Thanks for posting your query on XXXXXXX

It can be used again for medical abortion, but it is important that you take it under supervision of a gynecologist. It should be taken within 63 days of gestation. She may also need to follow-up with the physician after taking the medicine.

After the abortion process is complete, she should be started on contraception. Repeated abortions are not good for women's health. You can consult the gynecologist for the same.

Take care
