Abstract

Abstract Various routes of misoprostol have been employed in order to Induction abortion. Several studies have demonstrated that misoprostol can be given either in combination with mifepristone or alone. Higher success rate have been reported in several investigations in regimens that include a combination of misoprostol and mifepristone in second trimester. However, evidences in early pregnancy are controversial. Evidences have shown that higher and frequent doses of misoprostol are more effective. Vaginally administrated misoprostol in both first and second trimester pregnancies had higher expulsion rate and less complication compared to oral routes. The majority of participants preferred oral routes due to more convenient and privacy. Regimens that include an initial high dose of vaginally administrated misoprostol followed by frequent doses of orally administrated misoprostol had the highest acceptability and response rate.
