Can misoprostol abort 3weeks pregnancy?

Can misoprostol abort 3weeks pregnancy?

Yes: Yes, a medical abortion can be induced with miso alone and it is about 85% effective. It may take several doses to complete the abortion to be successful and there is a small risk of bleeding that may need medical or surgical attention. In places where services for abortion are few, this is the only option for some women. http://iwhc.org/resource/abortion-self-administered-misoprostol-guide-women ...Read more

Misoprostol: Misoprostol alone is not an abortion pill and in fact it's used as a drug to prevent/treat stomach ulcers.

Does emergency contraceptive pill works after surgical abortion if taken 20 days after abortion?

Does emergency contraceptive pill works after   surgical abortion if taken 20 days after abortion?

One should be sure to check a home pregnancy test about 3 weeks after sex, because Ella (ulipristal acetate) works most of the time, but not all of the time.

Wat dosage of cytotec (misoprostol) to give to terminate 4week 5 days pregnancy if beta hCG levels going low?

May not need: If beta HCG is dropping you likely are already having a miscarriage. Most physicians aren't recommending using Cytotec (misoprostol) alone to terminate a pregnancy. Most mds will provide Mifepristone combined with cytotec (misoprostol). I realize that some women will obtain Cytotec (misoprostol) in mexico or on-line and use at home without a doctor. This isn't safe. See a md if you need assistance with terminating a pregnancy. ...Read more
