Misoprostol (Definition)

Misoporstol (Cytotec ) is a labor inducer is a kind of women's health and pregnancy drug. Misoprostol is a medication that causes the uterus to contract. This can be used to induce labor. It is also used to help a miscarriage pass more quickly. It is either taken by mouth or as tablets placed into the vagina. Misoprostol causes significant cramping and, if it is used to pass a miscarriage, causes vaginal bleeding. This is a normal ...Read more

I have taken mifepristone and also have to take misoprostol, what is the minimum time gap btwn each?

Depends on route: A medical abortion or an induced miscarriage can occur with either the use of mifepristone or misoprostol however both have unacceptably high failure rates on their own. They should be used together either simultaneously if miso given vaginally or 24h apart if miso given bucchally. It is effective up to 10wks but never 100% effective. That's why GYN/MD follow up is critical. Do not try on your own ...Read more

Hi I am 6 week pregnant . I want to take Unwanted kit (mifepristone & misoprostol). What should be the ideal gap of time in taking mifepristone and misoprostal.? Should misoprostal take orally or vaginally? After how much time it will start bleeding after

Ideal is 6-8 hours: You can use the misoprostol vaginally, in the cheek (buccally) or orally. There are fewer adverse affects if you place the tablets vaginally. Good evidence shows that placing the tablets vaginally 6-8 hours after the mifepristone is as effective as after 24 hours. So the least side effects and most effective is placing them vaginally after 6-8 hours. bleeding usually starts after 4-6 hours. ...Read more

Hi Hi I am 6 week pregnant . I want to take Unwanted kit (mifepristone & misoprostol). I decided to take it next week. But i am suffering from pain in lower abdomen and fever. Can i take any painkiller? Kindly suggest any medicine for pain and fever.

Please see a doctor: Lower abdominal pain during early pregnancy can be a warning sign of ectopic pregnancy. You really need to rule that possibility out before proceeding with the medications you are planning to use. In addition, fever can be a sign of infection, and you need to be evaluated to find out what the fever is coming from (an STD, a bladder infection, etc) so it can be treated appropriately ASAP. ...Read more

 takn mifepristone and misoprostol after whch bleeding for 2 days den stopped can i now confirm prgncy by hpt does it gv accurate results now?

Urine test no suited: Urine tests are not suited to determine, if an abortion was successful, because they just tell whether or not there is pregnancy hormone in the urine, but not how much. Blood tests can detect the amount of hormone in the blood stream. In case of an abortion, the pregnancy hormone concentration cuts in half every two days. I can take days and weeks for pregnancy hormone to be cleared. ...Read more

Hi there, can mifepristone and misoprostol be detected in a urine sample taken to check for a UTI?

Maybe if they look: The usual urine testing for a UTI consists of examining a concentrated amount for germs or pus, and a strip lined with disclosure chemicals to detect protein, sugar,ketones, and other factors common to urinary issues. A sample is also sent to see if germs will grow in the lab. It does not look for the drugs listed, or any other drug, unless specifically ordered by the doc. ...Read more

If we see heartbeat on stomach does it refers to pregnency?? even after having -ve home test nd use of misoprostol nd mifepristone.

If we see heartbeat on stomach does it refers to pregnency?? even after having -ve home test nd use of misoprostol nd mifepristone.

Not likely: That "heart beat" represents your heart beat that is transmitted from your heart through the major blood vessel of the body - the aorta. It has nothing to do with pregnancy. Even when your pregnant, due to your anatomy, it's not possible to see the fetal heart beat through your belly - that's why doctors have to use a stethoscope to listen to it or an ultrasound to visualize the fetal heart. ...Read more

I am 3 weeks pregnant & ingested mifepristone followed by insertion of misoprostol in vagina after 48hrs without consulting a Dr. Is it safe?

Medical abortion: The combination of mifepristone and misoprostol are used to cause an abortion. If that is not what you want then it is not safe. you should expect very heavy bleeding and cramping in the next few days if the medication works. If you become dizzy, lightheaded, febrile or the heavy bleeding does not stop after 6-10 hrs you need to be evaluated right away. Otherwise you should be evaluated 1-2 wk ...Read more
