Medical abortion involves the usage of two different abortion pills called Mifepristone and Misoprostol. You need to take medicine under the supervision of an OB-GYN. The doctor asks you to take the first tablet (Mifepristone) at the clinic in her presence. Within 24-48 hours of the first tablet, you need to take the second tablet. You can take the second tablet either at home at the office.

The process of abortion starts within 24 hours of taking the second tablet. Mifepristone blocks the necessary hormone for pregnancy and detaches the embryo from the uterine wall. Misoprostol causes the uterus to contract and open the cervix slightly to expel the pregnancy. Medical termination of pregnancy takes around 7-10 days to complete.
