Hello and thanks for query,

Your doctor is right in prescribing MTP kit for termination of pregnancy, but one must get an ultrasound abdomen before taking this to rule out the possibility of ectopic pregnancy.

This medicine is safe and must be taken as prescribed by your doctor.

In case excessive bleeding takes place, the doctor usually prescribes TRANEXAMIC ACID.

Normally bleeding stops by taking this medicine; but if it doesn't stop, then an ultrasound abdomen is done to look for incomplete abortion.

If abortion is found to be incomplete then a minor surgical procedure by the name of dilatation and curettage (D&C) is performed to evacuate the remnants of fetus.

I hope to have answered your query; however you can revert to me for any further query.

Thanks and good luck.
