mifepristone and misoprostol.

Mifepristone 200 Mg Tablet

Mifepristone (also known as RU 486) is used to cause an abortion during the early part of pregnancy. It is used up to week 24 of pregnancy. Mifepristone blocks a natural substance (progesterone) that is needed for your pregnancy to continue. It is usually used together with another medicine called misoprostol. Mifepristone must not be used if you have a rare abnormal pregnancy that is outside the womb (ectopic pregnancy). It will not cause an abortion in this case. It may cause an ectopic pregnancy to rupture, resulting in very serious bleeding.
