I appreciate your query.
Please do not go for a medical abortion without consulting a doctor , and do not take medicines in random dosage as prescribed by your friend, if he is not a medical person.
Even if he is, it is extremely important to first consult a doctor, to confirm the pregnancy, and the exact weeks of gestation ( dating of the pregnancy ), as medical abortion works within a specific time frame window.
Also, more important is to rule out the chances of ectopic pregnancy, that is the chance of a pregnancy outside the uterus.
Going ahead with medical abortion without keeping in mind these things can prove to be disastrous.
Moreover, with medical abortion there are chances of excessive bleeding, and failure of the pills, in which case you would require immediate/urgent medical attention
Hence it is better to have a prior consultation
Also the dosage mentioned by your friend is entirely wrong.
No such dosage is recommended in any literature.
Medical abortion is given with a combination of Mifepristone and Misoprostol tablets in a specific prescribed format.
Please visit your gynecologist for the specific dosage instructions and for abovementioned reasons.
Hope I helped you with this.
