Hello,
Thanks for the query.
You can use MTP kit for the abortion purpose.
Each pack of MTP kit contains 5 tablets - 
1 tablet of Mifepristone…200 mg 
4 tablets of Misoprostol, each containing Misoprostol…200 mcg

MTP Kit is indicated for the medical termination of intrauterine pregnancy up to 63 days of gestation. For purposes of this treatment, pregnancy is dated from the first day of the last menstrual period in a presumed 28 days cycle with ovulation occurring at mid-cycle.
The duration of pregnancy may be determined from menstrual history and by clinical examination. Ultrasonographic scan should be used if the duration of pregnancy is uncertain, or if ectopic pregnancy is suspected.
Any intrauterine device [“IUD”] should be removed before treatment with mifepristone and misoprostol begins. 

The dosage is mifepristone 200 mg orally followed 1–3 days later by misoprostol 800 mcg vaginally or orally.

The patient should return for a follow-up visit approximately 14 days after the administration of mifepristone. This visit is very important to confirm by clinical examination or ultrasonographic scan that a complete termination of pregnancy has occurred.If MTP kit fails,then surgical termination of pregnancy is recommended.

I hope it helps however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
Thanks

Hello
You take it as I told you above.
One tablet of mifepristone followed by 4 tablets of misoprostol after 48 hours.
However it is always better to talk to your doctor before its use.
Thanks

I had a surgical abortion 1 month ago. Immediately after the abortion all my pregnancy symptoms went away. I only bled lightly for about a week and a half. I have had unprotected sex several times since. I haven t gotten my period yet. I took a pregnancy test a few days ago and there was a very faint second line. I took another test today, the line was still faint but a tiny bit darker then the last (two different brands of test). Could I be pregnant already?

I have been heavily constipated since the day before yesterday and for the past week or so i have been encountering heavy white gooey discharge from my vagina. I suffered a miscarriage last month in August and have since had my period. What do you think this could be? I have been having unprotected sex with my husband.

Doctor prescribed 800mg of misoprosotol and I m going to find out this week, if it was successful in clearing everything. How long does the misoprostol stay in the system and when is it safe to try again? thanks
