    I was given this to dilate my cervix for a biopsy of my uterus, which I didn't end up needing. My symptoms were misconstrued and my dr. ordered an ultrasound and the biopsy to make sure everything was o.k. The ultrasound came out fine but they still ordered the biopsy.

Prior to taking the pill, my OB/GYN advised me to take 800mg of Ibuprofen and also gave me Lortab for pain (as needed).

    I'm 29 y.o. and took Cytotec to soften my cervix prior to IUD insertion. I took it the night before my procedure and had some very mild cramping through the night. It helped make the insertion painless! I'm so glad my NP prescribed this medication.
