It is a combination of two tablets. You can safely use this Kit for 63 days or 9 weeks from the first day of your last period to abort your pregnancy, First you have take a tablet of Mifepristone and then Misoprostol only after 48 hours of taking Mifepristone. Here is a schedule that you may follow: 1st day – Mifepristone one tablet in the morning (say 8 am) orally 2nd day – no tablet 3rd day – Misoprostol 200 mg one tablet in the morning and one tablet in the evening vaginally (12 hours gap, for example 9 am and 9 pm) 4th Day – Misoprostol one tablet, two times a day vaginally. Mifepristone is an anti-progesterone hormone that acts by blocking the effects of progesterone, a hormone which is needed for pregnancy to continue. Whereas Misoprostol acts on the uterus and produces strong contractions and softens the cervix to cause abortion.
