What is the Unwanted-Kit?

The Unwanted-Kit is a combination of two medicines – Mifepristone and Misoprostol – which are used for abortion in pregnancies up to 11 weeks. Mifepristone blocks the pregnancy hormone needed for a pregnancy to grow, and Misoprostol helps the cervix relax and the uterus contract to expel the pregnancy. It is produced by the Mankind Pharma Ltd. company. [1]

How Does the Unwanted-Kit Work for Ending a Pregnancy?

The Unwanted-Kit pack is a combination of two abortion pills: Mifepristone and Misoprostol.

Mifepristone blocks 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. [2]

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. [2]

What is the Unwanted-Kit Dosage?

Unwanted-Kit comes in the combination of 1 pill of Mifepristone (200mg) and 4 pills Misoprostol (200 mcg each so a total of 800mcg). The recommended dosage varies based on how far along the pregnancy is.

What is the Unwanted-Kit Dosage for under 6 Weeks Pregnant?

For pregnancies under 6 weeks, the recommended Unwanted-Kit dosage is 1 pill of Mifepristone (200mg) and 4 pills of Misoprostol (a total of 800mcg). In some cases, it is also recommended to have an extra 4 pills of Misoprostol (total 1600mcg) on hand for use. [3]

What is the Unwanted-Kit Dosage for under 9 Weeks Pregnant?

For pregnancies under 9 weeks gestation, the recommended Unwanted-Kit dosage is 1 pill of Mifepristone (200mg) and 4 pills of Misoprostol (a total of 800mcg). In some cases, it is also recommended to have an extra 4 pills of Misoprostol (total 1600 mcg) on hand for use. [3]

What is the Unwanted-Kit Dosage for 9 to 11 Weeks Pregnant?

For pregnancies between 9-11 weeks gestation, you can also use the Unwanted-Kit dosage of 1 pill of Mifepristone (200mg) and 4 pills of Misoprostol (800mcg), but if possible it is recommended to have a total of 8 pills of Misoprostol available (1600mcg) because it increases the chances of success [4], [5]

What is the Price of Unwanted-Kit?

The price of 1 pack of Unwanted-Kit is often quite low, but it will vary depending on geographic location. Different countries have different laws about abortion, and this can also affect the price of the kit. In India, the Unwanted-Kit costs around Rs 386 – Rs 400. [1]

How to Take Unwanted-Kit

Unwanted-Kit contains a combination of 1 Mifepristone pill and 4 Misoprostol pills.

First, you will swallow 1 pill of Mifepristone (200mg) with water. If you throw up in the first 30 minutes after swallowing the Mifepristone, it is likely that the pill will not work and you will need another pill of Mifepristone.

Wait 24-48 hours after taking the pill of Mifepristone.

Then, place 4 pills of Misoprostol under your tongue (sublingually) and let them dissolve for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, you may drink water to swallow any remnants of the pills. [1], [2]

What are the Side Effects of Unwanted-Kit

When used for abortion, the intended side effects of Misoprostol are abdominal cramping and bleeding. Pregnancy-related symptoms like nausea and vomiting may increase after taking the Mifepristone and increase again after taking Misoprostol, but they will weaken and disappear during the abortion process. In addition, it is possible to experience side effects such as diarrhea, fevers, and chills. [5]

Typically, the bleeding lasts for about 12-14 days and the other symptoms are limited to 24 hours. [1]

The Mifepristone tablet (200mg) is light yellow in color and is cylindrical in shape.
