Nowadays, the health information, technologies, and human rights rationale for providing safe, widespread abortion care have evolved greatly. Millions of the abortions are performed every year successfully but some of the abortions are done unsafely. Two methods (medication or surgery) are generally used for the termination of pregnancy. A woman can be involved in an unwanted pregnancy either because she has missed contraceptives or failure of contraceptives. Abortion is defined as the ending of a pregnancy by removing a fetus or embryo. If an abortion occurs spontaneously, it is known as miscarriage.  

RU486 has been effectively and safely used for the termination of unwanted pregnancy.RU486 abortion pills are mainly designed to hasten an abortion for a woman who has a pregnancy of 7 weeks of gestation. If the pregnancy is more than 7 weeks or ectopic pregnancy, it is not safe to prescribe RU486. RU486 mainly contains Mifepristone that is typically used along with Misoprostol to bring out an abortion.

At the first day, you have to take three pills (200mg) each of RU486 orally. This dose of Mifepristone causes a fertilized egg to be unable to remain attached to the lining of the uterus. After two days gap, the doctor will carry out an exam to see if the pregnancy has terminated. If not, you have to take the second dose of Misoprostol in the form of two pills orally or as a vaginal suppository. This will cause the end of pregnancy from 6 hours to 1 week. Visit the doctor after 2 weeks of taking Mifepristone for confirming the end of pregnancy.

If you are allergic to Mifepristone, then do not use RU486. Excessive consumption of alcohol should be avoided while using RU486.
