What is the Mifegyne Abortive Pill?
Mifegyne is a brand of Mifepristone, and it is a pill used for abortion during pregnancies up to 13 weeks. Mifegyne blocks the pregnancy hormone necessary for the growth of the pregnancy. Mifégyne is produced by Exelgyn, a French pharmaceutical company.
How does Mifégyne work for abortions?
Mifegyne blocks the effects of progesterone, which is a natural hormone necessary for pregnancy growth. This prevents the pregnancy from developing and prepares the uterus to contract and the cervix to soften and dilate. As a rule, it will start operating within 24 to 48 hours of use.
For abortion, Mifegyne is intended to be used in combination with a prostaglandin-based drug (such as Misoprostol, Cytotec, or Misotrol), which will help the cervix to relax and dilate, and the uterus contract.
Dosage of the Mifégyne
Mifégyne is available in 200 mg tablets, which is the recommended dose for gestational pregnancies of less than 13 weeks. It must be swallowed orally. After waiting 24 to 48 hours after using Mifegyne, it should be followed by a prostaglandin-based drug (such as Misoprostol, Cytotec, and Misotrol).
The dosage of Mifegyne and Misoprostol for pregnant women under 9 weeks: You will need 1 tablet of Mifegyne and 4 tablets of Misoprostol, and it is recommended to have 4 additional tablets of Misoprostol (a total of 8 tablets of Misoprostol).
The dosage of Mifegyne and Misoprostol for pregnant women from 9 to 13 weeks: You will need one Mifégyne pill and at least 4 tablets of Misoprostol, but it is strongly recommended to have 4 additional tablets of Misoprostol (a total of 8 tablets of Misoprostol) since you are between 9 and 13 weeks old. If it is difficult to get 8 tablets, you can choose to take only 4 tablets of Misoprostol, but the effectiveness will be reduced.
How to Take Mifégyne
safe2choose recommends swallowing 1 pill of Mifégyne (200 mg) with water. If you vomit for the first 30 minutes after swallowing the Mifégyne pill, it is likely that the pill will not work and you will have to take another Mifegyne tablet.
Wait 24 to 48 hours after taking the pill, then use the recommended dose of prostaglandin.
The Side Effects of Mifegyne
Mifegyne can cause a certain increase in nausea associated with pregnancy, and it may cause abdominal cramps and bleed. As a rule, cramps and bleeding will only occur after the use of a prostaglandin-based drug in combination with the Mifégyne pill.
