thank you for your query.
Medical abortion should only be carried out under medical supervision.
Firstly, pregnancy has to be confirmed that it is intra uterine, and it has to be dated by a gynecologist.
Also, the exact prescription provided by your doctor ( gynecologist ) has to followed very particularly.
If you have any doubts about the dosages and the pills, please consult your doctor again and ensure that you have understood the instructions thoroughly.
Failing to be very careful can lead to severe bleeding, infection, retained products, failed abortion etc.
After taking the tablets, bleeding begins within 24 - 48 hours.
A follow up visit to confirm that abortion was complete is also essential.
take care.
