Reviews for Misoprostol

For Abortion: "Had to take this medicine because wasn't able to find heartbeat. It was the worst pain I've experienced. My Dr had prescribed me some strong pain killers and it did nothing. I was throwing up and had diarhea. I was so weak nauseous and in such pain. I was freezing and shaking so much. I felt a bit better when i finally went into a hot bath. But then trying not to fall asleep and drown. I Hated every second of it. If had to choose again probably do dnc but I guess it is different for everyone"

For Abortion: "I was 9 weeks pregnant. Wasnt ready ofcourse. Went to the dr for the actual abortion pill which cost 500 but he was out of them. So he said i have another option which will cost less. I was in 2 minds but then he told me to trust him so there he prescribed cytotec. He instructed me to insert 6 in my vagina and drink 3. When i got home i was still hesistant, then i went ahead because it was getting late. I took a shower and inserted at 9:45. About an hour later i felt slight cramps which lasted around and hour an them got worse. Not tooo major though so i took tramadol painkillers. Slept like a baby until 3 am, clotting began. Passed the fetus at 10 am an voila. Im good to go. Actual period now. Checkup in 2 days with my dr."

Cytotec (misoprostol) for Abortion: "I was 12 weeks when I went for my first ultrasound and they told me the baby had stopped developing at 8 weeks they did a follow up appointment to see if anything had changed and it didn't they told me it was a missed miscarriage and to speed up the process I was prescribed two pills inserted vaginally of cytotec I took it at 5:30pm by 11:30 I had started bleeding and had contractions at 2 am I was bleeding to much and went the the hospital where I passed the baby and was released at 8am the same morning it was probably the worse pain I have ever experienced but I found it a better option then the D&C, it worked for me but I'd advise to anyone taking it to take ibuprofen or Advil before hand to help with the pain"

For Labor Induction: "I lost a baby and they gave me these to expell the pregnancy I was hurt but than to find out I had to pay out of pocket made me feel worse like even though there was no heart beat at 12 weeks and only measuring 6 it really hurt to think I was paying 13 .00 to loose my child it made me contract about 30 min after taking the fist set I was in pain just like having one of my other children just at the end of this I wouldnt have a baby . I lost more blood than I ever seen in my life and bleed for a month after my peorids that was ALWAYS regular are every where after 10 months so ....if you get this expect labor"

Cytotec (misoprostol) for Abortion: "Had used it to induce unwanted pregnancy and it worked immediately. At first I got scared as I was clotting nonstop but suddenly I did."

For Abortion: "I am on my second day of this dose. I had headaches, dizziness, severe cramping, bloating of stomach. If you are of the faint at heart I don't recommend this pill. It has been very hard on me. I am unsure of the overall permanent effects."
