Patent Claims: 1. An oral pharmaceutical tablet comprising from 1 to 18 wt % ulipristal acetate, wherein ulipristal acetate is present in an amount ranging from 1 mg to 50 mg, 50 to 98.5 wt % of a diluent, 0.5 to 10 wt % of croscarmellose sodium, and 0.5 to 5 wt % of magnesium stearate, 0 to 10 wt % of a binding agent, wherein at least 80% of ulipristal acetate present in the tablet is dissolved within about 20 minutes when said tablet is subjected to an in vitro dissolution assay in a paddle apparatus at 37.degree. C..+-.0.5.degree. C., and in HCl 0.1N as dissolution medium.

2. The tablet of claim 1, wherein at least 90% of ulipristal acetate present in the tablet is dissolved within about 20 minutes when the said tablet is subjected to an in vitro dissolution assay in a paddle apparatus at 37.degree. C..+-.0.5.degree. C., a rotation speed of 50 rpm, and in HCl 0.1N as dissolution medium.

3. The tablet of claim 1, which comprises a binding agent.
