Medical Abortion Regimens Improvement

Medical abortion regimens using mifepristone with misoprostol and misoprostol alone are quickly gaining support worldwide as safe and effective alternatives to surgical abortion. However, it is widely believed that the most frequently registered regimen may not be ideal for use in a range of settings. Refinements to the standard regimen of mifepristone and misoprostol promise to increase access to this method while sustaining high safety, efficacy, and acceptability profiles. Each of these refinements also may lower the costs of providing safe abortion services.

Gynuity conducts a significant amount of clinical research with the goal of refining medical abortion regimens in order to increase efficacy and acceptability, and reduce side effects and costs associated with the method.
