This study sought to assess the feasibility and acceptability of introducing medical abortion up to 63 days’ LMP in Uzbekistan, with the option of home administration of misoprostol. Findings include a high success rate and high acceptability among participants. In addition, almost all women chose to administer the misoprostol at home.
