After taking the 1st dosage, i.e. Mifepristone pills
- Nausea/ Sickness
In case, you vomit within one hour of taking the first tablet, i.e. Mifepristone pill, you will have to take another pill. This is because the pill has not been digested and properly mixed into the blood stream to take effect. This is why many people buy two abortion pill kit online, to have back up pills, just in case of emergency.
If you vomit after one hour and don’t regurgitate the swallowed pills, you don’t need second dosage.
