    Recently the government has approved of a medicine for abortion. It is not available over the counter at chemist shops. It is available with gynaecologists. It has to be taken within forty-nine days or seven weeks of pregnancy, that is about nineteen to twenty days after a missed period. Before the medicine is given, the doctor will check and rule out an ectopic pregnancy. The medicine is made up of two drugs; one is an anti-pregnancy (anti-progesterone) drug and the other is an exclusive drug (prostaglandin). After it is given, bleeding starts and continues for seven to ten days. After the bleeding stops, an ultrasound is done to make sure the abortion is complete. In case of an incomplete abortion, a minor operation (D&C) will be performed. This medicine, therefore, can be had only where medical support and backup are available. It has a ninety-five percent success rate. In five percent cases when it fails, it has to be backed up by a D&C.
