But because you had a recent abnormal pregnancy it is advised you wait at least 2 months (2 normal periods) before you get pregnant again. You should be taking prenatal vitamins during this time. ...Read more

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

Adequate pain control when taking Cytotec (misoprostol) is certainly advisable in a hospital setting under medical care. ...Read more
