Patient :I found out I was pregnant today and had 200mcg of misoprostal left over from my previous abortion a few months ago. I took it today and have light cramping and spotting. Is this dosage enough to abort?
Thank you for your question. This dosage may not be enough to induce abortion. Current guidelines suggest 400mcg of misoprostol taken once orally to terminate pregnancy. You will need to see your physician for reevaluation.
