2) Surgical abortion: For surgical abortion matter, person wey qualify to do the work go empty the uterus from de cervix to commot de belle. De procedures wey dem dey use be manual vacuum aspiration (MVA) and dilatation and evacuation (D&E).

If you get intrauterine contraceptive device for your uterus (e.g. the coil or the progesterone IUD), you must commot before your medical abortion.
After de misoprostol don melt, you fit eat as you like. Dry food (e.g crackers or toast) fit help you if you dey feel like say you wan vomit, while green leaf vegetables, eggs, and red meat fit help recover de minerals wey you lose wen you dey commot de belle.
No eat or drink for 30 minutes wen you dey wait make Misoprostol melt. After 30 minutes don pass, you fit drink water to swallow de remaining medicine and in general, drink as much water as you want to dey well well.

If you get HIV, make sure say your case no dey worse, you dey take antiretroviral medicine and your health dey make sense.
Make you no take alcohol as you dey take treatment so dat de medicine go work well. Alcohol fit also cause uterine bleeding to increase for some cases and make other medicines wey you take to reduce pain or infection to no work well (for women wey dey deal with gbege). De general recommendation be say, make you no take alcohol until you confirm say de abortion don complete and you dey feel well.
Na two ways you fit use misoprostol : you fit put am for your toto or you fit put am under your tongue. But HowToUse advise you say make you put misoprostol for under your tongue because e dey more private (the drug go disappear quick quick and e no go leave any trace for your body) and e no go make you catch bad disease.
If you get anemia (make iron low inside person blood), you need find healthcare person wey im place dey like 30 minutes from you so dat you go fit help you wen you need am. If you dey anemic, go meet doctor first before you take de abortion medicine.
Most women go commot de belle within 4 – 5 hours and dem go feel betta in less dan 24 hours. Na normal thing to continue to see small small shikini shikini blood until your next period wey go come in 3 – 4 weeks.
Both de combination of Mifepristone and Misoprostol and only Misoprostol dey work well well. But if e dey available and e no too cost for you, buy de combination of Mifepristone and Misoprostol.
No, if you use abortion medicine early e dey safe even if you use C-section born before.
Na normal thing to feel sick, dey shit anyhow, cold dey catch, or to even feel like say your bodi dey hot during dis time. Most women dey report say dem sabi wen de belle commot because de blood kon dey slow down, and dem dey start to dey feel betta.
98 women out of 100 wey use Mifepristone and Misoprostol complete dia abortion. About 95 women out of 100 use only Misoprostol take complete dia abortion.
Nothing done show say Mifepriston fit let pikin wey dem born get problem. But Misoprostol fit make pikin get problem.If you use Misoprostol and you still get belle, you fit get natural miscarriage. If you no get miscarriage and you born de pikin after 9 months, 1% chance say your pikin fit get problem dey (one pikin inside 100 dey get problem).
Some women fit need to do surgery if dem still get belle after dem don take de medicine. Remember say treatment for abortion wey no complete dey available for around de world. You get right to dis kain service, even if abortion dey legally restricted for your country.
Dem dey use Mifepristone and Misoprostol together because dem dey work well together. Misoprostol na to relax de cervix (to open de uterus) and cause de uterus go contract, dis go commot de belle sharp sharp.
No, e no safe to use abortion medicine if you know say e possible make you get ectopic pregnancy. Because you do tubal ligation, we know say wound don dey your tube (fallopian tubes). Dat fit be de reason why your last belle be ectopic pregnancy. De fallopian tubes where woman egg go meet de man sperm. De belle go first start to de grow for de tube to de womb. If your tube get wound, belle wey just start fit dey for tube. As de belle dey grow, e fit break de tub open. If de tube break, e fit cause major bleeding inside your bodi and person fit one die. You fit get anoda ectopic belle. You use de abortion medicine by yourself until your healthcare person say he dey sure say de belle dey you womb, no be for your tubes.
If you use Misoprostol medicine under your tongue, nobody fit know say you dey use abortion medicine as you go swallow everything after 30 minutes. If person ask, you fit say you get natural miscarriage. If you use Misoprostol for your toto, de bodi of de medicine fit no melt finish for one or two days. If you need to get sharp sharp medical care inside 48 hours, since you put Misoprostol for your toto, de healthcare person fit see de white bodi of de medicine inside your toto. Dat is why dis HowToUse suggest say make you use Misoprostol under your tongue instead fo your toto.
First of all, you must know say most women no go know say na dia case be dis unless dem do ultrasound. You no fit commot ectopic pregnancy for country where e no dey legal for women to commot belle, you go need to go through legal procedure before you go fit commot de belle.
