In the UK, mifepristone and gemeprost are licensed for medical termination of pregnancy (TOP) in the first trimester up to 63 days' amenorrhoea. Current practice, however, is to use low-dose (200 mg) mifepristone and misoprostol. We report a large cohort study using these drugs for medical TOP in the first trimester after 63 days amenorrhoea. Of 415 patients undergoing the procedure, 392 (95%) aborted completely and 96% required only two doses of misoprostol. We conclude that the regime is effective with few complications, however certain safeguards may be necessary for its widespread introduction
