The secondary abortion tablet also known as Misoprostol or Cytolog is generally used in a regimen where it is consumed 24-48 hours after the dosage of Mifepristone.
In many cases, women tend only buy Misoprostol online, (not with Mifeprex) for having their pregnancy terminated. About 95 out of 100 women have successful pregnancy terminations with Misoprostol only.
