal tablet. But here, -You have to use the tablet with your doctor's advice. -Better to avoid if you had previous cesarean section or any surgery over uterus or previous more than one birth. Hope I have answered your question. I will be available to answer followup questions. If you are satisfied with my answer please give your response at the end of the discussion. Take care.

Brief Answer: Use after consulting your doctor Detailed Answer: Hi, -Ultrasound should be taken before taking the pills. As you have undergone ultrasound, at present review ultrasound is not needed. After completion of abortion you need to undergo ultrasound once. -Yes, sometimes age can affect the efficacy of tablets. According to your history you can use the tablet. You can go for vaginal or two oral tablets. But better to use after consulting your doctor. Take care.
