Thanks for your query.

Misoprostol and mifepristone are the two major drugs used in medical termination of pregnancy.
Studies have shown that when it is taken within 7 weeks, success rate is as high as 98%.
However it is not safe to take medications from over the counter.
It should always be taken under the guidance of specialist Obstetrician to avoid unnecessary side effects some of which could also be life threatening.
Hope this helps.
