My GYN prescribed me Misoprostol for an IUD insertion tomorrow, she prescribed me 200 mcg every 6 hours for 4 doses. Is diarrhea & cramping/stomach upset normal? Will I bleed if I continue with the other 3 doses? Do I really need to take this before?

Give your doc a call: Misoprostol does make it a little easier to insert an IUD but diarrhea and cramping are possible side effects. I've inserted many IUDs without prepping with Misoprostol and the difference between those that take it and those who don't is small. I don't know your specific case. Your doc deserves a call if you are considering going against his/her advice. Best wishes! ...Read more

Marvelon: Agree w dr. Raff. Marvelon (desogestrel & ethinylestradiol) can sometimes cause nausea & vomiting or liver problems, however I did not note severe gas or diarrhea listed as side effects.
