How should you use the abortion pills?
To end a pregnancy the medicines should be used in the following way:
- First you should swallow one tablet of Mifepristone. This medicine blocks the effects of progesterone, the hormone that is necessary to maintain the pregnancy.
- 24 hours later you should put 4 tablets of Misoprostol under your tongue and keep the tablets there for at least 30 minutes, until the tablets are dissolved. You can swallow your saliva. After 30 minutes, you can swallow the remains of the tablets.
- 4 hours after using the first dose of Misoprostol, you should put 2 more tablets of Misoprostol in under your tongue. Again, keep the tablets under your tongue for 30 minutes. Do not swallow the tablets until after 30 minutes.
