Brief Answer:
see detailed description

Detailed Answer:
Hello sir, thanks for trusting health care magic.
As she has just missed her periods and thus early pregnancy, it can be tackled by drugs alone.
Firstly I would like to suggest you that it is not safe to take the MTP pill yourself without consulting a gynecologist.
At most places it is not an over the counter drug and is available only on prescription and has a specific pattern of intake
Kit consists of one large tablet to be taken at once and then after 48 hours of that take the rest of the tablets In kit which are four in number.
After taking full kit, abortion occurs anytime between 6 hours to 5 days.
But in few patients there can be an incomplete abortion or excessive bleeding per vaginum and in that case you have to visit a gynecologist.
I hope I have answered your question but in case you have other questions I will be happy to help.

Answered by Dr. Manisha Jain 8 hours later
Brief Answer:
timing advised

Detailed Answer:
Take it along with breakfast always so that if need arises to go to doctor you can do it in day time.
Take mifepristone orally and then after 48 hours take the rest of the tablets vaginally.
After taking the vaginal tablets she should lie down for at least an hour for proper absorption.
Take care

Mam can you tell me one thing? She has to go urgently to another city. So can she take the first tablet on 11th april and rest four vaginally on 13th april? Will delaying two more days will effect her problem ? Or she can delay it for more 2-3days as after bleeding start she won't be able to go to office.

Thank you.

Brief Answer:
Can delay by 2 days

Detailed Answer:
Yes sir, she can delay it by 2 days without any problems.
But dont delay it further otherwise risk of incomplete abortion increases.
So she can do her work and take it as advised.
All the best

Brief Answer:
repeat the dose

Detailed Answer:
Yes sir, i do remember your health issue.
Wait till 48 hours after the intake of those 4 tablets and in case still bleeding and abortion process doesn't start then a repeat dose will be needed to complete the abortion process.
Take tablet misoprostol 400 mg after 48 hours of the last tablets viz tomorrow morning and hopefully that will result in complete abortion.
But in case it fails to abort even 24 hours after the same then you will need to get an ultrasound to assess the status of the pregnancy.
Take care

hello mam,
can she take misoprostol orally?or vaginally? Which one is better ?
doctor
Answered by Dr. Manisha Jain 4 hours later
Brief Answer:
vaginal is better

Detailed Answer:
Vaginal route is better.
But in case she is hesitant for it oral administration will also serve the purpose as it is her second round of misoprostol.

Mam- is it compulsory to take again the misoprostol orally after 48hrs?
Or she can take it after 72hrs?
doctor
Answered by Dr. Manisha Jain 14 minutes later
Brief Answer:
can take after 72 hours

Detailed Answer:
She can take it after 72 hours also.
But don't delay it after that otherwise the effect of previous kit will be gone completely.

Brief Answer:
seems complete abortion has occurred

Detailed Answer:
Mostly all products get cleared by this dose so just see the bleeding pattern and in case it stops in a day or two then nothing to worry.
But in any case get ultrasound done after ten days from now to ensure complete abortion.
Hopefully everything will be fine.
All the best.
