Twenty women who requested early first trimester termination of pregnancy were recruited to study the tolerability of a 2-week course of oral misoprostol after termination of pregnancy by mifepristone and vaginal misoprostol. Ten patients (50%) complained of mild diarrhea during the 2-week course of misoprostol. Otherwise, there were no other significant side effects. The 2-week course of misoprostol was well tolerated by women who underwent early first trimester termination of pregnancy with mifepristone and misoprostol.
