Guidance for postabortion care (PAC) is established for the first trimester but limited in the second trimester. The authors conclude that Misoprostol with or without mifepristone is an effective treatment for second-trimester PAC. The minimum misoprostol dose is 200 μg vaginally, sublingually, or buccally every 6–12 hours.
