Abstract

Introduction: Termination of Pregnancy (ToP) is an obstetric procedure that can be performed by surgical or medical techniques during the first or second trimester of pregnancy. Medical ToP is recommended in the second trimester owing to its low rate of maternal morbidity. Low-dose misoprostol is an effective option in such cases.
