Gestational Limits

Evidence from other countries (including the United States) indicates that Mifepristone can safely be used beyond the mandated 49 days of gestation (7 weeks from the last menstrual period). In many countries, this medication is commonly used for medical abortion for pregnancies of up to ten weeks of gestation (and beyond). In March 2016, the United States Food and Drug Administration revised its approval of Mifeprex, the American equivalent of Mifegymiso, to terminate pregnancies of up to 70 days.
