Comment:
I had an 11 week ultrasound done only to discover my baby stopped growing at 8 weeks. It decided misoprostol might be the best route for me to avoid risk of scarring from a D&C. I took it on a Monday evening and woke up around 1am with severe contractions but nothing came out until 5am. The changes going on in my body made me vomit, dizzy, and weak. I continued to be in this condition for 3 da ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I had a blighted ovum and was prescribed misoprostol instead of the D&C. The doctors, midwives, and nurses told me that there would be more bleeding than normal periods, and heavy cramping. So I was also given a pain killer. What the doctors didnt say is that because bleeding can sometimes occur very heavily with sudden passage of placenta/sacs and other tissues, it can lead to very sudden dec ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I was prescribed this because my ob/gyn felt that I wasnt far along enough to have a d & c.

I took it early in the afternoon and bleed and cramped for 9 hours until I passed the tissue. The worst physical and emotional thing I have ever gone thru. It is basically going t ...
