Mifepristone and Misoprostol Versus Misoprostol Alone for Mid-trimester Termination of Pregnancy (14-21 Weeks LMP)
The primary goal of this study is to determine the clinical advantage of pre-treatment with mifepristone in second trimester misoprostol induction abortion. This will be a randomized controlled double-blinded trial of 20 women comparing misoprostol alone to mifepristone plus misoprostol for second trimester (14-21 weeks' LMP) medical abortion.
