Misoprost prior to D&C
Tue, 09-11-2012 - 11:52am

My D&C is scheduled for Thursday. The doctor gave me 400mg Misoprost to take at 10pm the night before. Does anyone have any experience with it? Everything I can find online talks about cramping, bleeding, and passing clots as well as nausea, and loose stools, however that is for folks that took an 800 mg dose. Just wondering with a smaller dose what I might expect.

I took it once.  I'm pretty sure at the same dosage that you will be taking it.  I also looked it up and it scared the crap out of me.  I had to have an IUD taken out and then a d&c about 3 or 4 years ago.  They gave the misoprostil to me to begin dialating my cervix so it was "easier" and less "traumatic" or something like that.  I basically took it the night before, slept through the night, and went in the next morning.  I didn't notice anything different.  I didn't have any side effects.  I hope you have the same experience as I did with the misoprostil.
