If you are 65 or older, use diclofenac and misoprostol with care. You could have more side effects. NSAIDs like diclofenac and misoprostol may affect egg release (ovulation) in women. This may cause you to not be able to get pregnant. This goes back to normal when diclofenac and misoprostol is stopped. Talk with your doctor.
Here’s the deal: The “abortion pill” is the popular name for a safe and effective way to end an early pregnancy using a combination of two medicines: mifepristone and misoprostol. The first medicine (mifepristone) is given at a health center or your health care provider’s office.
Naproxen is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). It works by reducing hormones that cause inflammation and pain in the body. Naproxen is used to treat pain or inflammation caused by conditions such as arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, tendinitis, bursitis, gout, or menstrual cramps.
How effective is the abortion pill? The abortion pill is fairly effective, failing about 2% to 8% of the time. The earlier in your pregnancy, the more likely it is to be successful with termination. The higher 8% failure rate is associated with taking abortion medications later in your pregnancy and possibly outside the intended approval period.
