MIFEPRISTONE 10 MG – The tablet is an anti-progestational steroid class of medicine used for the medical termination of pregnancy. It helps by blocking the action of progesterone, an essential hormone for the development of pregnancy. Winfertility is manufacturing the medicine by the name of FIBROTWIST-10.
How does the medicine work?
The sole aim of the medicine is to avoid pregnancy. This medicine is used to cause an abortion during the early part of pregnancy. It is used up to week 10 of pregnancy (up to 70 days after the first day of your last menstrual period). This medicine effectively blocks the natural female hormone, called progesterone, that is required for your pregnancy to continue.
In the absence of progesterone, the lining of the uterus breaks down like it happens every month during the menstrual cycle, and the growth of pregnancy is stopped. It takes approximately 24-48 hours for the medicine to show effect. Once it starts acting, you will experience uterine bleeding. Do not use it without the doctor’s prescription.
Major side effects
- Uterine cramps
- Infection following abortion
- Uterine bleeding
These are the common side effects of these medicines. If other side effects continue to happen then you must seek medical attention. You must visit a doctor to avoid any further worse health conditions. Things can go south with this medicine only if the medicine reacts.
Women who have an ectopic pregnancy (a pregnancy outside of the uterus, problems with the adrenal glands (the glands near the kidneys), currently taking corticosteroid therapy (medications), have an allergic reaction to mifepristone, misoprostol, or similar drugs, have bleeding problems or taking the blood-thinning drug (warfarin, clopidogrel, aspirin, heparin, etc.) should not use this medicine and seek the guidance of a doctor. After using this medicine if you start feeling sleepy, do not drive or operate heavy machinery. You should also follow up with your doctor for constant monitoring of abortion. If medical termination does not happen or becomes unsuccessful, it should be terminated surgically as it can lead to foetal defects.
The conclusion states that medicine should not be taken without the guidance of a doctor. It is important to consult a doctor and then take the medicine. If the abortion does not take place it can cause severe harm to the body resulting in foetal defects. Winfertility is manufacturing the medicine but only sells it with the description from the doctor.
