Mifeprex (mifepristone) Tablets
- I have read the attached Medication Guide for using Mifeprex and misoprostol to end my pregnancy.
- I discussed the information with my health care provider (provider).
- My provider answered all my questions and told me about the risks and benefits of using Mifeprex and misoprostol to end my pregnancy.
- I believe I am no more than 49 days (7 weeks) pregnant.
- I understand that I will take Mifeprex in my provider's office (Day 1).
- I understand that I will take misoprostol in my provider's office two days after I take Mifeprex (Day 3).
- My provider gave me advice on what to do if I develop heavy bleeding or need emergency care due to the treatment.
- Bleeding and cramping do not mean that my pregnancy has ended. Therefore, I must return to my provider's office in about 2 weeks (about Day 14) after I take Mifeprex to be sure that my pregnancy has ended and that I am well.
- I know that, in some cases, the treatment will not work. This happens in about 5 to 8 women out of 100 who use this treatment.
- I understand that if my pregnancy continues after any part of the treatment, there is a chance that there may be birth defects. If my pregnancy continues after treatment with Mifeprex and misoprostol, I will talk with my provider about my choices, which may include a surgical procedure to end my pregnancy.
- I understand that if the medicines I take do not end my pregnancy and I decide to have a surgical procedure to end my pregnancy, or if I need a surgical procedure to stop bleeding, my provider will do the procedure or refer me to another provider who will. I have that provider's name, address and phone number.
- I have my provider's name, address and phone number and know that I can call if I have any questions or concerns.
- I have decided to take Mifeprex and misoprostol to end my pregnancy and will follow my provider's advice about when to take each drug and what to do in an emergency.
- I will do the following:
- Contact my provider right away if in the days after treatment I have a fever of 100.4°F or higher that lasts for more than 4 hours or severe abdominal pain.
- Contact my provider right away if I have heavy bleeding (soaking through two thick full-size sanitary pads per hour for two consecutive hours).
- Contact my provider right away if I have abdominal pain or discomfort, or I am “feeling sick”, including weakness, nausea, vomiting or diarrhea, more than 24 hours after taking misoprostol.
- Take the MEDICATION GUIDE with me when I visit an emergency room or a provider who did not give me Mifeprex, so that they will understand that I am having a medical abortion with Mifeprex.
- Return to my provider’s office in 2 days (Day 3) to check if my pregnancy has ended. My provider will give me misoprostol if I am still pregnant.
- Return to my provider’s office about 14 days after beginning treatment to be sure that my pregnancy has ended and that I am well.
