What are the most effective drugs used to abort an early pregnancy? #713/13

Which drugs can I use to abort a pregnancy below 3 months?

Good morning,


The three medical approaches used to unduce an abortion in the first trimester of pregnancy are:

1.    Mifepristone (RU 486) AND Misoprostol (most effective)

2.    Methotrexate and misoprostol

3.    Misoprostol alone


Hope this information is what you are looking for.


Good luck!
