Hi,

Thanks for writing to us.

To use medicines for abortion, it is advisable to get a physical exam by a qualified doctor first, along with a trans-vaginal sonogram for the confirmation of an intrauterine pregnancy and also the period of gestation. There are several forms available, but the treatment best suitable for you would be decided by your attending doctor.

Self-medication is not at all advisable, as it can lead either to an incomplete abortion with severe consequences like heavy bleeding and infection with subsequent infertility problems, or failed abortion in the presence of an ectopic pregnancy, which in itself is a complication.

Therefore, I would advice you to get your pregnancy status confirmed by a gynecologist and proceed further. A post-abortal check up is necessary to check for completion of the process.

MTPROST kit is very widely used with good efficacy of about 98%. No medication is 100% efficient. The efficiency depends on the individual response, period of gestation, mode of administration and the dosage. A repeat dosage may be needed sometimes. Other treatments available are Methotrexate and Misoprostol and Misoprostol alone.

Hope I have answered your query. Please feel free to contact if you need further clarifications. I will be ready to help.

Hi,

Thanks for writing back.

Misoprostol tablets can be taken both orally as well as vaginally. If taken orally, the buccal route is preferred and the drug should be kept for 20-30 minutes until it is fully dissolved. The vaginal route is the better choice for initial administration. Repeat doses of the drug can be taken orally or by the vaginal route. The drug is administered by a gynecologist 1-3 days after taking Mifepristone.

Hope I have made it clear. Please get back if you have any further queries. I will be ready to help.

Hi,

Thanks for writing back.

It would be better if all the four tablets are taken in one route. They are taken in a single dose. If bleeding is not seen 4 hours after taking the tablets, another dose of 2 tablets may be needed. Pain is followed by bleeding with passage of clots and bits if pregnancy is more than 45 days and if under 45 days it may mimic menstrual bleeding. The whole process should be done under the guidance of a specialist and confirmation of the abortion is done two weeks later.

Please remember, self-medication carries with it the risk of incomplete abortion, failed abortion and risk of a missed ectopic pregnancy. There is a chance that future fertility could be impaired if infection develops.

Hope I have answered all your queries. If there are no further questions, you may close this discussion.

Wish you good health.

Shanti.V.

I am 32 years old , married and I have one kid of 6 years. My last LMP is 30th May, 2010. The next schedule date was 28th June, 2010. I did not take precaution in the last month and there is no period till today. On the other hand I notice uneasy feeling. So I perform preg Color card test today morning. The result shows two pink lines in the test card (One is deep pink line and another is light pink line). Does it confirm that I am pregnant?



I do not want any baby at this time due to some unavoidable problem. So if I am pregnant could you please advice me how can I remove it with the help of medicine? I read some thing about RU-486(mefepristone and misoprostol.) in the internet. But I am confused about the administration and quantity of these medicine. So I shall be remain grateful to you if you kindly advice clearly the correct medicine, its administration , side effects and pre-cautions needed for it.



With kind regards,
