    I took this medication after having a miscarriage. Unlike other reviews, I also had a d&c, I was prescribed to take this medication the night before the surgery. After about two hours of taking two pills, I started cramping, worst than any period I've ever had.

    I was given the option of using this medication when I miscarried (after 6 wks) as an alternative to waiting for my body to expel on its own or having a D&C.

    I was 16 weeks pregnant when I found out the baby had died at 14 weeks. The baby was too large for my body to pass the body naturally. I had to use two pills and insert them into my vagina then 2 hours before the surgery I had to insert two more. I experienced no bleeding but I had painful contractions in my back and stomach. This medication was used to soften my cervix making it safer and easier ... Show Full Comment
