This article reports on a study conducted in Canada comparing the efficacy, adverse effects and acceptability of the three most common misoprostol regimens used with mifepristone for medical abortion with gestations less than 56 days' LMP. The results demonstrated that there is a range of safe and effective options for early medical abortion with mifepristone including a choice between oral and vaginal administration of misoprostol.
