    My friend has taken the abortion pills before, and her doctor required her to take the pills orally and not vaginally. My question is, What is the difference of it being done orally and vaginally? Reply

    Hi, Taking the pills orally and vaginally would be based on the growth and development of the foetus. So your Gynecologists would suggest you to take the pills orally or Vaginally or even both based on duration of the foetus growth. Caution: Abortion pills should be absolutely practiced by an Obstetricians Gynecologists only and this kit is not safe to use at home.
