Comment:
I was prescribed this three weeks after I had miscarried, but had not expelled the pregnancy tissue yet. I took the first dose of misoprostol (600 mcg orally every six hours three times) and started bleeding a half-hour later. Cramps didn't start until hours later. I was taking 3 motrin every six hours for the pain, but it wasn't nearly enough. I passed a lot of big (but soft) pregnancy ... Show Full Comment

I was prescribed this medication when I learned that I had an abnormal pregnancy, i took as directed (Vaganal) with in two hours I began to cramp as I was told by my doctor it would be like a heavy period. I am someone who tolerates pain very well but I had a very hard time tolerating the pain. The pain Came in waves and the more time lapsed the closer the cramping was. If for some reason this wou ...

I scared myself reading all these terrible stories only to find out it was nothing like what others s ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I was prescribed this medicine (60mcg vaginally) after learning that at 6 weeks I had a missed miscarriage. I chose the pill option because it seemed the less severe option. Unfortunately my body reacted to it in a negative way. I was told it would be mild cramping, a little worse than a period, I was shocked when it was way worse. I'm pretty sure I now know what the start of labor feels like ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
7 weeks pregnant. I asked my doctor for phenergan (for nausea) which I believe, helped me to have a better experience than others. I was terrified of side effects but phenergan made it much easier.

I chose not to take narcotics for pain because I don& ... Show Full Comment
