Dr. Nicholas Fogelson
Specializes in Gynecology
??: Syntocinon (pitocin) is very effective at causing contractions, more so at later gestational ages. It is used for many indications, and its effectiveness varies for those indications (ie induction of labor, cessation of postpartum hemmorhage). Induction success varies greatly based on patient and pregnancy characteristics.
