Misoprostol for Early Abortion

Gynuity Health Projects and Reproductive Health Technologies Project convened an expert meeting in 2003 looking at the use of misoprostol for abortion induction. Professionals with epidemiological, clinical and programmatic expertise reached consensus on the appropriate use of misoprostol based on the best current information. The results were compiled in a brochure called “Instructions for Use – (IFU).” The information in this document may serve as a basis for the development of clinical practice guidelines and patient and provider education materials. The brochure was reviewed in 2013 by an expert group convened by Gynuity Health Projects and updated with new information and research developments. Please note that "Abortion Induction with Misoprostol Alone in Pregnancies through 9 Weeks’ LMP" has been updated in October 2013 in the following languages: English, French, Indonesian, Portuguese, Spanish and Russian .
