What is the Cytolog kit?
The abortion kit named Cytolog is a combi pack of misoprostol & mifepristone that is utilized as an abortion pill to hinder the unplanned pregnancy which is in its gestation period (i.e 8 weeks or less). It can be taken in 2 methods, one is buccally and the second one is vaginal. It begins to terminate the pregnancy within 72 hours after its consumption. Women can opt for whichever method she wants. The pill helps to wipe out the egg from the uterus medically. It works excellently to block and terminate the pregnancy easily within a week if it is taken in combination with Mifepristone. You just need to take the dosage as directed. Do not take an overdose if you do not observe bleeding. Consult your medical practitioner if the bleeding is not observed within 24 hours of the intake of the abortion pill.
How does the Cytolog pill work?
The active component of the pill along with the Mifepristone conducts the course of medical abortion. Mifepristone works by making the uterus layer thin, detaches the embryo, and increases the uterine and cervix narrowing; similarly, Misoprostol induces uterine retrenchments and creates exclusion of the embryo. Although the tablet alone is considered excellent to end an unwanted pregnancy, its success rate is very low when used alone. Thus, it is recommended to take it along with Mifepristone so that it helps in a successful termination.
What is the Dosage Consumption?
After taking the first pill, Mifepristone you have to wait for 1-2 days and then take the second pill. The medication successfully leads to pregnancy termination if consumed within a period of 9 weeks, it should be consumed orally or vaginally without breaking, crushing, or chewing the pills.
What is the exact dose of the Cytolog pill?

Some people also use the pill to enlarge the cervix to prepare for surgical abortion.
