Increasing women's choices in medical abortion: A study of misoprostol 400 μg swallowed immediately or held sublingually following 200 mg mifepristone

This article reports on results of a clinical trial evaluating two routes of misoprostol administration following mifepristone for early medical abortion. For gestations through 56 days since last menstrual period 400mcg of oral misoprostol performed better than a 400mcg sublingual dose when following 200mg mifepristone although not significantly so.
