If you want to take this kit, make sure that this is prescribed by gynecologist after proper examination and tests. It should only be taken in presence of doctor and breast feeding must be avoided during the treatment. Remember it has serious side effects, so take it only under doctor's supervision

MTP kits are NOT sold in medical stores. As per MTP laws only trained MBBS doctors and Gynecologists ( MD/MS ) can prescribe MTP tablets that too if the patient meets the criteria for abortion. If you have procured the tablets then surely the doctor who has given it would have told you about the use. Usually MTP kits are NOT given for home consumption as there is potential for misuse and the tablets are given to be consumed in the presence of gynecologists..... With instructions to follow up in case there is excess bleeding or pain or after 15 days for ultrasound to ascertain completion of abortion.
