Should I Take Medicine To Shrink Uterus Before Surgery
Hydrocele medication: Your surgeon will give you pain medication to take as needed after the operation. He/she will decide if you need any antibiotcs.

Please how do I take mifepristone and misoprostol if I have uterine fibroid and previous scar from cs. The pregnancy is 6 weeks. Is it safe to take ?
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
