What if you are not pregnant but take the medicines anyway?

Your health will not be harmed if you are not pregnant but take the medicines anyway. However, you may still experience the common side effects of the medicines, including nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or a low fever for up to 24 hours. Mifepristone has been shown to cause no medical harm among non-pregnant[1] women and Misoprostol is regularly used in non-pregnant women to prevent and treat ulcers.
