**I posted this in womens health, but thought I might get more answers in the pregnancy section, since most in this area are women*** I went to the gyn today for my annual exam. I mentioned that I hadn't had a period since the end of Jan/beginning of Feb, and have had at least 10 negative home pregnancy tests. The doctor ran a urine pregnancy test in the office that was negative, and sent off blood pregnancy test. She mentioned that since I hadn't had a period in so long, that if all the tests she sent off came back ok, she would prescribe cytotec. I think she told me it would be used to stimulate the uterus so that I would have a period (maybe I misunderstood, because I was really nervous and ready to go). She said it was important to get rid of all the old linings otherwise it could cause infections and if left longer term possibly cancer. Has anyone heard of this? Has anyone had any experience with cytotec? What can I expect? Thanks Answered by Beryl Toquinto 2 months ago.

maybe this could help. CYTOTEC (MISOPROSTOL) ADMINISTRATION TO WOMEN WHO ARE PREGNANT CAN CAUSE ABORTION, PREMATURE BIRTH, OR BIRTH DEFECTS. UTERINE RUPTURE HAS BEEN REPORTED WHEN CYTOTEC WAS ADMINISTERED IN PREGNANT WOMEN TO INDUCE LABOR OR TO INDUCE ABORTION BEYOND THE EIGHTH WEEK OF PREGNANCY (see also PRECAUTIONS and LABOR AND DELIVERY). CYTOTEC SHOULD NOT BE TAKEN BY PREGNANT WOMEN TO REDUCE THE RISK OF ULCERS INDUCED BY NONSTEROIDAL ANTI-INFLAMMATORY DRUGS (NSAIDs) (see CONTRAINDICATIONS, WARNINGS, and PRECAUTIONS). PATIENTS MUST BE ADVISED OF THE ABORTIFACIENT PROPERTY AND WARNED NOT TO GIVE THE DRUG TO OTHERS. Cytotec should not be used for reducing the risk of NSAID-induced ulcers in women of childbearing potential unless the patient is at high risk of complications from gastric ulcers associated with use of the NSAID, or is at high risk of developing gastric ulceration. In such patients, Cytotec may be prescribed if the patient has had a negative serum pregnancy test within 2 weeks prior to beginning therapy. is capable of complying with effective contraceptive measures. has received both oral and written warnings of the hazards of misoprostol, the risk of possible contraception failure, and the danger to other women of childbearing potential should the drug be taken by mistake. will begin Cytotec only on the second or third day of the next normal menstrual period.

Cytotec use for labor induction term - complications? Safety?
is cytotec safe to use for term induction. oral vs vaginal. complications with hyperstim or complications with infant - short term or long term. Asked by Jackeline Carbo 2 months ago.

Cytotec can be a little risky. It can cause hyperstimulation of the uterus, which can stress the baby. It also has an increased risk of uterine rupture due to this hyperstim. It's a pill, so it dissolves in the vagina, which means there's no way to get it back. You just have to wait until the effects are gone, or give a shot to stop the contractions. The drug itself has no effects on the baby. Obviously if your uterus ruptures you can have major effects to the baby. Vaginal dosing is certainly more effective, however it's also a lot more dramatic. Tends to work pretty fast on an unfavorable cervix. Oral use isn't nearly as effective, or really very effective at all. It doesn't seem to cause the hyperstimulation. Cytotec shouldn't be used vaginally after the water is broken, so most docs tend to use this initially to get dilitation started, then after a few hours break the patient's water and start her on pitocin. I've seen this drug be very effective, and work really really fast. Like from no pain to a baby in less than thirty minutes. I would be sure to ask the doctor if a doctor will be in the hospital while this is going on. Most smaller hospitals do not keep an ob doc there all night routinely. Discuss the risk of uterine rupture, and the possible effects of this med on the baby with your doctor. Answered by Madeleine Nikkel 2 months ago.

Why are you being induced? I have read many negative things about cytotec, including uterine hemorrhage leading to hysterectomy, maternal death and even fetal death. Induction, in general, overrides your body's natural processes, and makes for a much more difficult delivery. For example, when you go into labor naturally, your body releases oxytocin - that makes your uterus contract, and causes the release of your natural pain-killers. If you are induced, your body doesn't release oxytocin, so you get no natural pain relief. Let the baby come when he or she is ready, and when your body is ready. Unless you have a really serious medical reason for induction, and being 4 or 5 days past dates doesn't count... Answered by Dante Trivette 2 months ago.

