Use of MTP kit (Mifepristone and Misoprostol combination pack) for 1st trimester MTP (up to 63 days)

It is medically prescribed if you are within 63 days of gestation. Doctors do not opt for this process if you are over 10 weeks pregnant. The kit consists of 5 tablets- 1 Mifepristone tablet (200 mg) and 4 tablets of Misoprostol (200 mcg). Mifepristone is a synthetic steroid taken orally with water. It interferes with the progesterone secretion that terminates the pregnancy. Misoprostol is a synthetic prostaglandin that causes the cervix to soften, contract the uterus and allows the emptying of the uterine contents. It is administered vaginally or orally depending on the patient’s condition. Misoprostol may be self-administered or administered under a gynaecologist’s supervision so that the patient has access to the health facilities, if necessary.
The dosage is 1 tablet of Mifepristone, followed by 4 tablets of Misoprostol after 1-3 days. If abortion fails to occur after the administration of Misoprostol, a second dose of Misoprostol (2 tablets) is administered. In case of an intrauterine pregnancy, termination by surgery is recommended.
The MTP kit is prescribed by gynecologists to terminate a pregnancy in patients who are within 9 weeks of their gestation period.
