Hello doctor,

My fiancee is 59 days pregnant. So we consulted a doctor for an abortion and she prescribed Mifepristone and Misoprostol for the abortion. But the doctor had told this method should be used before 49 days. So if these tablets are taken on the 59th day, how much effective it would be?

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Medical termination is legal until 20 weeks of pregnancy in some countries. But safety profile says, until seven weeks these pills do not cause heavy bleeding and pain, so can be prescribed by a single doctor. For more than seven weeks, often bleeding and pain is more leading to unwanted hospitalization, that is why dilation and curettage under short anesthesia are preferred. In the end, it is the patient's decision, what she wants.
