Using pills instead of vacuum aspiration for menstrual regulation could increase access to services and reduce high levels of related morbidity in Bangladesh. This study investigated the efficacy and acceptability (to both women and providers) of using a mifepristone-misoprostol regimen for menstrual regulation. Findings include high levels of success and patient satisfaction. Providers became more comfortable with the method after gaining experience.
