Medical abortion can be done max 7-9wk of gestation completely. You can use medication in following way but always under supervision of gynecologist to avoid unnecessary excessive vaginal bleeding.

General method: Tab Mifepristone 200mg (ideally 600mg) on D1, after 48 hrs take 2 Tab Misoprostol 200mg in the morning and under supervision of your doctor. You may need double dose sometimes in case of delaying to start bleeding.

Soon after taking Tab Misoprostol, abdominal cramp and vaginal bleeding start within 7 days and next period may be earlier/delayed.

Post pill abortion, do a USG lower abdomen to check retained bits/conceptional products if any and may need D &C to complete abortion.

Practice safe sex by using safe period/OCP/Em pill/other methods to prevent unwanted pregnancy.

Be well.
