How Unwanted Kit Works

Mifepristone: This is the first unwanted kit medicine. It works by blocking the effects of progesterone, which is a natural hormone that is needed for the pregnancy to grow. This stops the pregnancy from growing, and it prepares the uterus to contract and the cervix to soften and dilate. Typically, it will start working within 24-48 hours of use.

Misoprostol: The second medication in the Unwanted-Kit, typically used 24-48 hours after mifepristone, misoprostol softens and dilates the cervix, and it also causes the uterus to contract. All of these actions help expel the pregnancy. Typically, it will start working within ~1 hour of use, but it can take longer.
