About Instakit Kit Tablet 1's

 

Instakit Kit Tablet 1's belongs to a group of gynaecological medication called ‘Abortifacient’ used for the medical termination of the pregnancy before 63 days after the first day of the last menses period. Instakit Kit Tablet 1's also works in the second trimester of the pregnancy.

Instakit Kit Tablet 1's contains two medicines, namely: Mifepristone and Misoprostol. Mifepristone is an anti-hormone (anti-progestogen) that acts by blocking the effects of progesterone hormone required in women to continue the pregnancy. On the other hand, Misoprostol is a prostaglandin that increases womb’s (uterus) contraction and dilates the cervix, thereby expelling the pregnancy. Thus, Instakit Kit Tablet 1's together cause termination of pregnancy and must be used one after the other for medical abortion.

A medical abortion generally involves 2-3 visits to a doctor or clinic, which includes giving of medicines and then confirmation of termination of pregnancy. Following are the schedule involved in medical abortion:

  • Day 1: Medical counselling and examination where doctor instructs to take 1 tablet of mifepristone (200 mcg)
  • Day 2 to 3: You must return to the hospital/clinic 36 to 48 hours after taking the first dose of mifepristone. Your doctor will tell you about this. The tablet of misoprostol (800 mcg) will be now given either orally or vaginally.
  • Day 7 to 14: Doctor will confirm and make sure whether the medical abortion has been completed or not. If the abortion is not complete, you might require more follow-up visits.

You may experience nausea, uterine cramps, vomiting, diarrhoea, infection following abortion, dizziness, and uterine bleeding in some cases. Most of these side effects of Instakit Kit Tablet 1's subside with time. But if vaginal bleeding does not stop, please visit the doctor immediately, as it requires immediate medical attention.

Instakit Kit Tablet 1's should not be stopped abruptly without consulting the doctor as it may lead to incomplete abortion. Inform your doctor before starting Instakit Kit Tablet 1's if you have or ever had an ectopic pregnancy (when the womb grows in the fallopian tube), using an intrauterine device, or you are breastfeeding, any bleeding disorder or heart problem. Do not do strenuous activities like running, heavy exercise, or driving to avoid excessive bleeding. The doctor will also check with ultrasound if the absorption is complete as no bleeding does not mean that abortion is complete.

FAQs

Instakit Kit Tablet 1's contains Mifepristone and Misoprostol. Mifepristone works by blocking the effect of progesterone (female hormone), which is needed to sustain a pregnancy. In the absence of progesterone, the lining of the uterus breaks down as it does every month during the menstrual cycle, and the growth of pregnancy is stopped. Misoprostol is a prostaglandin analog, which helps in increasing the uterine contractions and relaxing the cervix. Misoprostol should be taken 24-36 hours after taking mifepristone either orally or vaginally.
