Its inhibition results in the breakdown of embryo and results in abortion.
Misoprostol (200mcg) is a synthetic prostaglandin, acts by inhibiting the section of gastric acid. Thereby induces contraction motion within the uterus ranging from mild to the moderate level. This motion ruptures and expels the fetus out of the dilated cervix and the fetus got aborted.
