Dinoprostone is a prostaglandin, prescribed for termination of pregnancy, evacuation of the uterine contents in the missed abortion, labor induction (rarely used), and dilatation of the cervix prior to labor.
Ethacridine is used for second-trimester abortion between the thirteenth and the twentieth week of gestation.
The abortion usually occurs between 20 and 40 hours after instillation of the drug. It is sometimes combined with a prostaglandin or oxytocin for a quicker effect.
It is also used locally as an antiseptic on open or infected wounds.
Mifepristone is a synthetic steroid, used alone or together with another medication, to end an early pregnancy (within 7 weeks of the start of a woman's last menstrual period). It blocks the hormone needed for pregnancy to continue. It is also indicated for high blood sugar levels (hyperglycemia) in adults with endogenous Cushing’s syndrome.
Oxytocin is a uterine stimulant, prescribed for the initiation of uterine contractions and induction of labor in women as well as stimulation of contractions in cases where the uterus does not contract enough during labor. It is also used to help abort the fetus in cases of incomplete abortion or miscarriage, and control bleeding after childbirth. It may be used for breast engorgement.
