Day 1 — Mifepristone (1 tablet orally)
This is the main requirement for abortion. Mifepristone works by blocking the progesterone hormones. Without progesterone, the lining of the uterus breaks down, and pregnancy cannot continue.
Day 2 — Misoprostol (4 tablets per dose, then repeat after 5 hours)

After a successful abortion, it is advisable to wait for 10 days if you want to go for an ultrasound to ensure that your uterus has completely removed all the remaining tissues and blood.
Does it hurt?

Some women may begin bleeding before taking the second medicine. But for most, the bleeding and cramping begin after taking it. It usually lasts a few hours. You may see large blood clots or tissue at the time of the abortion. Most women abort within 6-8 hours after taking the second medicine. For others, it takes longer (abortion should occur in 3 days).It’s normal to have some bleeding or spotting for up to four weeks after the abortion.

temporary abdominal cramps
nausea or vomit
mild fever or colds

Not necessary. However, Acetaminophen (like Tylenol) or Ibuprofen (like Advil) can reduce most of these symptoms. They’re available at most pharmacies under trade name Nurofen, Diclofenac or Tylenol. Do not use Aspirin, as it will heal a cramp but causes heavier bleeding. You may feel more at ease if you have a trusted partner, friend or loved one with you during the abortion.

Abortion is completed when the embryo is expelled from the uterus. You can see when the embryo comes out during the bleeding process (usually in a few hours or up to 3 days). Depending on the pregnancy stage, the embryo is expelled in various size & shapes along with tissues & blood.
