How can I manage pain associated with the abortion pills?

Ibuprofen is available for purchase in most countries, and this is the recommended medication to use for the pain and cramping. You can use 3-4 (200mg) ibuprofen tablets every 6-8 hours for pain.

Tylenol can also be used, 2 (325 mg tablets) of tylenol every 4-6 hours for pain. Heating pads or massaging the lower stomach (uterus) may also be helpful for the pain.
