Are there other ways to use the Misoprostol?
We strongly advise you to use Misoprostol under your tongue. This way, no remains of the pills can be found in the event that you need to go to a hospital. There are no blood tests that can show that you have taken Misoprostol, so there will be no way to prove that you tried to do an abortion.
In countries where women can be prosecuted for having an abortion, it is not necessary to tell the medical staff that you tried to induce an abortion. You can say that you had a spontaneous miscarriage. The doctor CANNOT see the difference. The treatment of complications are also the same. The treatment is curettage, also known as vacuum aspiration, during which a doctor will remove remaining tissue from the womb. Doctors have the obligation to help in all cases.
However in some cases, like heavy nausea and vomiting, a woman might be unable to keep the tablets under the tongue for 30 minutes. In this case she can also use the tablets vaginally. She can put the tablets with her fingers as deep as possible in her vagina. (in the back near the cervix where the uterus starts) The medicines will not work when they are in the entrance of the vagina!!! The pills work even better if they are made wet before putting them in the vagina.)
Traces of the pills may be found in the vagina up to four days after inserting them, so if you have to go to the hospital you have to take them out with your fingers (after first washing your hands).
