Directions for Use of Contrapill Kit

  • Take the contrapill kit exactly as instructed by the doctor. Follow the instructions carefully.
  • The doctor will guide how to use each of these tablets.
  • First, you must start a dose of mifepristone tablet. This medicine blocks the hormone that is necessary for pregnancy. This results in the termination of pregnancy.
  • After two days, you should take a misoprostol tablet. It increases the muscle contractions of the uterus, which causes termination of pregnancy.
  • After a couple of weeks, you must do an ultrasound and pelvic exam to ensure that you are no longer pregnant.
  • Do not forget to take all the required doses of both tablets.
  • Make sure you are at a comfortable location when the bleeding begins.
  • Go back to the doctor after one week to get examined to confirm if the pregnancy has been terminated.
