Detailed Answer:

Hello,

In what city are you based? The mifegest kit has not worked.
It should not be given beyond 7 weeks of pregnancy, as it generally fails.

Did a doctor give it to you, or did you self take it? A surgical abortion only by an experienced doctor should be done now, as termination beyond 12 weeks of pregnancy is risky. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Hope I have answered your query.

Take care

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

Surgical abortion takes 1 day only. You can be discharged after a few hours of the procedure, the procedure takes 30 minutes.

There is no cut, it is done from below vaginally. Side effects depend if there are complications during the procedure, generally by an experienced person, it is done pretty safely.

Hope I have answered your query.