Answered by Dorian Polly 2 months ago.

Cytotec® can cause abnormally strong uterine contractions (hyperstimulation or tetany) so strong that the uterus ruptures, resulting in severe injury or death of the mother and child. It can cause such heavy bleeding that to save the mother's life, her uterus must be removed (hysterectomy), leaving her incapable of bearing another child, and disrupting her natural hormones. The violent contractions it provokes also increase the risk of amniotic fluid emboli that can result in a stroke or death. The effect of Cytotec on later growth, development of a child has not been established. Many, or maybe most doctors and nurses using this drug do not know these risks their patients face Based on this article you killed your child, and probably harmed yourself in the process. You may never have kids again as a result but that may be for the best. You should probably see a doctor and find out what long-term damage you did to yourself. You should never take the life of an innocent baby for something as trivial as a break-up with a boyfriend. I assume you are very young based on such an immature and selfish decision. Therefore you should not be having sex in the first place if you cannot cope with the consequences. Answered by Lynna Rankin 2 months ago.

NO. Most likely there is no baby in there anymore. The test showed positive because you still have some hormones left in your body from the pregnancy. You where pretty selfish by killing your baby. You can take another test in a couple of weeks and hopefully it comes out negative :) After all that's what you wanted right..... Answered by Vito Shmidt 2 months ago.

Go see a doctor. You will still get a positive due to the hormone in your body. But sounds as if you had a miscarrige. Most likely your child isn't disabled. You killed it already. Go see a doctor. Next time you try an abortion think first. Answered by Sharyn Vandermolen 2 months ago.

The baby is gone the hormone that pregnancy tests detect just stays in your system for a while after you have an abortion sorry hun Answered by Gavin Bousquet 2 months ago.

Cytotec and pitocin?
im getting induced tomarrow night at 5, and i was wondering about cytotec and pitocin... any experiance with it? how long did it take? Asked by Shenna Tekell 2 months ago.

I started pitocin around 5am and delivered at 2:48pm. I had a great experience. The only thing is with pitocin comes much stronger contractions! If you are planning an epidural, get it at the first sign of pain, my anesthesiologist was in a c-section and I had to wait an hour and a half for mine and I was in horrible pain. If you are not planning on having an epidural, i'd suggest you reconsider :) After the epidural I delivered a very healthy 6lb 11oz baby girl :) Answered by Chrissy Morena 2 months ago.

My labor intensified about 2 hours after starting pitocin... I think I went from 2cm to 6 cm in 4 hours... Not sure if that's long or not... But the contractions intensified and became less than one minute apart and I couldn't handle them coming so close together with no rest... I ended up getting a epidural after 6 hours of labor... He was born 6 hours later... Answered by Kirby Arguellez 2 months ago.

be carefull on that if you r at 9 months and all is ok the doctors will tellyou if this is available or not at some point if this goes bad u can start bleeding and lose the baby so be carefull and askkkkk everysecond to the health personal close to you whatttttttt is going on. if the heart of the baby start going down u may need to geta surgery.

Cytotec can be administered in two ways: Oral and Vaginal. Users are recommended Oral consumption as it helps in providing complete benefit while due to vaginal bleeding, there can be chances of not getting complete results. Cytotec is to be consumed before completion of 8 or 12 pregnancy weeks and it is recommended for early completion. For oral consumption, follow the below procedures: 1) Consume 4 pills of Cytotec of 200 mcg each (800 mcg) in first time. Place the medicine under the tongue and it is recommended to not swallow / chew / break the pills. It is recommended that the user keeps the pills under the tongue for minimum 30 minutes. 2) After a period of 3 hours, consume another 4 pills of Cytotec in the same format. 3) Place the last set of 4 pills after 3 hours by placing it under the tongue. Make sure the pills are not swallowed / chewed. Users can confirm the process at a medical clinic after a period of 14 days. Answered by Don Pleiman 2 months ago.

It is dangerous to abuse the medication in this way and will harm you and your baby in a number of ways. Also, many women suffer deep pain and regret after abortion, be it surgical or chemical. Please reconsider keeping the baby growing inside you--he or she will give you much joy and you will never regret giving your child life. If you need help or resources with your pregnancy, there are many groups and charities that want to help you and your family. Answered by Loretta Baiotto 2 months ago.


Side effects of Cytotec?
epilepsy has occured once, any connection? Asked by Porsha Skahan 2 months ago.

