A detailed how-to information on medical abortion - the safest and most effective method of self-induced abortion is available at ---
There are several websites that offer the medical abortion pharmaceuticals online for sale, however many of them are suspect or proven to take your money, but not send the pills or send pills that do not contain the medical abortion medicines mifepristone and misoprostol.
The best and safest way a woman can do an abortion herself until the 9th week of pregnancy is with the use of two medicines called Mifepristone (also known as the abortion pill, RU 486, Mifegyn, Mifeprex), and Misoprostol (also known as Cytotec, Arthrotec, Oxaprost , Cyprostol, Mibetec, Prostokos or Misotrol)
Women on Waves advice regarding how to obtain misoprostol:
"The brand names for Misoprostol are Cytotec and Arthrotec and Oxaprost or Cyprostol , Prostokos or Misotrol. Sometimes it is sold over the counter without a prescription. Sometimes a prescription is asked. It is less likely that one would need a prescription for Arthrotec.
Misoprostol is used prevents gastric ulcers
'''Cytotec and Cyprostol and Mibetec or Misotrol', Prostokos'' are brand names for Misoprostol.
Arthrotec and Oxaprost contains Misoprostol and a painkiller called Diclofenac, It is used for pain in the joints, or arthritis. Arthrotec is generally more expensive than Cytotec.
- Cytotec (200µg Misoprostol)
- Gymiso (200µg Misoprostol)
- Prostokos (25µg Misoprostol)
- Vagiprost (25µg Misoprostol)
- Arthrotec 50 or 75 (200µg Misoprostol)
- Oxaprost 50 or 75 (200µg Misoprostol)
To obtain one these medicines, one could for example say that your grandmother has rheumatoid arthritis so severely she can not go to the pharmacy herself, and that you do not have money to pay for a doctor to get the prescriptions for the tablets.
If there are problems to get the medicines in one pharmacy, try another pharmacy, or a male friend or partner might have fewer problems obtaining them. Or, perhaps you can find a doctor willing to prescribe them. Usually one can expect more luck at the smaller pharmacies that do not belong to a chain.
Sometimes Cytotec can also be bought on the black market (places where you can also buy Marijuana). However try to make sure that is really is Misoprostol and not fake or some other medicine!
The woman should buy at least 12 pills of 200 mcg Misoprostol. One pill of Cytotec or Arthrotec should contain 200 micrograms of Misoprostol. Look for the dosage of Misoprostol on the package, usually the tablets contain 200 mcg but other dosages do excist. If the pills do not contain 200 micrograms of Misoprostol, recalculate the number of pills so that the same total amount of Misoprostol is used. "
