Mifepristone & Misoprostol Combination Protocol

First day:
Swallow one 200mg mifepristone pill. (Mifepristone is the larger pill in the kit or bag.)  

36-48 hours later:
Misoprostol is not swallowed. You may put the pills inside your cheeks or under your tongue (whichever method you prefer). Hold them there for 30 minutes without swallowing while your body absorbs the medicine. Then swallow the pills with a drink.

Misoprostol pills vary based on manufacturer. Miso from a trusted source will contain 200mcg of miso regardless of its appearance. 

*In less than 1% of abortion pill usage, aftercare is required for a complication. In aftercare, vaginal use of the pills may be detected. Pills taken by mouth and absorbed then swallowed are undetectable.
