The courpus luteum hormone also known as Progesterone, is necessary for the usual progress of a pregnancy. Mifepristone is a drug available in the misoprostol sklep that selectively inhibits progesterone function. Mifepristone is administered as a pregnancy disorder similar to an early spontaneous miscarriage. Another hormone, prostaglandin, should be given two days after Mifepristone to ensure expulsion from the gestational bag. If the patient wishes to see the expelled gestational bag, he should carefully look at his absorbent or toilet bowl.
How Does Abortion Work?
Administration of Mifepristone and prostaglandin is a very safe and effective method that achieves a successful abortion in 98% of cases. Administration of prostaglandin can cause menstrual disorders such as cramps in the lower abdomen; therefore analgesic medication may be required.
In most countries this method is approved until the 9th week of pregnancy (the weeks are calculated from the first day of the last menstrual period). Abortion through medical treatment using pills takes several days. It allows you to control your body and feel the treatment. That is why you may face prejudice in the process.

What is the abortion pill and how does it work?
There is a lot of wrong information about the aortic pill and the last thing you want besides completing a pregnancy is getting even frightened. Women have been using mifepristone or the abortion pill for more than a decade, so we’d better find out everything about it, to know what other options there are for ending an unwanted pregnancy:
How does it work?
Abortion is an alternative to surgical abortion and can be used before pregnancy reaches 9 weeks. This type of abortion has two stages. Primarily it causes the embryo to break away from the uterine wall. Two days later, a pill called misoprostol contracts the uterus to remove the embryo. Immediately after ingestion of the pills, most patients feel uncomfortable; have severe abdominal cramps and abnormal bleeding with clots and tissue. These episodes last for several days until the pregnancy is eliminated. Abortion occurs about 4-5 hours after taking the second tablet and ends about 2 days later. Some women have mild bleeding that may take up to two weeks.
Contraindications to the abortive pill
Not all women can resort to medical abortion and will not be able to choose this method if:
- Have over 35 years and smoked over 10 cigarettes a day
- They are suspected of having an extra uterine pregnancy
- Have heart problems, have high blood pressure, kidney or liver disease
- Have an intrauterine device, sterile, which cannot be removed
The biggest problem is that the pill works in 97% of cases. The failure rate of drug abortion is between 2-3% (2-3 women out of 100). If you have the misfortune to be part of the remaining 2-3%, you must repeat the procedure.
