How to terminate unwanted pregnancy?

I am 5 weeks pregnant and received the mifepristone shot today to start an abortion. Everything that I’ve read and have heard from friends says the first set of pills should be insterted 24-48 hours after receiving the shot. The doctor was not professional at all and instructed me to invert th pills 5 days from now. Please help was my mind and let m know if this is true or I I should insert them in 24 hours

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

For medical abortion, Mifepristone 600 mg is given and it is taken orally. Then after 48 hour, Misoprostol tablet is inserted high up in vagina.

Then within 45 to 50 minute, bleeding starts with clot and tissue. The whole process takes 4 to 5 days to complete. After 2 week, USG scan is advisable to check if abortion process is successful or not.

Consult only gynecologist for examination and get aborted under guidance of a gynecologist.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
