Hello. I know this is a difficult time for you. As your doctor probably explained, it is important to take the medications in the Mifegest
kit exactly as directed to reduce the risk for a failed abortion
. The mifepristone in your kit blocks the action of progesterone
, which thins your uterine lining and helps the embryo detach. Misoprostol
then triggers uterine contractions to expel the detached embryo and complete the process.
There's still a chance your kit will do its job. However, if you don't start bleeding within 48 hours after you took the first tablet, call your doctor. He/she may prescribe another kit, or you could be referred for a surgical abortion.
I hope things go well. My best to you.
