Welcome to icliniq.com.

Firstly, get a pregnancy test done. Then an ultrasound of early pregnancy to see the baby shadow is in the uterus and not outside. The pregnancy should be less than seven weeks. You have to go to a gynecologist for a prescription and take it under her guidance as it is not allowed to buy it over the counter.

Its success rate is 96 to 97 % and the failure rate is 3 to 4 % and may require D and C if fails. In the kit there are two drugs, one is Mefipristone 200 mg one stat dose is taken orally on day-1 and on day-3. Then there are four tablets of Misoprostol 200 mcg each. It is either inserted in the vagina (put few drops of water on the tablet to wet it or kept under the tongue). Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and start taking the medicine with their consent.

You will have cramps in the abdomen and bleeding will start after four to six hours and will last for five to six days. It will be like your periods or slightly heavier than that. But, if you have heavy bleeding, then report to the doctor immediately.

Second follow-up will be after two weeks to see that everything is clear and nothing is retained inside (can occur if you bleed irregularly).
