This medicine will cause the death of the unborn by removing life support from it. It will detach the fetus from the placenta and intrauterine linings. At the time of parturition, this will open the cervix to remove the fetus.

Misoprostol 200mcg pill is the secondary medicine used in MTP kit. This kit has 4 pills of Misoprostol in it. This medicine works by softening the inner linings of the uterus and dilating the cervix. This medicine will remove the dead fetus out of the womb. It will cause bleeding and loss of uterine tissue while removing the fetus out of the body.

As said earlier, when you buy online MTP Kit it comes in a combination of two medicines. First medicine Mifepristone should be taken orally with some water. You can take Mifepristone with or without food. But taking it with light food with avoiding the possibility of nausea. Second medicine should be followed 1-2 days later.

Unlike Mifepristone, Misoprostol can be taken in two ways i.e. either buccally or orally. While taking this medicine buccally keep it inside your mouth for at least 30 minutes. Once they are dissolved swallow them without water. For this, you can use 2 medicines at a time. Another method of administration is vaginal administration.
