Abortion is termination of pregnancy, which can be done by using a medicine or surgery to remove the embryo or fetus as well as placenta from the uterus. Furthermore, mifepristone and misoprostol are abortion medicines that are a safe and effective way to terminate pregnancy. Moreover, progesterone hormone helps in normally pregnancy growth so that to block the effect of progesterone hormone, mifepristone abortion medicine is used. When the progesterone hormones are blocked, the lining of uterus breaks down and pregnancy gets terminated. Also, after taking mifepristone, doctor recommends to take second abortion medicine called misoprostol, which causes bleeding and cramping to empty the uterus. If the patient does not have bleeding within 24 hours after taking misoprostol, the patients should consult a doctor. The patient can take abortion medicine up to 70 days (10 week) after the first day of last mensuration. If it has been more than 70 days since the first day of last mensuration, doctor recommends to go for surgery to terminate the pregnancy. Mifepristone is also marketed under the name, Mifeprex, Korlym, and RU486.
