What is Abortion pill

Abortion pills are actually two different medicines to end a pregnancy( Mifepristone/Misoprostol).

Mifepristone is not currently available. Since mifepristone is a registered abortion drug, its sale and use is not permitted in most countries whose laws restrict abortion. In contrast, Misoprostol  is an anti-ulcer drug registered under various brand names in more than 85 countries. Research has reported that using misoprostol alone, to end unwanted pregnancy, has 85% success rate, when gestational age less than 9 weeks.

Although misoprostol alone is less effective(85% sucess rate) than the combination (mifepristone/misoprostol), it is a safe and accessible alternative for women who have no other choice.

Misoprostol Brands and Generics in Egypt

Misoprostol is an abortive drug recommended by the World Health Organization for the termination of early pregnancy (when the gestational age is less than 9 weeks or 63 days). It is often used alone to abort a home pregnancy in countries where abortion laws are restricted. Therefore, most women wishing to end early pregnancy,use misoprostol only (by herself at home) as a method of pregnancy termination. Misoprostol, in Egypt,  is available at a concentration of 200 micrograms, in three brands: ❶ Cytotec, ❷ Misotac, and ❸ Misoprost.

The best time to use Misoprostol pills safely at home, to terminate a pregnancy, is when the gestational age is greater than 5 weeks (35 days) and less than 9 weeks (63 days).It is worth noting that the gestational age is calculated from the date of the first day of the last menstrual period (not from the date of the missed period).

Success rate of misoprostol for early termination of pregnancy

A review of current research indicates that the efficacy of misoprostol as the only drug for abortion, varies according to methods of use, dose, dosing program and gestational age. According to research, misoprostol (commercially known as Cytotec, Misotac or Misoprost) succeeds in terminating pregnancy (when the pregnancy is less than 63 days) with rates ranging from 85 to 90%. This means that approximately 1 out of 10 women who use misoprostol to terminate a pregnancy will fail to abort their pregnancy using the misoprostol pill.

  • If you use the misoprostol pill, and you never bleed, this mean that the abortion process failed, and you can try again three to five days after the first attempt.
  • If you use Misoprostol and bleeding occurred, but ultrasound scan indicate the continuation of pregnancy, you must try again three to five days after the first attempt.
  • If you make two attempts and both attempts fail, it is advised not to try again a third time using misoprostol only, and you should consider with your service provider, switching to a combination (Methotrexate/Misoprostol) or surgical termination of pregnancy by curettage or vacuum aspiration.
