The use of prostaglandins is a feature of a variety of termination techniques, but they may be used alone, especially in the second trimester.

Prostaglandins in the form of pessaries are use to soften the cervix before induction of abortion. Other preparations may be given by the extra-amniotic route to induce late therapeutic abortion, directly into the amniotic cavity, or as a gel into the cervical canal.
