Mifepristone is a medication that is primarily used as an abortion pill. It is also known by various trade names, including Mifeprex, RU-486, and the “abortion pill.” Mifepristone is a synthetic steroid compound with anti-progestational and anti-glucocorticoid activities.
When used as an abortifacient, mifepristone is typically administered in combination with another medication called misoprostol. This combination is effective in terminating early pregnancies up to 10 weeks gestation. Mifepristone works by blocking the action of progesterone, a hormone necessary for maintaining pregnancy. This causes the lining of the uterus to break down and the pregnancy to be expelled.
Apart from its use in medical abortion, mifepristone also has other medical applications. It can be used in the management of certain conditions, such as Cushing’s syndrome (a hormonal disorder) and in the preparation of the cervix for surgical abortion or labor induction. In some cases, mifepristone may be used to treat certain types of uterine fibroids.
Mifepristone is a medication used for abortion and other medical purposes. It should only be used with the guidance of a healthcare professional. It is not recommended for people with conditions like ectopic pregnancy, chronic adrenal failure, or bleeding disorders. It should not be used by those with an intrauterine device (IUD) or by individuals who are breastfeeding.
