How Should I Use Cytotec Correctly?
Misoprostol is a pill that is taken orally. It should be taken four times a day, before meals and before going to bed. Follow the directions on the package insert carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to clarify any parts you don't understand.
Misoprostol should be taken exactly as indicated. Take no more than the suggested dosage or any more frequently than prescribed by your doctor.
To be successful, misoprostol must be taken on a regular basis. Women should wait until the second or third day of their menstrual cycle to take their first dosage to ensure they are not pregnant (to make sure they are not pregnant).
How Does the Medicine Work?
Medical abortion does not involve a surgical operation and, in most situations, may be performed at home.
Mifepristone and misoprostol are commonly used.
The first tablet is mifepristone, which inhibits the hormone progesterone, which the body requires to maintain the pregnancy.
Misoprostol is administered 24 to 48 hours later. The lining of the womb ruptures a few hours after taking it, producing pain, bleeding, and uterine emptying.
