Hello,
After you take the mifepristone 600mg you should bleed within 24 hrs.
Then you have to take 2 tabs of misoprostol 48hrs after taking the mifepristone.
Even though you bleed and get cramps complete the full dose of the medicine.
If the medication is taken incorrectly,there may be remnants of pregnancy inside the uterus which will require surgical intervention.

You are over the time limit.Since its been over 48 hrs after taking mifepristone, so you have taken the misoprostol already.I cannot guarantee that the complete process will be successful. But you can definitely hope for the best.Take 200mg misoprostol 2 tablets together (each tab is 200mg) as soon as possible. Take both tabs together.

You taken them orally.Swallow them and dont keep them in your mouth.That the XXXXXXX dose you can take. Taking higher dose may be harmful to you.So regardless of your condition,take the dose suggested only.You should get proper bleeding and may be with passage of clots.Bleeding will continue 7-10 days.If longer,see your doctor for an ultrasound.

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,
