Mifepristone is a prescription medication that is obtained from a pharmacy. It is commonly used to induce an early abortion. It is usually only prescribed within 49 days of a woman's last menstrual period.
There are several known risk factors commonly associated with Mifepristone. Heavy vaginal bleeding is one of those risk factors. Because of the severity of the risks associated with the drug, it is important that women obtain a prescription for it from a licensed physician. They must also make sure to go to all follow-up appointments to ensure the pregnancy has ended and all tissues associated with the pregnancy have been expelled.
