How Mifegest Kit Works
Mifegest Kit contains two medicines Mifepristone and Misoprostol, which cause abortion. Mifepristone blocks the effects of progesterone, a natural female hormone that is needed for the pregnancy to sustain. Without this hormone, the lining of the uterus breaks down as it does during a menstrual period and stops the growth of the pregnancy. Misoprostol is a synthetic prostaglandin E1 which is a potent inhibitor of gastric acid secretion in humans. It also causes the cervix to soften and the uterus to contract.
