Q. I delivered a child 6 months back. Though my husband and I were using protection, but I discovered that I am pregnant again. Since our first child is so young, my husband and I have decided to abort this pregnancy. We have been advised to take Mifegest 200, 2 tablets and Cytolog 200 2 tablets after 48 hours, as I am only 5 weeks pregnant. Are there any side affects of these medicines? Are other safer drugs available in the market?

A.  Pregnancy upto 49 days gestation can be terminated with Mifegest. Three (3) tablets to be taken together (in one dose) followed by 2 tablets of Cytolog after 48 hours under medical supervision. Side effects may or may not occur but usually are vaginal bleeding for up to 12 days, stomach cramping, nausea, vomiting.
