Hi,

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

If you are opting for abortion in early pregnancy within 8 weeks, you can go for medical abortion using abortion pill.

This kit contains two types of pills, one to be taken orally at the first appointment and another pill to be inserted vagina (or buccal ) within 48 hours of first pill.

This medication should be prescribed by a gynecologist.

For safe termination, I advise you to consult the gynecologist for the prescription of medical kit for safe abortion.

This process is associated with pain due to uterine contractions and vaginal bleeding, so you need supportive medication also for pain relief.

This process can be done by you at home, but you need a proper prescription of the medication kit by the gynecologist along with instructions about the usage, advise on follow up visits for supervision, and confirmation of completion of abortion on ultrasound abdomen and pelvis.

Therefore I advise you to consult the doctor for prescription of medical abortion kit with a proper advise on follow up visits and in emergency.

Hope I have answered your query, if you have any clarification please let me know.

Regards.

Hi,

Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

Medications used as painkillers during cramping is hyoscine butyl bromide.

It is a prescribed medication and you should take as per your doctor prescription.

Be in follow up with your doctor and repeat ultrasound abdomen to know the complete abortion with your doctor advise.

Hope I have answered your query, if you have any clarification please let me know.

Hi,

Thank you for getting back.

You should follow the doctor prescription while taking these medication.

Misoprostol causes contractions of uterus, causing expulsion of the products of conception.

I advise you to take the medication as per your doctor advise and be in follow up to confirm the completion of abortion process.

You can take supplementation with iron, folic acid, and multivitamin syrups to compensate the loss in bleeding.

At follow up the doctor will prescribe the supplementation medication with iron and folic acid.

Hope I have answered your query, if you have any clarification please let me know.

Regards.
