Abstract

Methods A total of 118 women requiring second-trimester pregnancy termination were randomly assigned to one of three treatment groups: 400 mu g 3-hourly in group A (n = 39), 600 mu g 6-hourly in group B (n = 39), and 800 mu g 12-hourly in group C (n = 40). Misoprostol tablets moistened with 3 ml of 5% acetic acid were placed into the posterior vaginal fornix.
