Brief Answer: Do not worry, will not affect future pregnancy Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for choosing HCM. I am Dr Madhuri a consultant Obstetrician and I will be answering your question. Mifeprin kit is used to induce first trimester abortions. It may also be used in missed abortions. However in missed abortions the baby is no longer alive and the products of conception are sometimes adherent to the uterine wall. Also mifepristone acts by interfering with progesterone which is already decreasing in missed abortion. So considering all this, the chances of having an incomplete abortion and needing an evacuation procedure [surgical removal of abortus] are slightly higher. If you experience continuous or very heavy bleeding with this kit see your doctor. Regarding problems in future pregnancy, if every thing goes well, the drug does not have any effect on future childbearing. The possibility of future babies is not affected at all. So please do not worry about this. I am extremely sorry that you had a miscarriage. Try to enroll earlier with your doctor in the next pregnancy and begin treatment early. Take folic acid tablets for one month before you conceive. Hope this satisfies your query. Thanks for using HCM. Feel free to ask any more questions that you may have.
