What if I take Mifepristone without Misoprostol?
What happens if you take Mifepristone but not Misoprostol? Taking the abortion pill Mifepristone without Misoprostol can result in one of three different outcomes.
What happens if you take Mifepristone but not Misoprostol?
If, for some reason, you take the Mifepristone and then decide you will not take the Misoprostol part of the abortion pill regimen, there are a few things that could happen.
Mifepristone without Misoprostol can cause these outcomes:
- You might experience a complete abortion without ever taking Misoprostol.
- You might experience a missed abortion, which means that the fetus is no longer viable, but the products of pregnancy (blood, tissue) do not leave your body. This has to be treated with a vacuum aspiration.
- It is also possible that your pregnancy might continue. If you decide you want to keep the pregnancy at this point, it is unlikely that the Mifepristone will cause later fetal malformations.
