An MTP kit consists of two types of abortion pills Mifepristone being one of them, and Misoprostol the other one. Since it’s a digital era of pharmacies, it is not difficult to find MTP kit online. If you bought MTP kit you get both pills in a single kit at almost the same price. You don’t have to look for both abortion pills separately. Also, since Mifepristone and Misoprostol abortion pills of the MTP kit are approved by the Food and Drugs Administration, you do not have to worry about its safety.
How is Mifepristone+Misoprostol combination a success?
Mifepristone and Misoprostol abortion pills have elements that can stop pregnancy growth, detach the fetus from the uterus and remove fetal contents from the body through vaginal bleeding. The whole pregnancy termination procedure takes around a week or two to complete.
One pill alone from the MTP kit cannot end the pregnancy successfully. For this, you have to have both abortion pills while undergoing the medical termination of pregnancy.
How do you use them?
The administering method of Mifepristone is very simple. You only have to take the medicine orally with water as you would take medicine normally. 200 mg is the suggested weight for ending an unwanted pregnancy.
There are two methods of administering this abortion pill. In the first method, you are told to keep the Misoprostol abortion pills in the cheek pouches. The pills should remain in your mouth for at least 30 minutes. To make sure they do, you can have a mouth freshener and then drink some water before taking the pill. Do not vomit when you have the pills in the mouth. If you feel like puking, take the pills out, vomit, gargle a bit and keep the pills in the mouth again.
In the second method of consuming Misoprostol abortion pill, you have to insert the four pills of Misoprostol. You can sit, squat or lie down to place the pills in the vagina. Put the pill one after one and push them inside using your index finger. Do not forget to urinate before you place the pills in the vagina. Since the pills should not fall off from the place, you cannot urinate for at least 30 minutes.
As vomiting is one of the side effects of MTP kit, there are more chances of pills falling off in the buccal method. Therefore, most healthcare providers advise women to take the vaginal method for their Misoprostol consumption.
Mifepristone may not have any visible changes. Misoprostol, however, will show you after effects such as cramping in the abdominal area and heavy vaginal bleeding. Monitor the after effects closely and check your pregnancy status a few days after you stop bleeding.
