About MIFEGEST TABLET
Mifegest Kit Tablet belongs to the class of medication called ‘progestin antagonist‘ used in combination with best to induce a medical abortion. Mifegest Kit Tablet is primarily used to end an early pregnancy (lasting up to 70 days or less than this) or an unwanted pregnancy with medication help.
Mifegest Kit Tablet contains Mifepristone, which works by blocking the effect of progesterone (female hormone), which is needed to sustain a pregnancy. In the absence of progesterone, the lining of the uterus breaks down as it does every month during the menstrual cycle, and the growth of pregnancy is stopped. It takes approximately 24-48 hours for MIFEGEST TABLET to show effect. Once it starts acting, you will experience uterine bleeding. But no uterine bleeding does not mean that the abortion is complete.
Having a medical abortion is a very emotional decision. You should be mentally prepared for all the risks a surgical absorption could lead to, like incomplete abortion, heavy and prolonged bleeding (may last up to 30 days), fever, digestive system discomfort. Also, if the medication does not work, it can lead to an unwanted ongoing pregnancy, leading to fetal defects. So, to avoid any complications, keep in regular touch with your doctor and do as advised.
MIFEGEST TABLET should be taken regularly in dose and duration as advised by the doctor, preferably with food. It would be best to take it at a fixed time every day. It is a tablet and should be taken orally with a glass of water. You may experience nausea, uterine cramps, vomiting, diarrhoea, infection following abortion, dizziness, and uterine bleeding in some cases. Most of these side effects of MIFEGEST TABLET subside with time. But if your vaginal bleeding does not, please visit the doctor immediately, and it requires immediate medical attention.
MIFEGEST TABLET should not be stopped abruptly without consulting the doctor as it may lead to incomplete abortion. Inform your doctor before starting MIFEGEST TABLET if you have or ever had an ectopic pregnancy (when the fetus grows in the fallopian tube), using an intrauterine device, or you are breastfeeding, any bleeding disorder or heart problem. Do not do strenuous activities like running, heavy exercise, or driving to avoid excessive bleeding. The doctor will also check with ultrasound if the absorption is complete as no bleeding does not mean that abortion is complete.