Side effects and contraindications The most common adverse effects of misoprostol include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, chills, shivering, sweating, and fever that can last as long as 3 weeks. Because of its abortifacient properties, it should not be taken by pregnant women. Off label uses Obstetric and gynecological Labor Induction Although not approved by the FDA for use as anything other than an ulcer drug, misoprostol is commonly prescribed off-label to cause birth induction by uterine contractions and the ripening (opening) of the cervix.[1] Misoprostol is highly effective and much less expensive than pitocin and cervidil, the FDA-approved drugs for medically necessary labor induction. The crucial difference between misoprostol and pitocin is that pitocin has a half-life of about 10 minutes and is administered via intravenous drip, which can be stopped immediately in the event of adverse reaction. The elimination half-life of sequential doses of misoprostol is not known, administration cannot be reversed, and adverse reactions can occur hours after the drug is taken. [2] The number of adverse effects is significantly greater in women treated with misoprostol than with cervidil. The manufacturer of Cytotec has explicitly warned that it is not approved for use in labor induction. The "routine" use of Cytotec is controversial. Speeding delivery can be medically necessary when the mother is overdue or at risk because of high blood pressure or diabetes, but critics charge that doctors often rely on Cytotec for "convenience inductions," using the drug to induce labor during office hours rather than letting nature take its course. "Cytotec enables doctors to practice daylight obstetrics," says Dr. Marsden Wagner, a neonatologist who served for 15 years as a director of women's and children's health in industrialized countries for the World Health Organization. "It means that as a doctor, I can come in at 9 a.m., give you the pill, and by 6 p.m. I've delivered a baby and am home having dinner." [3] In May, 2005, the FDA sent out an alert to women, warning them against the use of Cytotec.[4] A clinical trial is currently underway to establish a controlled delivery method for misoprostol.[5] High doses can cause fetal death and uterine rupture and severe fetal brain damage [6] Whilst the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists advocates its use in labor inductions, the majority does not: the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and Searle (manufacturer of Cytotec) as well as opinions of obstetric organizations in Britain, Canada and Scandinavia, International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics, the World Health Organization and evidence based medicine Cochrane Database review.[7] Answered by Elba Bellar 2 months ago.

Answered by Gil Gostomski 2 months ago.

Cytotec violently causes the cervix to open. Women have had horrible complications from it. If you and the baby are fine, you should really wait another week before considering inducement. If you do get induced, tell the doctor you want your water broken first, to see if that starts labor naturaly - it often does! After that, pitocin can bring on the contractions, and it helps if they start out with a small dose, upping it gradually to help you progress further. I'd totally refuse cytotec!!! Don't jeapordize yours or your baby's health! You have a right to insist on what kind of treatment you do and don't want! This isn't the time to be afraid and just do what the doctor wants. Take charge of your own health, and that of your baby. Answered by Nyla Vittorini 2 months ago.

did they explain what exactly it is? i dont know what it is. but does it go thru an iv or what? what are u dialted and effaced to? i was dialted 1 cm and 50% effaced and i went in to the hospital at night they put this gel on my cervix called cervadil which is supposed to rippen your cervix... then in the morning they start the pitocin. well i woke up at 4am wayy before th epitocin and i was already i nlabor. maybe you can mention these things to your doctor but if your not comfortable with the medicine they talked about dont hesitateto say something Answered by Toccara Croom 2 months ago.

My cervix is soft and thin but not dilated so they want to use cytotec to open it up. I heard this stuff can work fast so question is how soon after receiving it did you have your baby and how far dilated where you first? Answered by Julian Wampole 2 months ago.

Not only is cytotec not made for the purpose of labour induction, it is actually contraindicated for labour induction, which means that the drug company that makes it specifically says NOT to use it for this purpose. The risks of cytotec aren't just uterine rupture. Other risks are: hyperstimulation of the uterus, extreme maternal hemorrhage, amniotic fluid embolism, extremely violent and painful uterine contraction. Instead of cytotec, why not have them try cervadil first? Cervadil has none of the risks of cytotec. Unlike cervadil, once cytotec is administered, there's no turning back - there's no way to stop the effects. By the way, uterine rupture with cytotec induction doesn't just happen with women who have had a previous c-section. There are cases of women with no uterine scars who have had ruptures with a cytotec induction. You can try evening primrose oil to help soften the cervix as well - it can be taken orally, and also inserted vaginally. Answered by Clelia Odil 2 months ago.

I was induced at 37 weeks with cytotec (then switching to pitocin later). From the start of the induction to delivery was 20 hours for me. Answered by Cheryl Afoa 2 months ago.
