After several hours you will swallow another different set of 4 pills. These pills are meant to induce the pregnancy.
You will be given a pill to swallow which is meant to block the hormone called (Progesterone) that is needed to maintain the pregnancy. Because this hormone is blocked, the uterine lining begins to shed, hence softening the cervix.
