Thanks for your query.

Using the abortion pills that is, Mifepristone and misoprostol for early pregnancy abortion is being commonly used now a day but it has got three main problems.

First is there is usually heavy bleeding associated with its use along with abdominal cramps and the bleeding might even continue for 40-45 days.

Second comparatively uncommon one is incomplete abortion in which case you might have to undergo D&C.Precaution is - Do not breast feed your baby after taking this tablets at least for six months.

Third is do not try to conceive your next baby for at least next six months as there are high chances of missed abortion.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available if you have any further queries.
