You should not use the medicines if:

  • you are not sure about wanting to end your pregnancy.
  • the first day of your last menstrual period was more than 10 weeks ago.
  • you have an allergy to Mifepristone, Misoprostol, or prostaglandins
  • you have one of the following diseases: Chronic adrenal failure, Hemorrhagic disorders or bleeding disorders/diseases, Inherited porphyries. (It is highly unlikely that you have one of these diseases and do not know it yet.)

  • you cannot get to a hospital or first aid centre within an hour.
