Most people feel fine after taking this pill. You can continue all of your regular activities. You may have some vaginal bleeding but may not - either is okay.
It’s unlikely but if you throw up in the first 30 minutes after taking it, the pill probably won’t work. If this happens, please contact us. If you throw up after 30 minutes, you don’t need to contact us because the medicine has been absorbed.

Choose a time to start Step 2 when you’ve had a good meal and plenty of rest.
30 minutes before Step 2, take 800 mg of ibuprofen (4 over-the-counter tablets)
This will help decrease your cramps and bleeding, which usually start a few hours after Step 2.
You must complete Step 2 even if you have started bleeding.

You only need to complete Step 3 if:
Put 2 misoprostol pills on one side of your mouth (between your cheek and gums), and the other 2 on the other side of your mouth. Wait 30 minutes for the pills to dissolve, then swallow what is left of the pills. It is okay to swallow your saliva as the pills dissolve.
*If you are less than 9 weeks pregnant and have bleeding as heavy as a period within 24 hours after Step 2, you can skip Step 3.
