How To Use Unwanted Kit?

A Mankind Unwanted Kit is made up of 1 pill called mifepristone and 4 pills called misoprostol that your OB/GYN can give you. These are taken to terminate an unwanted pregnancy, as long as it’s been within 11 weeks of conception.

If you’re nervous or worried about the process, there’s no reason to fear—you can take the pills a day or two apart in the comfort of your own home.

It’s a good idea to ask someone you trust to be with you as support, if possible, so you don’t have to go through the symptoms alone.

What is Unwanted Kit?

A combination of two medicines, an ‘Unwanted Kit’ is used for terminating a pregnancy or inducing a medical abortion. It terminates the pregnancy by blocking the action of progesterone (a female hormone necessary to maintain pregnancy)

How To Use Unwanted Kit?

1)  The Unwanted Kit is only meant to be taken if you’re 11 weeks pregnant (or fewer). So you’d have to count the days and weeks from the first day of your last menstrual cycle.

2) Take a mifepristone pill with a glass of water. You must consume it 24-48 hours before taking the misoprostol pills.

3) Take four misoprostol pills after 1-2 days of consuming the mifepristone pill. You can consume them at your preferred time of the day. These pills aren’t meant for swallowing. You should keep them under your tongue carefully so that they dissolve.

4) You’ll have to wait 30 minutes for the misoprostol pills to dissolve. Don’t eat or drink anything during this period.

5) After 30 minutes, drink water to cleanse your mouth. This will also ensure the leftover pills get absorbed.

Here Is a Pro Tip for Unwanted Kit Usage:

Ask an individual (friend or family) you trust to keep you company throughout the process. This would ensure you have help as and when you need it. In addition, stock up on pain medication before using the Unwanted Kit.

Mankind Unwanted Pregnancy Kit Quick Guide

Take the pills in the kit in the first 11 weeks of your pregnancy. Take the mifepristone pill first, with a glass of water. Then, 24-48 hours later, place 4 misoprostol pills under your tongue, wait 30 minutes for them to dissolve, then wash them down with water.

Take the pills within the first 11 weeks of your pregnancy. Mifepristone and misoprostol are only meant to be taken if you’re 11 weeks (77 days) pregnant or fewer. If you’ve been pregnant for more than 11 weeks, call your OB/GYN to find out what your best and safest options are.[1]

  • Count the weeks starting from the first day of your last menstrual cycle.
  • Avoid drinking alcohol before you take your pills since it will make you dehydrated later on.

Swallow the mifepristone pill with a glass of water.
 Plan to take this pill a full 24-48 hours before you take the misoprostol pills. You likely won’t feel any symptoms after taking mifepristone and can go about your normal day freely.[2]

  • If you throw up in the first 30 minutes after taking the pill, it likely won’t work and you might have to take it again. Call your doctor to see if you need to take another dose.

Place 4 misoprostol pills under your tongue after 24-48 hours. Wait a full day or two after taking the mifepristone pill—it doesn’t matter when during this time you take it, it’ll still be just as effective. Place each pill under your tongue carefully so you’re sure not to swallow them. These pills are meant to dissolve in your mouth instead of being swallowed.[3]

  • Plan out the timing so that you’ll be at home resting comfortably once you take the misoprostol pills.
  • Don’t worry if your mouth feels dry or tastes chalky once the pills are under your tongue; this is completely normal.
  • If your kit uses the buccal form for the misoprostol, then hold them against your cheek or on the side of your mouth rather than under your tongue

Wait 30 minutes for the pills to dissolve.
 Set a timer to help you remember how long it’s been and remember not to swallow them. The majority of each pill will dissolve in your mouth in 30 minutes so that your system can absorb them.[4]

  • Avoid eating or drinking anything during the 30 minutes that you wait for the pills to dissolve.
  • The buccal form of the pill only takes around 3 minutes.

Drink water after 30 minutes to swallow what’s left of the pills. If the pills aren’t completely dissolved after 30 minutes, that’s okay. Take a sip or two of water to cleanse your mouth and swallow it so that any leftover pill particles will be in your system.[5]

  • If you throw up before the 30 minutes are up, they may not work. But if you throw up after the pills have dissolved and are in your system, you’re likely okay.

Wait 3 hours and take 4 more pills if you’re 9-11 weeks pregnant or aren’t bleeding. Not everyone needs to take 4 more pills. If it’s been several hours and you’re still not experiencing any bleeding, or you’re at least 9 weeks along, this means you need another dose.[6]

  • To take another dose, repeat the same process and set the 4 misoprostol pills under your tongue to let them dissolve for 30 minutes.
  • If you don’t end up taking 4 extra pills but your doctor gave them to you, ask your OB/GYN what you should do with them.
