Probably is safe: Not knowing the doses of each medication, or the detail of the patient instructions that come with the medication, I am hesitant to give a "yes" or "no" answer. It is always a good idea to get advice from a gynecologist about something this important. ...Read more

Doc my wife had mifepristone on 12 june and misoprostol on 14 june for termination of pragnancy. So doc when do I get a pragnancy teat kit at home?

10 days: After about 10-14 days the majority of pregnancies will show up negative. Even better though, would be an ultrasound to confirm the uterus is empty. Is there anyway you and your wife can get an ultrasound to ensure that the uterus is empty? ...Read more

Hi I am 6 week pregnant. I want to take Unwanted kit (mifepristone & misoprostol). What should be the ideal gap of time in taking mifepristone and misoprostal.? Should misoprostal take orally or vaginally? After how much time it will start bleeding after

Hi I am 6 week pregnant. I want to take Unwanted kit (mifepristone & misoprostol). What should be the ideal gap of time in taking mifepristone and misoprostal.? Should misoprostal take orally or vaginally? After how much time it will start bleeding after

Ideal is 6-8 hours: You can use the misoprostol vaginally, in the cheek (buccally) or orally. There are fewer adverse affects if you place the tablets vaginally. Good evidence shows that placing the tablets vaginally 6-8 hours after the mifepristone is as effective as after 24 hours. So the least side effects and most effective is placing them vaginally after 6-8 hours. Bleeding usually starts after 4-6 hours. ...Read more

Hi Hi I am 6 week pregnant. I want to take Unwanted kit (mifepristone & misoprostol). I decided to take it next week. But I am suffering from pain in lower abdomen and fever. Can I take any painkiller? Kindly suggest any medicine for pain and fever.

Please see a doctor: Lower abdominal pain during early pregnancy can be a warning sign of ectopic pregnancy. You really need to rule that possibility out before proceeding with the medications you are planning to use. In addition, fever can be a sign of infection, and you need to be evaluated to find out what the fever is coming from (an STD, a bladder infection, etc) so it can be treated appropriately ASAP. ...Read more

I took abortion pills mifepristone 1 tablet and 4 mistoprotol tablets. Very very low bleeding. My question is am I still pregnant?

Uncertain: Typically if a woman does a regimen for medical abortion such as you did, they have bleeding like a period. It's possible that you're uterus is empty, but also possible that there's still tissue there. Best would be to make an appointment with your doctor. He/she may decide to perform an ultrasound to detect any possible retained tissue. ...Read more

Can my girlfriend get pregnant from unprotected sex 5 days after taking mifepristone? Or should she take it again? How long is the pill useful for?

Not likely: Usually after a termination or pregnancy loss it takes 10-15 days at least before ovulation resumes. However, if this was an unplanned pregnancy and she is terminating, why are you having unprotected sex at all? Its probably time to use a condom or for her to get on birth control. ...Read more

Hello doc. My wife is having mifepristone and start vomiting after 3 hr she starts vomiting. Is the pill will be still effective?

Hello doc. My wife is having mifepristone and start vomiting after 3 hr she starts vomiting. Is the pill will be still effective?

Should be ok: In general, we worry if the vomiting occurs within 30 minutes of taking the mifeprostone and in this case advise to take it again. 3 hours after taking the pill should be long enough to absorb the medication. If she continues to vomit for more than a day after taking the pill, see your doctor. ...Read more
